Quick Activities

Quick ActivitiesThere are times on a visit when you need to fill five minutes but you have no resources to hand. Maybe the coach is late and the children are restless. Perhaps something you planned did not take as long as anticipated. Perhaps
there is a pause before a group can move on to the next activity.

On the whole, children are not good at standing still and waiting. They are full of energy and imagination! Use this to your advantage and introduce these quick activities into your routine so you will always have them to fill those spare minutes if they occur.
