in scouts this week we had a fitness thing going on, we took the kids to the park next to the building and seriously those kids are drama queens lol.
ok so not all of them, but some of them where acting like they had never done any sort of exercise in there so far 10 years of life lol, probably too busy sitting on there bottoms all day playing play station tut tut tut.
i hate PlayStation's, whoever invented it should be turned into a computer game and jammed into a PlayStation to be stuck there for many many years collecting dust.
anyway, the aim behind this was to get them to do different fitness activities and write down there timings and what not, later they will have achieved there fitness badge to sew onto there uniforms.
so some of the kids where really excited to be at the park others needed a shot of the good old enthusiasm shove.
different activities where going on in different parts of the park, and i have to say all the leaders took part in running, jumping, falling even (hee hee that was ever the idealist) apart from white african, i didn't do no such thing, i just walked around taking pictures, I'm so good :)they had to run around the park, and some of them really ran like they where being chased by a lion, others preferred to trot like an old pony:
can i just point out that i am not the only blogger that attempts to climb trees, 'ever the idealist' attempted to climb a tree, and she didn't get very far, ever learn from the best hun :)
there was quite alot of sitting down happening, lazy kids tut tut tut:
a good childhood game for me was skipping, i used to skip all the time with skipping rope, so cool, and some of the kids really went for it including ever the idealist, you go girl!!!
she was doing really well until i put my foot in the way (purposely) and it ruined her skipping ha ha ha
other activities included measuring how high they could jump against a tree: measuring how far they can throw a ball:
and the good old long jump
so by the end 0f the hour and a half, they where really tired, thirsty and ready for bed i know i was :)
