Creative Challenges for Kids

A creative challenge is kind of like an art contest. But let’s be clear: art is subjective and no piece of artwork is better than another! Cozy Rainbow sees the beauty in every submission to our children’s art and writing challenges. Please use these creative challenges for kids as inspiration, motivation or activity ideas.

Submission Rules:

  1. Email Creative Challenge submissions to with the subject line as the name of the challenge (current challenges listed below).
  2. Artist names can be real or fake.
  3. Include your age. If you are under 13, please have an adult submit your work for you.
  4. All artists are welcome to submit from ages 7-17!
  5. The current contest cycle is open until September 1, 2022.

We have six amazing kid’s art and writing challenges coming up in Season 2! Information about each challenge can be found in the following articles.
