About the Competition

We are excited to announce our Craft It competition! A chance for all of our family member playgroup sessions (registered with Playgroup WA from 22nd October 2015) to get creative and win some fantastic prizes. By now you would have seen some of our teasers on social media and perhaps even guessed what the competition is, so without further ado we’d like to share our Craft It competition with you.


The Competition

Facebook Teaser number 2All Playgroup WA registered sessions will receive a craft box filled with bits and pieces. The task is to get creative at playgroup and make something from the box and its contents (don’t add anything else to the box).

We recommend setting up a table for the kids and opening the craft box together. What will you create? Maybe a car, perhaps a monster or even lots of little things? Let their imagination run wild!

Once your playgroup session has created something from the box and its contents, take a photo and email it to us with a short description of what you made and your playgroup session details.

On the 23rd November all photos will be uploaded to our Facebook page and everyone will have a chance to vote for their favourite. When the competition closes the image with the most “likes” will be awarded top prize, but don’t worry we will also announce 3 runners up.

As well as prizes for the most “liked” craft creation we also have a prize for the best photo showing the kids working together on the craft project – this photo will be judged by Playgroup WA. Please submit both photos to by midnight, 22nd November 2015.

IMPORTANT: All Craft It competition packs will be posted to the Playgroup Secretaries address as listed in the Playgroup WA database. It is the secretary’s responsibility to distribute the packs among playgroup sessions. Each playgroup session should receive only one Craft it pack. Only sessions registered with Playgroup WA will be issued a Craft It pack so please ensure your playgroup session details are up to date.



Facebook Teaser number 3From the 23rd November we will open the public gallery on our Facebook page and voting begins. To vote on an image all you need to do is “like” it.

Tips for getting a lot of votes – share your image and ask friends and family to vote for your playgroups photo. Please remember to ask people to go back to the Playgroup WA Facebook page and “like” your photo in the Playgroup WA Facebook Gallery.

IMPORTANT: “Likes” on shared images will not be counted, all “likes” must be on the original photo in the Playgroup WA Facebook gallery.

We encourage you to share your entry far and wide to your social media connections. The more “like” you get the better your chance of winning!
