Well done to the all weather troopers who came along to soup group last night and didn’t stop smiling despite the rain!
The session started with the biggest word search we have ever seen! The kids were split into 2 teams: Boys who were the lightening god apple team and the girls who were the purple thunder team were against each other and against the clock with each team member having 1 minute to try to find a word before swapping with the next person on their side, competing to find different countries. We found many countries from all over the world but the boys won with a decisive 8:4 win!
Next we made art from wax, and we were very impressed with the level of creativity (see pics to be wowed)!
Next, we made our very own bubble machine (well … we made it from sticks, string and good old fairy liquid!) Kaleb showed some great talent in making the biggest bubbles and Sam was very kind in showing kiera how to use it!
You are also probably wondering why we asked you to bring glass jars … Karen Ronald kindly gave us some delicious baguettes and we made our own butter from cream. You do this by shaking whipped cream in a jar (take care – your arm will get tired!) and then we added some wild garlic and enjoyed some delicious garlic bread and marshmallows (which the kids earned by telling us a fact about one of the countries found earlier on the wordsearch … very interesting exercise! ha ha See you all next week!
