**********The winners are announced below. It was very difficult to pick them. Caroline said, “This was really fun when all the pictures were coming in. It’s hard to pick winners knowing how disappointed the other kids are going to be.”
We each picked our favorite for each group without discussing them and then compared our choices. We had to do a lot of discussing and negotiating since we all had different opinions. There wasn’t one that we all agreed on initially! In the end, we came up with these three winners with each of us getting the opportunity to make the final decision about the one we felt the most strongly about.
I’ll be in touch with the moms of the winners to confirm the best email to send the Amazon Gift Card prize.
Thank you for all the great contributions!*********
As we wrap up the summer here, I wanted to do something fun for the kids of my subscribers. I was browsing through my products and looking at the clip art created by one of my favorite clip art artists and felt inspired to do a coloring contest! I ran the idea past Caroline and her response was, “I get to be a judge!” LOL!
So let’s do it!
Here’s how it will happen.
This contest is open only to the children of my subscribers. (If you learned about this contest and aren’t a subscriber, just subscribe at the end of any post.) The prize will only be sent to an email address that is a confirmed subscriber to my newsletter.
There are three age groups in order to level the field of competition a bit:
- 5 years and under
- 6-8 years
- 9-11 years
We’ll pick one winner from each age group. A child may enter only once. The winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card (electronically).
Download the coloring pages pack you need (at the end of the post) and select a picture to color. You may use crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Feel free to add background details to the picture to make it your own!
There are two ways to submit by emailing me at sallie at sallieborrink dot com:
- Scan the colored page at medium or 150 ppi and email to me
- Take a well-lit photo with your phone and email it to me
Deadline to submit is Thursday, August 30, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. EST. Baring unforeseen circumstances, winners will be announced on Friday, August 31, 2018, or as soon after as possible. David, Caroline, and I will be the judges. Our criteria will be choosing the three we like the best.
I will add the entries to the bottom of this post as I receive them so we can all enjoy the creativity of our kids! Feel free to pop in regularly and see the new entries.
These are the pictures for the 5 and under group which you can download below. Don’t use these – they are not the right resolution!
These are the pictures for the 6-8 and 9-11 groups. Don’t use these – they are not the right resolution!
Here are the two files. Simply click on either the knight picture or the carriage picture and the PDF will open. Save to your computer and print the one your child likes best!
We’re looking forward to seeing all the creative kids and how they make the coloring page their own!
Winner for ages 5 and under: Nathan!
Winner for ages 6-8: Jedi!
Winner for ages 9-11: Emma Grace!
