The piece of paper was placed flat inside the plastic bag and everyone had to stick their hand in and without looking at the paper (pretty much impossible to see the paper inside the bag anyway) draw a portrait of one other person in the class.
Then they had to write a short personal message of appreciation for that person under their portrait. Most messages involved the words ‘I ‘- ‘love’ – and ‘you’, which was nice to see! When all the portraits were ready, they were lined up on the table and people had to match each portrait to the person who inspired it!
The second game didn’t have a name nor a lofty message as such, but it was fun nevertheless! Each child was given a balloon. Then they took turn to blow it and let it go in the direction of a ‘target’. The child with the balloon that landed the closest to the ‘target’ was the winner. We had do this a few times as the balloons flew in every and all directions except the target!
By noon our guests started to arrive and it was time for yummy food. We had lollies, chocolate, sausages, salad, fruit, burgers and ice cream.
Thanks to the cook (our usual guitarist) and all those who participated. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
