πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Thursday – Day 7 πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Today is all about getting ready for our VE Day camp! We are thinking about what to take on our camp and practicing a basic camp skill.

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Watch the video of Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret on camp and notice the wartime safety practice they had to do.

⭐️Many families had air raid shelters in their back gardens. Build a shelter either inside or outside, using anything you are allowed to use – (blankets, cushions etc) 
⭐️ Make a list of the things you would need for an overnight in a shelter or at an overnight camp

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§Learn some knots using string or wool or ribbon.
⭐️If you are age 5-7 use ribbon, string or wool to tie around sticks using a bow and leave the ends long like streamers
😍 If you are older than 7 watch this video for the challenges below…https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+tie+basic+knots&oq=how+to+tie+&aqs=chrome.1.69i59l3j69i57j0l4.3676j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#kpvalbx=_Tr6zXr_8DIyCgAaOv7KIBg84
