Create a Time Capsule
Linked to the 25 Home Challenges, let’s create a time capsule of all the things you make, collect and do.
Put it in a safe place and set an opening date so you can look back on the things you achieved when the country went, well, a little bit strange.
Click the link and let Dan from Plas Gwynant show you how.
Wilderness at Home
Many of you that have been to Plas Gwynant have either completed the John Muir Award or seen our displays around the centre.
It's a brilliant programme that gets young people out in to wild places to discover and explore the great outdoors.
We've created a little John Muir recipe you can try to cook up a bit of "you time" and wilderness right there at home. Read more
Kev's brilliant things to cook with FIRE!
Join Kev from Plas Gwynant as he shows you how to cook 3 classics around a fire:
Climb the Wrekin... in STAIRS!
Fran from Edgmond Hall is challenging people to climb the height of The Wrekin using your staircase.
It's 163 times up & down a standard flight of stairs. That's 33 times per day over 5 days (2 x 8 in the morning and 2 x 8 in the afternoon). Easy!
Here's the Edgmond Hall team; look out for crazy hockey skills, a few pets and a massive banana... And here's the pdf activity sheet!
Play Bird Bingo
Matt & Jo at Frank Chapman Centre are playing Bird Bingo - something you can definitely try at home.
Watch to see which birds come to visit, use the bingo card (above), and maybe even draw the birds too.
I think that might even be one of the Plas Gwynant Home Challenges...
Kev's Lockdown Chicken & Chorizo!
Kev is back and showing us how to cook a simple family favourite with chicken & chorizo.
