Walk in the woods
Mirror writing (through the looking glass)
Making flamingoes (could stretch a point & make origami
peace cranes and call them flamingoes - instructions are in
several places on the web)
Caterpillar pom poms on pegs
Bedtime story read each night (use YLs for this!)
Simple card games
Anything with playing cards - card house building competition
mirror day when everything is backwards - grace then Dinner
first, breakfast for tea, desserts before main course - the
playing card wide game : hide a pack of cards around the
hall or grounds and each six has to collect one suit (ie. one
six looks for hearts etc.) All other cards must be left alone.
You could put the jokers out too and let them count for any
card if you wanted to add to it a bit.
Mad Hatter's Tea Party - have your tea outside (weather
permitting!), acquire a couple of of those big yellow teapots
if you can; all sit at a long table, they aren't allowed to
eat cakes until GIC does and every time she shouts "change"
they all move round a seat - and leave their plates and whatever
behind :) NB - if anyone is vegetarian or allergic to any
food, ALL food must be suitable for them!)
a teapot craft :You need one of those little containers
which creamer comes in at restaurants etc. (someone I spoke
to had a word with the canteen staff at work & they collected
them for her!).
Fold a circle of card in half & glue it to the outside of
the container on the opposite side from the extended bit of
plastic (spout!), for a handle. Put a length of pipe cleaner
in the container as a tail.
Glue a cotton wool ball (body) into the container, then a pompom
on top of there as the head. Pink seed bead for a nose with
a few short bits of black thread for whiskers. Ears from fun
foam, and joggle eyes.
is an interesting "Through the Looking Glass" experiment
