Family First Resources Week Eight

Challenge One – Balloon Rocket Race

What you need:

  • Balloons
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Straws
  • Tape

Extend the length of string as far as you can, given the limitations of your space. Tie one end securely. Thread one straw through each string and tie up the other end. Slide the straw all the way to one end of the string.

Challenge Two

Make your own lucky dip or treat/ treasure box using an old shoe box

Challenge Three

Pin the Tail
Draw and pin up a donkey poster up on the wall, blindfold players one at a time and spin each one in a circle a few times before letting them try to stick the donkey tail as close as possible to its rump!

Of course, it doesn’t have to be a tail or a donkey! Improvise to suit age and interest i.e. with pin the wand to the fairy, pin the beard on the dwarf and pin the tail on the mermaid.
