Going Wild “screen free” half term challenge No 2

If you have done the Going Wild “screen free” half term challenge no 1 you will be ready to have a go at No 2!

Remember this isn’t a screen ban, just an exciting outdoor adventure you can do for an hour or so each day, and of course there are loads more ideas in our books if you need any more inspiration.

Challenge 2: Empty the recycling bin and make a boat to float on your enormous puddle.

As always make sure you dress up really warm, and put your waterproofs and wellies (check they have no holes) on.  Find some good “boat” like containers.  Old plastic milk bottles or waxed juice cartons are perfect.  Cut to shape and add little men made from clay or playdough.  Natural materials found in your park or garden help to make your boat spectacular.

Add a bit of string to the bow so you don’t loose it, and launch it on your puddle…

Remember to challenge your friends to make other boats and post pictures and stories on facebook and twitter with the hash tags #screenfree and #goingwildnet and #outdoors for a chance to win a signed copy of one of our books!  Have fun
