Weekends are the best time to bond with my kids via indoor or outdoor activities. For indoor activities, we will gather together to read or cook. Whilst outdoor, we will head for the playground or sports recreation center. While racking my brain for weekend activities last week, I decided to accept a challenge from HP to join their latest campaign HP Little Makers Challenge! Are you excited to find out what’s it is all about?
What’s in the blue box? Let me show you 😀
HP Little Makers Challenge
This year HP Malaysia has decided to get us into the creative zone by introducing the HP Little Makers Challenge. In alignment with the Ministry of Education’s focus on technology-based learning, the HP Little Makers challenge incites creativity in an advanced learning environment for children with technology and play-based learning.
HP Little Makers Challenge is designed for parents, teachers and children to create, think and play together. This makes the fun environment a great bonding session for everyone involved! Children between the ages of 5 to 12-years-old are eligible to participate in challenges for prizes, while schools stand a chance to win a HP Idea Lab worth RM20,000.
There’s 8 challenges in HP Little Makers and five winners are chosen every two weeks in the “Challenge of the Week”. Winners will walk away with RM500 worth of HP products!
My “Challenge of the Week” – Around The World
My kids and I were so excited to try out the challenge in HP Little Makers. After setting up our HP printer, we headed to HP Little Makers Challenge microsite to find out challenge for the week.
Week 4 challenge was ‘Around The World’ and we were pretty game about it! Firstly, we printed the colorful world map and piece it together with glue. The kids were super hyped pointing out the continents of the world to me.
To make it easier, you can download the HP Smart App which helps print wirelessly from Android and Apple iOS smartphones and tablets.
Next, we printed the popular landmarks that represents the continents. Using a scissors, we cut out the pieces to paste on the world map. There’s different landmarks given such as Twin Towers, Pyramids of Giza, Igloo, Statue of Liberty and many more.
It was truly an educative interactive learning session for me and the kids. They were asking so many questions on the continents and landmarks. It took some time to explain to them but every second was simply worth it! Finally, our world map is ready and its uploaded at the contest entry.
Here’s a recap of the Steps to join HP Little Makers Challenge:
There are still 4 more challenges to go and the online challenges are updated on a bi-weekly basis at HP Little Makers Challenge microsite.
I can’t wait to have a go at the upcoming challenge and gather my kids for another round of educative fun! You too can participate in this challenge, head over to HP Little Makers Challenge microsite today!
