OS Map Drawing Competition
I like the look of this competition, open to children under 12 years old, and the sample map that has been provided here.
Here's the information:
We would like you to draw a map of what you think Santa's town looks like. You can create your map on paper or on your computer, and we will choose our favourite to win a family trip to Lapland.
The trip is just before Christmas, on the 22 of December, and includes:
Return flights from Gatwick Airport to Lapland
A Snowmobile trip
Journey by sled pulled by real huskies
Reindeer sleigh ride
Build a snowman and have a snowball fight!
Have a go in a toboggan
Finding and meeting Santa with gifts for each child
The trip is for two adults and two children up to the age of 12.
So what should you draw? Think about what sort of buildings and other things Santa would need to make toys for all the children in the world. Have a look at some real maps and see what kind of things appear there, and then use your imagination to create your own!
