Craft 33/365. Squirrel brooch

Tough day today with many challenges. Tried a new game to inspire children in learning active verbs, so stepped out of my comfort zone. I wrote a verb on a large piece of paper and then scrunched it up into a tight ball. I instructed the children that the aim was to catch the ‘paper snowball’ and open it, then add an active verb until we had built up a large collaborative list of active verbs while actively tossing the ball from person to person. By the time we had finished the starter activity there were several verbs on the multi-creased piece of paper. It certainly engaged them, but they did become rather over zealous with enthusiasm!

My favourite verb … Squirrelling lol!
