To celebrate Ancient Explorer’s 3rd birthday, we are holding a Solve the Mystery Competition. Read on to find out more about it and how your child can enter.

Who is our new member of Team Ancient Explorer?

Here, in my art studio, I am adding the finishing touches to a top-secret project … very soon, I will announce the new member of Team Ancient Explorer! Our young ancient explorer loves to explore ancient places and is also a good friend of Ana Solana, who is from Cusco, Peru.

To celebrate our new team member, we are holding our first ‘Solve the Mystery’ competition this month. Starting this Friday, 12 June 2020, I will post clues to the new team member’s identity on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Once I have posted all of them, I will then invite our young ancient explorers to solve the mystery and create a short story telling me who they imagine our ancient explorer is and where in the world they are exploring.


As a prize and a thank you, I will award an e-resource to 5 ancient explorers, who create the most interesting and imaginative character profiles of our new team members based on the clues. All children who participate will also receive a colouring page.

How to enter

All children will need written permission from their parents or guardians to enter the competition. Please download the form below. Parents will also need to provide their email address too so that the prize can be sent to them electronically.

Entries can be emailed to us. The email address is supplied in the permission form.

Entries will close on the 28 June 2020 at 12pm AEST.
