May 6th is World Kids Colouring Day - Join in, draw & colour, help others!

Pens and pencils at the ready and let's go! Imagination and creativity can give us all a boost in difficult times. So once again this year, we at STAEDTLER are inviting all children aged between three and twelve to take part in World Kids Colouring Day.

STAEDTLER launched its annual World Kids Colouring Day in 2008. And this year for the first time, school classes and nursery school groups are not able to undertake joint colouring projects in the period around 6th May. But even at home, children can still pick up their paper and coloured pencils and head off on a “Galaxy Adventure”. And anyone getting creative at home is still working together to make a difference. Because for every picture submitted, STAEDTLER will give one Euro to the aid organisation Plan International.

This year the great colouring and charity campaign is all about “Galaxy Adventures”. Simply create a picture and send it in by post - and make a difference!

Participation period: 01.04.2020 - 30.06.2020

Here's how it works:

1. Create picture

2. Send picture to STAEDTLER:

Subject: World Kids Colouring Day 2020
Moosäckerstraße 3
90427 Nuremberg

3. Make a difference!

Join in, draw & colour, help others!

Theme: Galaxy Adventure

"Galaxy Adventure" - the motto of this year's campaign promises particularly dazzling and colourful entries. How do children imagine other worlds? Is there life on distant universes? Is there a lot of glitter or dusty desert? Thanks to World Children's Painting Day, we can look at "foreign galaxies" through children's eyes.

Painting for Rwanda - painting for more education

This is now the third time that STAEDTLER is supporting the aid organisation Plan International on World Kids Colouring Day with one euro for each picture submitted. The proceeds will support the project "Good Education for Children" in Rwanda, which provides a safe and child-friendly learning environment and sustainably strengthens the learning conditions at 25 kindergartens and 20 primary and secondary schools in the districts of Bugesera and Nyaruguru in Rwanda.
