Dragons Sneeze Story competition

Closing date EXTENDED TO FRIDAY 18 September

We want to hear your version of the Dragons Sneeze origin story – it can be in any form – a poem, a video, a song, a photo story, cartoon or written narrative.

Ideally you’ll support the children you work/play/live with to create and tell the story, and help them document it – or they’ll do the whole thing on their own and you just send it in! (but we will accept stories from grown ups too.)

Creating your Dragons Sneeze story could be the starting point for a whole range of child-led play. It could also help children explore or rediscover their outdoor setting – we’d love to hear about that too.

We’ll be creating a Dragons Sneeze page on our brand new website (coming soon) – all the stories will appear there.


Our favourite story will be highlighted on our new Dragons Sneeze page and the winner will receive this amazing Dragons Sneeze Fire Lighting Bundle, worth £145!
