We want to know how your kids use their imaginations! Now through November 20, 2011 we invite you to enter the Step2 Big Imaginations Are Cooking Contest by submitting an essay of 150 words or less that tells a story about your kids playing in an imaginative, unstructured way.
On November 23, ten finalists will be chosen to receive a new Step2 play kitchen and a video camera to create a video of their kid’s imagination running wild with their new kitchen. We’ll then post the videos on our Facebook page. It’ll be up to our Facebook fans to vote for their favorite video between December 12 and January 8 to determine the winner, who will receive the $5,000 grand prize.
To demonstrate and inspire contestants, we partnered with mommy bloggers Anne McGowan of Deal Wise Mommy, Dee Owens of Two Of A Kind, Working On A Full House, Crystal Rapinchuk of Surviving a Teacher’s Salary, and Xenia Sundell of Thanks, Mail Carrier to showcase their belief in the importance of imaginative and creative play for their own children.
