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.

Week five – summer holiday kid’s comps!

We’re on to the final countdown now – we are off on our hols tomorrow! So next week’s blog will come to you from sunny (hopefully) Suffolk! We have a lovely lodge booked for the week and a sneaky hotel stay for tomorrow night just as an extra treat. So next week is comp free for me. Although I will try and stay on top of my emails otherwise I will come home to thousands! I’ll keep you all updated on our Facebook page if you fancy having a nose at some of my pics.


But for those of you still needing to amuse the kids, here are a couple more comps for them to get stuck into. And if you missed last week’s newsletter you can check it out here where you will find more for the kids to enter.


Create a lab out of Lego to be in with the chance of bagging £150 of Lego vouchers. There are three age brackets for this one; level 1 – 10 years old and younger, level 2 – Ages 11-16 and level 3 – Over 16s. The competition closes on 1st September with the winners being announced on 15th September. Full details and all the info on how to enter can be found here .


Children between the ages of 5 – 11 years are invited to write a bedtime story. It needs to be 200 – 800 words long and based on the subject of friendship. Entries must be submitted by 23.59 on 2nd October and there will be a winner in each of the 3 age categories and they will receive £250 of books from Book People for themselves and for their schools.


Have fun with these ones and I’ll include some more next week! And for the rest of you keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps. Also I’ll be around in the evening via our Facebook page (Wi-Fi/internet access permitting) if anyone fancies a comping chat.


Have a great weekend.
