Ideas for the Summer Break

3rd August 2020

To apply for a Blue badge you must:

  • Be between 6 – 15 years old
  • Ask your parent or guardian for permission and ask them to read the Privacy Notice on the website.
  • Please send us a creative contribution to earn your badge. This could be a poem, a story, some artwork, a model, a recipe, a suggestion for the show, or an interesting letter telling us about something you have done linked to your hobbies and interests
  • Also include: your full name, your date of birth, your home postal address and postcode (not your school address)
  • Post it to Blue Peter with the correct stamp on it (you'll need a 'large letter' stamp if sending an A4, or to pay for parcel postage if bigger than a letter)

Send your application letter and any other materials to the following address:

Blue Peter
