SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

Do you fancy living it up in the South of France? Look no further!

 

 After my mini break to Disneyland Paris last week with the family I came back to four prizes delivered, which was a nice welcome home! We all had an absolute ball; although my purse strings are a lot lighter that's for sure! I've managed to clear all my emails that built up whilst I was away but didn't find any winning ones. And although I am itching to get comping again I have another holiday to prepare for and children to amuse so it'll be a little while before my competition entries get back on track.

 
But for all of you still in comping mode it's over to you guys for my pick of the comps for this week; I'm sending you all lots of luck! And don't forget to keep an eye on my blog for any extra special comps I find.

If your children (and you!) are going a little stir crazy as we edge even further into the long summer break have a look at Pets at Home. They are running free workshops throughout the summer and you can find out more and book here; from small furries to scales and fins there is something for everyone!
 

Good luck and happy comping!

Week six – summer holiday kid’s comps! The end!

That’s it; the end is in sight - the kids are back to school next week! I actually can’t believe how quickly it has gone and it seems odd as we are still on our summer holiday. Back home Saturday though to a mountain of washing and getting the kids prepped for school. Although I was ultra-organised this year and all school uniform was bought, washed and ironed in the first week of the holidays; which is a nice feeling knowing it’s already done!

 

And to keep them occupied for the last few days, here are a couple more comps for the kids to get stuck into.

 

Win some Emoji merchandise by helping the kids to upload a fun selfie. Under 16’s must be entered by a parent. You can enter up to three times every day until 30th November although a maximum of one prize per week can be won by one person. More details and info on how to enter can be found here .

 

Draw your dream dinosaur and have the chance to get it printed on a giant bean bag and a family ticket to the Dinosaurs of China exhibition. Open to entrants aged 11 and under you have until midnight on 30th September to enter. Full details and entry info can be found here .

 

Have fun with these ones and remember normality is nearly here! Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps too. I may not be around tomorrow evening as will be getting ready to leave the lodge early Saturday morning but I’ll catch up with you all via our Facebook page when I’m back.

 

Have a great weekend.
