Today we heard the story of Solomon’s wisdom which illustrated the theme of the day – problem solving.
Today was also the first day of Ponty’s Got Talent where a few of the acts that had signed up the previous day were chosen to show their talent to the rest of us – one of the leaders amazed us with her knitted/sewn creations. The plan is to see a few contributions each morning this week.
I led the games with the younger group, the best of which was called ‘Parts of the body on the floor’ in groups of about 6. The game ‘Nellie the Elephant’ was great fun to watch as the kids clambered under legs whilst holding hands.
The next challenge, in groups of 3, was to protect an egg so that it survived a throw from the upstairs window (they were hard boiled, don’t worry). We improvised parachutes out of the given materials, but some were still badly smashed when we checked them later.
While the last groups were throwing their eggs, the rest of us moved on to the next game which was a ‘Sock washing line feely bag game’.
Again we finished with a recap of the mornings theme.
