IKEA is launching a ‘Design Your Dream Bedroom’ competition for kids

Trine Jensen-Burke

How does €700 worth of IKEA products sound?

Like a dream? I know.

And right now, your child can with this price – all they have to do is design their very own dream bedroom.

Launching this week, IKEA is kicking off their Design Your Dream Bedroom Competition for kids.

Children aged 4 – 8 years old and 9- 12 years old are invited to submit a drawing of their ‘dream bedroom’ in the Kitchen Department at the IKEA Ballymun store in Dublin between Saturday,April 9th – and Sunday, April 24th between 10am- 2pm.

Once the competition closes, one lucky winner will be chosen from each age category, and the parents/guardians of the winning children designs will each win €700 worth of IKEA products – to make their child’s dream bedroom a reality!

Sounds like the perfect activity to keep the kids busy with this Easter break? We know!
