North Pole Get Along Pole

North Pole Get Along Pole

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.

Finally we used an old mirror ball which we taped to the top..

IMG_9797.JPGWith 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…

They took turns choosing a spot to place the pole…

They worked well together and a good amount of calm was restored between them….everyone should own a get along pole….
