#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 23: Make a scrapbook documenting adventures you have over the Summer holiday

You can design and make your own scrapbook or buy one to create masterpieces on each page!

Scrapbooks are usually 3D as they contain items other than just photographs and text.

You could include: - Tickets for events or transport
- Shells from the beach
- Pressed flowers
- Mini crafted items e.g. flags
- Origami

You could even make a #KCUSummerChallenge scrapbook if you wanted to!

What better way to remember your Summer of 2017!

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 22: Design and make a clock

This may seem like an ambitious challenge but it can be as complicated as you wish to make it!

You might decide that you don't want to make a working clock but you would like to use a paper plate, cardboard and split pins to make a simple "Learn how to tell the time clock"

If you are looking to make a real working clock, there are lots of very exciting designs and ideas online.
To earn the Learning Credits, we would need to see the design for the clock and photographs during the construction as well as some images of the finished product!

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 21: What are your children's hopes and dreams? We would like them to create a vision board highlighting their future aspirations.

We want your children to design a Vision Board that focuses on their hopes and dreams for the future!
Don't worry if you have never heard of a vision/mood board! Our posts today should make everything clear... #Kent #Medway #fun #holiday #challenge #activities #dreams #hopes #vision #aspirations #creativity #visionboard #future #ambition #career #life #love

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 20: Design, write and post a postcard to Kent Children's University

When you are visiting a Learning Destination, anywhere in #Kent or beyond, do send us a postcard to tell us all about your experience there.

We would like to be inundated by postcards from you all and use them to inspire other families to visit the Children's University Learning Destinations!

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 19: Visit a local or national Learning Destination

Learning Destination is the name all Children's University centres give to those organisations and destinations who have been Validated (Quality Assured) by the CU.

We have many Learning Destinations in #Kent and #Medway but this list continues to grow so do let us know where you like visiting with your family.

If you have a Passport to Learning (visit www.kcuchallenges.co.uk for more information) or a temporary Passport, you will discover that each Learning Destination stamps your book with Learning Credits. These Credits have been fixed by Kent Children's University in terms of length.

1 hour of learning = 1 Learning Credit

We are aware that some people will stay longer or for less time at a site but we ensure that all Kent and Medway sites have fixed hours so that it is fair to all involved!

Throughout today we will give you details of where to find information about Learning Destinations, how to secure discounts upon entry and more.

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 18: Take part in a Marine Conservation Society beach clean

We are aware that the dates for these clean-ups are at the end of the Summer Challenge period but we will still accept your evidence for this, after that date!
Throughout today we will share information about the organised beach cleans as well as those that you could organise with family and friends.

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 17: Take part in one of the many KCU Treasure Hunts available

Did you know that there are many free/low cost Treasure Hunts Validated by Children's University?

Did you know that the majority of the trails can be completed in different places across the country?
You don't have to complete the trail in Kent or Medway, you could take part in a trail if on holiday in the UK!

Throughout today we will share details of the Treasure Hunts with you, along with details as to how to collect the Learning Credits!

The trails include: • huntfun.co.uk • Kent in WW1 from Screen South
• Bluewater's Nature Trail
• Essex Children's University Colchester Cultural Trail
• KCU Coloured Plaque Trails

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 14: Carry out a seasonal Science Experiment!

Take advantage of the warm weather, get outside and do some science!
Science experiments are a fun learning activity to do rain or shine!
In this activity we are encouraging you to research and carry out your own science experiment! There are some really simple but fun experiments you can try with things you'll find lying round your house!

So start your research today! The team can't wait to see what experiments you carry out! We will be posting some of our favourite experiments that you can do over the Summer later today!

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 13: Design and make a butterfly feeder

Not only do butterflies bring colour and beauty to the garden, but they do important work by pollinating flowers. Moreover, many species are endangered and so need our help and protection.

Why not provide a little something to attract more of these magical creatures, and reward them for their contribution to your garden?
A butterfly feeder will tick both these boxes, plus many serve as pretty garden ornaments too!

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 12: Make an Anti-Bullying comic for the #bekind campaign

This is a very difficult post for us to write as it deals with a very difficult subject but we hope that your child's comic will help at least one other child.

Further to the information in the image below, we would like to urge you to watch this video with your children then take the This Morning #bekind pledge: https://www.facebook.com/ThisMorning/videos/10155467219187122/
The team from This Morning would also encourage you to watch the following 10 minute video with your children. This video is incredibly upsetting and powerful and you, as parents/carers, need to decide if the nature of the video is appropriate for your child (depending on their age, maturity and disposition). Please watch this 10 minute video alone before deciding whether to show it, or selected sections, to your children: http://www.itv.com/thismorning/hot-topics/pledge-to-share-our-anti-bullying-message
Your children DO NOT need to watch the second video in order to secure the Learning Credits. However, they do need to make a #bekind comic book with a strong anti-bullying message that can shared with schools, families and charities across the country.

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 11: Design and make a sundial
A sundial is a clock that uses the position of the Sun to indicate the time.
Typically a rod casts a shadow upon a plane or surface. On this surface are found markings that indicate the time by the position of the shadow.
There are several types of sundials but we would like you to research, design and test your own.

You can always find Activity Logs at www.kcuchallenges.co.uk under Support Materials to help you evidence completion of this task.

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 10: Write your own story-book

You have the chance to have your story-book shared in a Kent library (Kent Libraries, Registration & Archives) so get writing!
If you would like to support your child in writing their story, why not look at this advice from ReadWriteThink.org:

What To Do

1. Start by reading some favorite stories together. Talk a little bit about each story’s author. If there is information about the author on the book jacket, you might read it together. Help the child understand that the author created or adapted the story and made decisions about what should happen in it.

2. As you read, stop and ask the child to make predictions about what is going to happen next and why he or she thinks so. When you do this, you are encouraging him or her to think about how stories work and how readers understand stories – both important when writing a story of one’s own.

3. While you are reading and when you are done, talk about the different parts of the story, asking questions such as: - What is the beginning of the story? The middle? The end? - Who are the characters? - What do you like about them?
- Where does the story take place? - Is there a problem that occurs in the story? If so, how does it get resolved?
- What do you think about the ending? Is there a connection, either in words or pictures, between the ending and the beginning of the story?

4. Once you’ve read a couple of stories, talk about how the child might make a story that is similar to one of them. For example, if the book he or she especially enjoyed was a story about the first day of school, ask the child to write a story about her first day of school. Or if the story was a fairy tale, suggest that the child write his or her own version. Use the questions you have asked in Step 3 as a guide to help the child plan the story. For example, you might ask the child what will happen at the beginning, middle, and end of his or her story or where the story will take place.

5. If you find that the stories you read aren’t serving as inspiration, you might look for some story starters, which are scenarios or statements that someone else has already come up with.

#KCUSUMMERCHALLENGE ACTIVITY 9: Make fruit and/or vegetable animals

We would like to see how creative you children can be! When they see an apple, which animals do they think of? Could a tomato be turned into an animal?

To receive the credits your children would need to make at least 5 fruit and/or vegetable animals.
