Time for Challenges
Older kids love challenges, quizzes, blind tests and basically anything that creates some competition. So, have some fun, make some teams and let the games begin.
— I will have you take on a few challenges. The most impressive team wins. Are you ready?
— How many planets are there in the solar system? (eight) Can you give me the names of four planets? (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, the Earth) What is a star? (a huge ball of gas)
— Want to carry on?
— What is a baby camel called? (calf) A baby kangaroo? (joey) A baby frog? (tadpole) A baby cat? (kitten). Shall we continue?
— Who are the baddies in Harry Potter? Which soccer team won the last World Cup? Of which country is Paris the capital city? Would you like some more challenges?
— I would like one person of each team to stand up. Margot and Henry? Count up to 10 standing on one foot. Well done! Oscar and Lucy, I would like you to imitate the cry of a whale! Very well done. Matthew and Harriet, I would like you to make your most horrible funny face. Lewis and Charlotte, can you do the splits? Well done everybody!
You can have them do a cartwheel, a headstand for 10 seconds with their feet against a wall, hold their breath for as long as possible, sing Head and Soulders as quickly as possible… the list goes on!
