Cindy and Robert also brought a selection of puppets for us to use and a real puppet theatre. There were string puppets (marionettes), shadow puppets and finger puppets just to name a few. We had fun preparing little shows to perform, using funny voices and our imaginations.
There were some Maori games too. The spinning tops were fun to use and there was a special one that you 'whipped' with flax to keep spinning. We also played some playground games from the olden days. They had lots of chants/rhymes and didn't require any equipments.
While groups of students were busy exploring the many ways children entertained themselves before plastic, devices and electricity, the remaining students joined together for an extra special discovery! There was such a lot to choose from, lots of team work, creativity and smiles on display!
What a fabulous day it was (even in the wet!!)
