World Kids Colouring Day 2021 is open for entries!

Our spring colouring competition for the classroom is back...

In celebration of World Kids Colouring Day 2021, we’re asking UK primary school pupils to pick up a pencil and celebrate the many wonders of our natural world.

Our ‘Sow and Grow’ competition will encourage children to explore and appreciate their natural environment — all while helping them to consider the little things that they can do to help protect it.

To be in with a chance of winning a bundle of AMAZING stationery prizes, your students are invited to use their imagination to design and colour-in their very own enchanted plant, with super-powered leaves.

What will its magical power be? Perhaps it will absorb all of the world’s pollution to help us breathe cleaner air? Or maybe it will grow unlimited money along its branches to remove world poverty? The possibilities are endless!

To enter, all you need to do is download the 2021 KS1 or KS2 competition sheets from our Members’ Area.

Not a member yet? Don’t worry! You can register online today — it’s completely free.


For every competition entry we receive, we will support children’s charity, Plan International with €1 to advance a health and nutrition project for children and families in Peru.

And if that isn’t exciting enough, the first 100 teachers to enter their pupils will also receive this free STAEDTLER stationery pack to add to their pencil case...


Furthermore, our members can also access our bank of optional ‘Sow and Grow’ themed bonus activities to complete with your students.

For regular updates about the competition, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Plus. remember to tag us photos and videos of your pupils taking part — we’d love to share them!

Now, read on for more information on how to get involved…
