In addition to these kits, we also have a wonderful creative competition running with amazing prizes for four children and their nominated schools. All you need to do is get your kids to design their own bug, and share it with us in one of three ways (see details under how to enter below).

In summary:

  • FREE STEM TOYS: 250 schools get My Living World Ant World and Worm World for free if they fill out this form before 31st May.
    They can then use the resources and kits for lessons, and hopefully will be inspired to enter our My Living World Design a Bug giveaway for more great STEM learning resources,
  • Design a bug competition:
    • You don’t have to have claimed these kits to enter. From all the entries, four children will win and receive a bundle of toys from My Living World including Ant World, Bug Safari, Bug Photography Kit, and Pocket Microscope, then
    • The four schools nominated by the four winning children all receive a complete set of the My Living World range, and finally
    • ONE of these four winning schools will also get a visit from Nick Baker.

Doesn’t that sound like an amazing way to end a difficult year?

The My Living World series has been designed, with help from Nick Baker, with fun and learning in mind for kids. Encouraging them to think about, and love, nature and the world around them. Don’t forget you can buy these at Argos, Smyths and Amazon yourselves too.
