How to make CHRISTMAS CRACKERS

How to make CHRISTMAS CRACKERS

These crackers can be made by young children as well as adults. I have made them with children as young as Year 5, no problem providing that each component is already measured and cut out for them. Adults: you may make these for the dinner table as you can choose a nice gift for the inside instead of silly items, you can make each gift suit the person and label the cracker up as a dinner seating arrangement. The cracker snaps can easily be ordered on line and by replacing them each year, these crackers become re-cycleable. Have fun...

Backboard Icebreaker Communication Game - Small or Large Groups

Backboard Icebreaker Communication Game - Small or Large Groups

Parents, Teachers, Educators... you have located a team game that has engaged everyone who has played it so far. Backboard is more than just a game. It is an opportunity to work together as a team and enhance communication, motor skills, and social pragmatics with your students either as an ice breaker activity in school or family board game at home. The goal of the game is to move your pieces along the journey of the game board and reach the end. While in transient, you will encounter 4 different types of drawing cards. Each type represents a level of increasing difficulty. For each card, there will be a translator [player who describes the card to the drawer] and a transcriber [player who draws the shape]. Each card has a specially engineered shape that the transcriber will have to describe to the drawer. The Drawer will have a specific amount of time to draw that shape. After time expires, the transcriber will match that shape to the translator’s master card. If the shapes match, points will be earned and they will advance.

Snow White Activity Pack

Snow White Activity Pack

A detailed and wide range of activities based on the traditional version of Snow White. This is an overview of a unit of work, which can be used in conjunction with the story or a trip to the pantomime and is most suitable for children from EYFS to lower Key Stage 2, although the ideas may be cherry picked and developed for older pupils. Most of the activities are based in drama, art & technology and literacy, and there are opportunities for outdoor learning which encompass geography and design technology. Included in the pack are background notes on the history and changes to the text since it first appeared in print, suggested further reading and almost unnecessary references to Chris Hemsworth. I have included detailed notes on how I would approach telling the tale to a class as a oral tale - where I would have breaks for discussions and to create tension.
