Daily through May and June
Each day Little Inventors will be posting a creative challenge each day!
All you have to do is upload your drawing to their website.
We will choose our favourite invention every week and the winner will receive their own copy of the Little Inventors Handbook to keep the ideas flowing!
They have also created resource packs with the daily challenges so you can revisit them when it suits you - you can download them from their resource page or download them below.
Closing date - Friday 22nd May
It’s Settle Stories 10th year. To celebrate we are launching the Yorkshire Festival of Story, throughout August.

We are looking for stories that:
- are set in Yorkshire
- are imaginative
- have memorable characters
- have an exciting plot
- are no more than 750 words (longer doesn’t mean better)

Draw a robot you’d like to see in the future for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Your robot could do any task or job you can think of – the only limit is your imagination!
When you are drawing your robot idea, think about what it can do, who might use it, how it will behave, and what special parts it will need. Make sure you label your drawing with these important features. You’ll need to wow the judges with your creative idea.
Draw a robot is open to children aged between 5 and 7 years old.
Into Film - Nature in your Neighbourhood
Closing date - Friday 17th June
Filmmaking at home is a great way to keep your children entertained whilst also being a creative way to learn. Whether you have a camera, a tablet or a mobile phone, it's never been easier to make a film with minimal resources, click here for some great tips and tricks to help you and your children or students make their short animations or live action films.
We want children and young people to create a short film and use nature and their surroundings in an engaging and creative way, to capture the calmness and document something they've noticed or appreciated while spending more time in their local area. Whether it's in the garden, the local park, or even from inside the home, the natural world is all around us. Encourage children to get creative and use their natural surroundings to make a short film, 3 mins or under in length (including titles and credits) using what equipment you have in the home. Films can be made on a mobile phone, tablet or camera, and we have a range of filmmaking resources to help support you.
