Lift the Lid - hop, skip, jump . . . .
A busy afternoon for families joining in the 'olympic' theme of this month's Lift the Lid. Skipping proved very popular with all ages and several children spending a good 20mins trying to master their co-ordination in order to master their ropes. The drawing table also proved popular with whole families sitting down to draw people cycling, diving, skipping and running..... Stretching and stretching as far as possible to draw appealed to many; bamboo canes attached to charcoal and pens enabled children to reach out to make marks and shapes on the paper from behind a red guideline. Our dice game based on leaving a trail of coloured spots kept some busy for over an hour, spreading their game across the room and overlapping each other with on the spot pile-ups ! Altogether an energetic and fun afternoon .... with parents too giving the skipping a go !
