Intro[edit | edit source]

Being a kid is about having a sense of awe and wonder. It's about being able to see things as they are, without any prejudices that people pick up through life.

Things To Do[edit | edit source]

Here are some fun things to do that are best done with friends who are completely stressed.

Play With Food[edit | edit source]

Get some toast and add food colouring and vanilla extract. Cut a carrot into sticks and build a model with them, sticking them together with chocolate spread. Make the biggest sandwich the world has ever seen. You'll only do it once - doing it twice ruins it - so it doesn't matter if it rots your teeth or makes you sick.

Look At The Clouds[edit | edit source]

Lie down on the ground and look up. Figure out what each cloud is, then make up ridiculous stories about them. Go bananas.

Look At The Sky[edit | edit source]

On a clear night, see how many stars you can see. Sure, find the real constellations, but they'll never be as good as the ones you make up.

Make A Dust Ball[edit | edit source]

Collect fluff. Computers are good for it, as well as the places that don't get dusted properly.

Lesson Objective[edit | edit source]

  1. Have a laugh. Or a smile, at least.
  2. Get your imagination going.
