Center Parcs January Challenge


bargain beauty tips

Happy New Year and welcome to a brand new Center Parcs family blogging challenge!

As you know, each month Tots100 and Center Parcs come up with a challenge designed to help you and your family explore nature, get creative and have fun! This month’s challenge, which gives you the chance to become a Center Parcs Family Blogger, is all about relaxation. We’d love you to create your very own sanctuary at home and next week we’ll be publishing tips from the fabulous Aqua Sana spa manager to help you on your way!

Once you’ve found time to relax just send a tweet including the hashtag #CPFamilyBreaks to @tots100 and @CenterParcsUK, linking to your blog post with the pics of your sanctuary and tips on how to create the experience, and you could win a family break with Center Parcs. This month’s challenge closes at 4pm on 25th January, so watch this space for inspiration and tips, coming soon! Please find the full terms and conditions for the challenge here.

We’d also love to take a moment to thank all the wonderful bloggers who took part in last month’s challenge, to come up with a poem about the Perfect Elf – you can check out the entries below!
