Unlocking Padlocks Each padlock had a number to 20 written on it. Free the Superheroes At the funky fingers table their task was to free the superheroes who had been tied up threaded. Potion Making Later in the week we also set out potion making ingredients in the mud kitchen, along with some writing frames.
Doubling Salad Another challenge was for the children to make a superhero salad. It was from the Joker to say that he had kidnapped all of the small world superhero characters. The children used a variety of materials outdoors to build their traps… Some of the girls chose to remain indoors and made a trap using the small wooden blocks.
The children absolutely loved this activity and were queuing up to have a turn! They had to pick their favourite ingredient, choose between pieces and then double the portion. We kept it relatively simple with a dark tent, lots of superhero books, torches, writing frames and some craft supplies for costume making.
To say that there was a writing buzz is an understatement. They put one set of ingredients in one side of the plate and then the equivalent amount in the other side, hence calculating the double.
Their task here was to shout out the tricky word and then shoot the baddie with a gun from Poundland. They absolutely loved it as you can see from the photos below… Superhero Role Play We also developed a superhero den indoors.
The children were outraged and I feigned serious distress!
Shoot the Baddies Outside the kids found one of the signs on the side of the shed along with some pictures of various baddies with tricky words superimposed on top. They explained that the red pom poms were bombs — terrifying!
A few of them suggested building a trap to catch the Joker. If the children were able to complete the challenges he would begin to return a few of the superheroes each day. Below are some pictures of the various challenges.
