Activities using old newspapers




Game - Islands - working in pairs
give each pair a piece of paper to stand on, get them to fold it in half and stand on it again, keep repeating making it harder and harder until only one pair are left

building - give each lodge paper and sellotape, pick a challenge - tallest tower, bridge that can hold..... and set a time limit for them to build it

snowball fight - a great way to tidy up, after some fun throwing at each other get into teams and see who can fill a bin bag with snowballs first
