Whether your child is enchanted by the sounds of the ocean or would love to see a giraffe on safari, this month’s Lonely Planet Kids’ creative challenge is all about seeing the world through the eyes of your explorers-in-training!


Follow the instructions below for a chance to win a bundle of Lonely Planet Kids books, including the latest Let’s Explore… activity book range.


We want to see what the animals of this world would look like if your child was in charge. Would zebras have spots rather than stripes? Would parrots’ plumage be hot pink? Download the colouring sheet and let their imaginations run wild!

  2. By Twitter: Tweet a photo of their completed activity sheet to @lpkids including #lpkidschallenge.
