With most children being unable to go to school and stuck at home, we thought we would give them the opportunity to get their creative juices flowing.

The Barnet Times is encouraging children of all ages to send us a drawing and story of no more than 150 words on their favourite thing they have done or seen over the last week.

Whether they have enjoyed a fun activity in the garden, travelled to new places through the magic of your favourite book, or spent time in the kitchen baking homemade cakes, we want to hear about how they have been enjoying their free time.

Entries will be featured both online and in the paper, with one winning story chosen by our content editor Kelly Pells, who has had short stories published in various writing magazines.

We're looking for a photo of your child with their drawing, and a story of up to 150 words. Submit your entry through the online form below:
