Shorter days and cosy nights call for fun activities!

And what better time than the school holidays?! We want to support, nurture, and encourage our minis to unleash their creativity and here's an amazing opportunity for them to design an illustration for next year's summer collection! 

1. Let your mini have a go at creating an illustration (on an A4 sized paper), or download and print out our template at home here. This year, we're keeping the themes more open, and we'd love to see what your little one comes up with! For inspiration or to get started, here are some ideas:
🎨Unusual Combinations
🎨Gender Neutral
🎨Good Vibes

2. Take a photo of your mini with their illustration/s 📸 This photo will be used on our social media channels to announce our winner if selected. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not include your minis photo. Additionally, please provide a separate photo or scan of their illustration.

3. And send these through via email to colette@bandofboys.co.nz along with your mini's details 📩:
📍 Name
📍 Age
📍 Size
📍 Story behind the drawing

Feel free to share the artistic process on your social and tag us with your mini's creations! #BOBTGCArtComp

The young artist behind the winning artwork will receive the t-shirt in their chosen size, and will also receive recognition on our social channels during the SS25 season.

Note: if selected you will not receive your tee until SS25 is released (approx. September 2025).
