What Is Your String??

By , March 5, 2007 7:07 pm

Looking for something for you and your kids to do during your non-TV viewing time? Enter the “My String Is A…” contest sponsored by the Center For Screen-Time Awareness and Bubble Gum Books!

The contest is based on the picture book “The Things A String Can Be” written by Julie Goulis and illustrated by John Ferguson. Apparently, the book follows a little boy and his friends who use their imaginations and a piece of string to dream up many adventures. Bubble Gum Books’ press-release says:

“Based on the book’s theme of using the imagination, the ‘My String Is A…?’ contest encourages elementary-school children, teachers and families to use their imaginations to come up with their own ideas of fun things that can be done with string. It could be an activity, project, adventure or anything using string. The idea is to be as creative and imaginative as possible.”

Sounds fun! But hurry up, the deadline is March 16th, 2007 (National Hiccup Day, more on that later)!! The ten most interesting ideas will be announced during TV-Turnoff Week (April 23-29, 2007) and prizes will be awarded. The grand prize is a visit to the winner’s school from the author and/or illustrator of the book.
