The Creative Play Awards 2017 are now open for entries

Published on: 21st July 2017

The specialist awards programme specifically seeks out the best in creative play.

Now in its tenth year, the Creative Play Awards are sponsored and organised by Creative Steps magazine which promotes creative play as vital in a child’s development. The magazine is a source of inspiration and ideas for thousands of parents, childcarers, nursery & primary school teachers, along with many activity group and guiding leaders.

Within the scheme there are many categories which cater to the testing and criteria required for creative toys and accessories, including girl’s and boy’s craft kits to painting/colouring/modelling materials and imaginative role play. In addition to those mentioned, there are also categories such as SEN toys and games and outdoor toys and games.

The awards specifically cater for the difference in age range suitability, and offer an opportunity to highlight new products within the sector.

The results will be published in the Christmas edition of Creative Steps, out in November, as well as on the Creative Minds website, which reaches over 40,000 adults who regularly use craft products with children.

The closing date is Friday 15th September 2017. For more information or to receive an electronic entry form contact or call 01327 227 010 and ask for Ellie.
