We called this one ‘Mix Tape & Chill’. Each kiddo sent a list of 5 songs to our fantastic organizers, which were put into a playlist on YouTube to play during the event. All the kids were given a paper with the songs, and tried to match the song to the person who picked it. The person with the most correct matches won a GameStop gift card. Everyone brought games and snacks, and they spent a pretty low-key afternoon socializing.
The theme for the day was ‘games people play’, and they spent the afternoon doing just that, from video games, to ‘lines and blobs‘, to the pantyhose bowling game, and wrapping up with LARP style sword-fighting, which ended up paving the way to planning a LARP-based homeschool PE discussion in our group’s discussion list for later this month.
