Then, encourage your child to start Doodling towards their star and streak target!
My child doesn't have a paid Doodle subscription, can they join the Challenge?
A paid or school subscription is required to register in the Challenge and receive a pin badge and certificate free of charge.
However, these rewards will be available to purchase from the Doodle Store once the Challenge has finished and everyone is welcome to work towards their star and streak target, so all users can join the fun!
