Hi penguin family! It’s time for our first ever Igloo Challenge here on The Islanders – where we all build igloos around a quick and fun theme and then tour everyone’s amazing creations. Ahead of this month’s Medieval Party coming soon, our theme for August’s challenge is Quirky Kingdom. Want to know more about how you can get involved with Igloo Challenge? Keep reading and we’ll tell you everything you need to know.
This month’s theme: Quirky Kingdom
Kingdom igloos have always been popular on Club Penguin and Club Penguin Island – and many of you may have already built one. With a mighty castle for the king or queen at the heart and magnificent nature decor all around, these igloos are perfect for the upcoming Medieval Party. For our Igloo Challenge, we want you to give this classic igloo a fun twist. Can you create the most out-of-the-box kingdom ever? You can decorate a kingdom igloo you’ve already built with quirky decorations, or you can build a new igloo. Here’s a few mini-kingdoms I created to help inspire your creations.
Bouncy Sandcastle Kingdom
With a bouncy sandcastle right in the middle, the monarchs who live here clearly love a good day at the beach. The Throne Room and Kitchen are only a bounce away, or you can make a splash in the golden pool. And there’s, of course, plenty of treasure and sand. The kingdom band can jam out on the Music Stage and provide entertainment to everyone.
Who says you need to use Castle Walls to build a castle? This castle uses only crates to make its own building, complete with a mini trampoline to get to the thrones on the rooftop. Meanwhile, mysterious scrolls, barrels, crystals and an anvil sit below – the secrets they hold are yet to be discovered. This is great for non-members, since Crate Co Crates are for everyone and possibilities with them are endless.
Proving you don’t need anything fancy to make a great kingdom, this enclosed space is all about being one with the environment around us. Fancy waterfall thrones are where the king and queen sit and do their royal duties of… sitting, eating and sitting. A campfire keeps the place nice and toasty and dinner is served on… a volcano?! Did anyone do a health and safety check on this place?!
If you don’t want to create a full igloo but have some spare space in one of your igloos, that’s the perfect place to make a mini-kingdom! As long as you have fun building for the challenge, we’ll have fun visiting what you’ve made for everyone. If you’d like to visit any of my mini-kingdoms, they’re all open to explore in my igloo now!
How to get involved
Joining in with our Igloo Challenge is as easy as coming to our meetup this Friday where we’ll check out everyone’s igloos and I’ll feature some of them right here! If you can’t make it to the meetup or can’t wait to share what your quirky kingdom is, you can always leave a comment and we’ll be sure to visit it on our tour route. There will be plenty of Party Blasters at the meetup too, so be sure to be there if you can. Here’s when and where it’s all happening:
Zone: Beacon Boardwalk
When: Friday 17th August, 1pm PST
I hope to see you there! Have a great time building, everyone, and until next time…
