After arguing, griping, groaning, picking, prodding, sniping & bickering with each other for 24 hours I decided it was about time the kids learnt a few lessons in getting along, teamwork, helping hands & working together.
We achieved this with a carpet role tube we had found discarded on the roadside for the bin men to collect.
See more of our Magical Christmas Traditions and Fun!
So the preteens set about transforming the tube into a North Pole sign….mutually agreed.
They covered the tube with white paper and strips of red paper..they used a piece of card to make The North Pole arrow..
Finally we used an old mirror ball which we taped to the top..
With our pole made we set out to find somewhere to stand it…it was their mission to use teamwork to carry it together.
So we headed to a hill in the middle of the forest.
Here’s how we got on…
Mila was responsible for carrying the sign that we’d attach to the pole.
They worked well together and collapsed in a heap at the top.
They took turns choosing a spot to place the pole…
and finally they agreed on a spot… mutually.
We spent some time absorbing the falling sun.
Before we headed back down…using teamwork….
and getting along as we went 🙂
They worked well together and a good amount of calm was restored between them….everyone should own a get along pole….
