Join Thrive's Christmas art challenge for a worthy cause

20th November 2023 | Blogs | News

As the festive season approaches, Thrive is thrilled to announce a heartwarming initiative that celebrates the holiday spirit and fosters creativity among young minds. We invite schools to join us in spreading joy by sending in your pupils’ artwork! 

Pupils are encouraged to create a festive piece of artwork that we can use to adorn our Christmas tree! We have two options for your pupils to choose: 

  1. Create a Christmas bauble! Choose between our ready-to-use bauble template or let your imagination take the lead and draw one from scratch.
  2. Use your hand to create a festive design! Simply trace around your hand and bring it to life – turn it into a jolly reindeer, a Christmas tree, or let your imagination run wild with an abstract design.

Whether keeping it classic by colouring in with red and green or unleashing their creativity with a kaleidoscope of colours, pupils are encouraged to express themselves freely. Paints, pom poms, and other arts and crafts are welcome additions, turning each design into a unique masterpiece.  

The gift of giving back

At Thrive, we believe in the magic of giving, especially during the holiday season. To recognise and appreciate the efforts of every participating school, we will donate a Christmas present to a vulnerable child through Action for Children’s Secret Santa campaign.

How to enter

To take part in this heartwarming activity, schools are invited to send all artwork in one package to Santa's Little Helpers at Thrive HQ by December 13th.  

Each piece of artwork should include the child or young person’s age and the name of their school on the back, which we will use for shoutouts on our social media platforms. 

Address for Santa's Little Helpers at Thrive HQ: FAO The Marketing Team, Thrive, The Quadrangle, 1 Seale Hayne, Newton Abbot, Devon TQ12 6NQ 

We plan to adorn our Christmas tree with the submissions, capturing the true essence of the festive season. Stay tuned on our social media platforms for updates!  

Join Thrive in making this holiday season truly magical for both participating schools and vulnerable children. Let's come together to celebrate creativity, and the joy of giving back. Together, we can make this Christmas a time to remember for everyone involved.
