Howling wind and lashing rain did not deter our annual pitch-up at this year’s County Show, held at Newark Showground on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th May.
Our activity this year was WORLD RECORD BREAKER CHALLENGES! Children visiting our stand were invited to try their hand at one of a number of challenges, including:
- How much can you fill a plastic tube with dry sand using only a teaspoon in 30 seconds
- How many dice can you stack in a tower in 30 seconds
- How many Hama beads can you separate out by colour in 30 seconds using only chopsticks
- and for younger children, how quickly can you put together Mr Potato Head
Scores were recorded on our “Top Gear” style leader board as children jostled for first position. Some even returned to the stand to defend their score, bringing out their competitive streak! Prizes were awarded to the winners of each category.
All in all it was great fun and helped us forget all about the wind and rain outside!
