Spooky woods, a Wolf Queen, and a rainbow lake!

Welcome to the Big Porridge & Play Online blog, where we share the stories of all the adventures
we’ve had during our virtual play sessions on Zoom! See below for details of how to join.

WOW!!! We had the biggest Saturday session EVER this week, with 27 families and 81 participants! And what a brilliant session it was – featuring funny bunnies and grumpy squirrels, a spooky wood, Mr. Wolf and a magic seed!

Warming up

🐠🐶We started off with our brand new WARM UP, which is filled with animals inspired by you!

A game of Spooky Funky Chicken!

🐔 🦁 🐿️ We then delved deep into a spooky wood where we came up with all kinds of animals for a game of FUNKY CHICKEN! We had: Felicia’s Funny Bunny, Tobiloba’s Scary Dragon, Frankey’s Funny Pig, Ayaan’s Funky Chicken, Loraine’s Angry Snake, Esther Glory and Goodness’s Scary Crocodile, Adesayo’s Angry Gorilla, Princess’s Angry Lion, Marvellous’s Grumpy Squirrel, Sylvia’s Cheeky Monkey, Skye & Marlo’s Funny Fox, Meerab’s Angry Caterpillar, Muizameel’s Angry Dinosaur and Anaya and Ayesha’s Naughty Seagull!

Wowee! Imagine all of these animals popping out from behind a tree in the spooky wood – eeek! So we just had to dress up as these animals, and what fantastic dressing up there was!

Suddenly, Mr. Wolf appeared…

🌲🐺AwOooOoo! We met three wolves in the forest: Wolf Queen, who lived alone in a dark cave, and two sister wolves, Miracle and Michelle, who loved to dance – and lived in a strawberry cake! They were lovely wolves, but we had to run away if they announced that it was… DINNER TIME!

🌱🔮Then, when Tobi was escaping the wolves, she found a yellow Magic Seed in the forest floor. We realised that it would work just like a MAGIC BALL! We blew and blew until it was big enough for us all to climb inside, and we chanted: “Magic Seed, Magic Seed, take us where we want to go!”

We landed and discovered that we were on the moon!

🥪🧀🌈Esther and Glory had brought some cheese sandwiches to give us some energy, and we also decided to eat some of the moon cheese, yum! Muizameel spotted a slide inside a crater, so he led us down the slide and we landed with a SPLASH… right into a rainbow lake!We swam down underwater and there we met Anaya the Rainbow Lady.

🌈🚀Toby had a chat with her and found out that she was inviting us all to go inside her rainbow house! Tobiloba suggested that we should fly there in a Rainbow Rocket that he had found, and luckily knew how to fly, so we all got inside and he and Marvellous drove us in the rocket to the Rainbow Lady’s house!

🏠🌹✨Wow, it was sparkly and smelt like roses, and it was filled with the most beautiful flowers! Suddenly we realised what the time was, we had to get back home! Luckily Frankey found a rainbow car, so we all got in and he drove us speedily back to the Magic Seed!

I can’t wait to see where we end up on next week’s adventure!
