What a slippery slidey session it was with the Adventure Kids tonight with some lizards, crabs and frogs along the way! The Adventure Kids were flying it from the start with the Mammy’s and Granny’s coming on strong too.
We started off with some warm ups – jumping over a log, forwards and backwards. The kids thought this was easy until they did it a few times and ended up very hot and out of breadth. Then it was the adults turn and boy were they good tonight. No bother to them, jumping backwards and forwards. We headed up the hill to do some frogs jumps and some balance work and then the crab, which looked easy (at least JuJu made it look easy). It wasn’t so easy when we all tried it. Trying to keep the bellies up when moving was tough and some just lay down on the ground with arms out!
The tug of war with JuJu’s special rope was so much fun; the adults made the kids sit down so they could have their own fun and boy were they competitive!! There was a lot of pulling with a no mercy attitude (ha!), pulling people down the hill!! But, with so much laughing while doing it. When the kids saw the parents, they wanted another go and really gave it socks this time.
We headed up into the trees and did some running over tree stumps as light as can be, tap, tap, tap. Then we did some running down single paths and through some brambles and back to the steep section of the woods where we put the crab into action and JuJu showed us how to get down the steep hill. Well, the kids flew down and so did the Mammy’s and Granny’s (some a lot faster than others!!).
JuJu thought the kids about steep ground and how to stand safely. Then, we did some edging around the top of the steep slippy woods. JuJu showed the kids how to run down a less steep section and each child took their turn, some ending up on their bums. Then it was the parents turn and they did great, getting down the hill but some needed help stopping!!
The lizard came into play as JuJu showed us how to get back up the hill. Again, no problem to everyone, I think they all quite enjoyed it. Everyone took turns crawling like a chameleon on a fallen tree, again just having so much fun with nature…a perfect playground tonight.
