Made from Cardboard – a FAMILY competition
Have fun with your family dreaming up and making a cardboard creation – a good use for all those boxes from online deliveries as well!
Your Queen’s Park – an art competition for kids
Show us what you like best in the Park, in a drawing or painting. It might be something in the playground, one of the animals, or maybe you like a particular tree, or the Pitch and Putt course. (It could even be a picture of you, eating an ice cream from the café…)
Work will be judged in two categories:
- Up to and including Year 2
- Years 3 to 6 inclusive
