Well done to all the Adventure Kids who braved the Irish Weather today and came out for a super session this afternoon in the wet and crazy rain..
It certainly didn’t dampen any spirits and the kids started off running around the woods to stay warm and get used to the underfoot of the forest, As well as jumping over BMX ramps. JuJu did some more warm up exercises with balance being the main focus. All the kids were great at their karate kicks and wagging their tails!! So much fun 😉
Once we were warmed up it was time to hit the muddy trails and have more fun! We headed into the woods and stopped at the big wet rock. After JuJu showed us how to get up the rock safely, the kids took their turns. It wasn’t easy but they all mastered it and jumped off the rock with great enthusiasm. The parents didn't find this task as easy and most of us slipped and some of us fell! But we all got up in the end.
From here we all ran along the Wicklow way with JuJu while jumping into or over the wet roots and puddles having lots of fun ( as seen in our film ).
JuJu came up with a new style of "tug of war" (with a difference) was a great success, with everyone holding the rope in a circle and pulling the rope as hard as they could. All the kids loved it. After the rope circle, we did relays – speedy girls and boys today and lots of help from the Mums and Dads and grandma’s too!
Everyone was very wet by now and we all know that the rain makes puddles (lots of them!!! ) we had lots of fun jumping into puddles today, splashing, kicking and getting our hands & bodies as dirty as we could!
We were all so wet anyhow, more wet didn’t matter!!
Before we finished up, we played hide and go seek in the woods with JuJu finding everyone and then one more game of Tip the Can…running and chasing around the woods, having a great laugh.
Today’s session was wet and dirty but the kids didn’t care and everyone enjoyed feeling free in the forest!
