Children across the UK have been home from school for two weeks now, as the UK remains on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic .

To get their creativity flowing, national broadcaster ITV has announced its new initiative: ITV Kids Create.

It is encouraging kids across the UK to be creative while at home and submit their artwork for a chance to have it featured on ITV’s idents (the ITV logos broadcast before and after ad breaks).

How can my kids get involved?

ITV said in a statement: “We are making a very special ITV logo featuring artwork created by kids at home across the nation.

"So, for a chance to be part of it, draw, paint or sketch us your best picture. Then ask your parent or guardian to post a photo of your artwork using #ITVKidsCreate and @ITV to Twitter or Instagram.”

You can download the ITV template from itv.com/itv-kids-create, and start colouring in. Drawings must be on an A4 size piece of paper and the submission must be a photograph of this drawing.

To submit a picture via social media, simply visit ITV’s Instagram or Twitter page and tag @ITV and use the hashtag #ITVKidsCreate. If ITV like the image, a member of the team will contact you by direct message on these platforms.

As many pictures as possible will be used, with on-screen credit for each submission broadcast and they will be on ITV this month.

Submissions open today, Monday April 6 and close on Sunday April 19 at midnight.
