News & Stuff to do!

Sign up to the NEWSLETTER  for a regular DOSE OF FUN & GAMES delivered to your inbox.

Hey kids! A big virtual high five from all the instructors here at The Outdoors Project, we miss you!! We'll be back at clubs running around like loons as soon as we can but in the meantime we'll be sending over some fun activities to try out at home indoors or outdoors. Silly games to play, new skills to try or a riddle to solve. You shouldn't need much equipment and most of it can usually be found at home. You can do this by yourself or invite family members to try with you. Always remember to ask permission before you use anything though! 


STAY IN TOUCH. It's important to keep active and creative! If you have any activity ideas you'd like to share, suggestions on what you want to see here, favourite riddles or pictures of what you have been creating that you think will inspire us, we want to know! You might even get a shout out!

Viking Jomswikiger Game

Viking Jomswikiger Game

Hey kids, we’re back in the land of the Vikings! Joel’s favourite time period, I think he is part Viking - his middle name is "Bjorn" and his family used to live in Denmark so it would explain a lot! This time we’re exploring a traditional game played in settlements and camps. It’s a game of patience, skill and involves bit of tracking and stalking.
 
It’s called Jomswikinger – bet you can’t say that out loud ten times in a row!
 
Roughly translated it means “Blind Viking chest touch smash game”. Do we have your attention yet?  Read on ....
 

Native American Stick Game

Native American Stick Game "Lahal"

Native American Stick Game "Lahal"

Hey kids, Let’s learn about a traditional game played throughout tribes of the Southwest Native America’s.

This fun, light hearted game was often played when new tribes met as an ice breaker, traditionally used at funerals as distraction on a sad day or used between tribes to avoid war!

We’re going to craft our own set and then learn the rules to play.

Indoor Den Build

Hey kids here's some wise words from Outdoors Project Leader Joel about today's activity.  "This is a favourite of mine, I love making dens inside. There is no right or wrong way really. You can create something to sleep in, just to chill in to read your favourite book or a fort to hide out from dinosaurs! I always go with the dinosaur option personally!”
