Haven Pharmacy want to encourage children in Waterford and Tipperary to be more creative and get involved in arts and crafts this autumn.

They have launched their Healthy Minds Colouring Competition, which will be judged by a panel including legendary artist and TV personality Don Conroy.

Research commissioned by Haven Pharmacy has revealed that nearly one in three children spend a minimum of two hours daily in front of a screen whilst only 20% of children engage in arts and crafts every day. Haven’s research found an overwhelming 75% of parents to be worried about the potential negative effect technology may be having on their children’s mental and physical health. 80% of parents would like to see their children involved in more arts and crafts. Haven Pharmacy’s Healthy Minds Colouring Competition is a great way to encourage children to stretch their creativity in arts and crafts during Back to School time.

The competition will have two separate age categories for kids aged 4-7 years old and 8-12 years old. Entrants are invited to showcase their skills and colour in an illustration drawn by judge Don Conroy, to be in with the chance to win some great prizes including a family holiday for two adults and two children worth €1,500 in a luxury suite at Delphi Adventure Resort in Connemara, Co.
