Jeez, it’s a pretty sweet time to be a kid, what with school being out and your parents being in.
And then, there’s all that free TV YouTube silly and online games and courses to enjoy.
Well, just to make sure these little tykes keep on feeling the love during these strange, self-isolating days, alongside our Splash of Colour art competition, there’s also the Good Eggs Of History challenge, and now, a wide-ranging and top-of-the-range competition put together by the good people Newtown.
Organised by workspace Hub13 along with Newtown2050 and the local Tidy Towns gang, this art competition is open to kids from 7 to 18 years of age who live within a six-mile radius of our Wicklow neighbours.
