Friday 3rd June 'This has been the best day of my whole life!' – Alan We got to explore a grand Loch when visiting Balloch Castle Country Park! We loved showing Mary-Anne the Storyplay way and met some exciting sea creatures along the way. We started off our great adventure meeting Jim the bus driver! Jim drives coaches and was excited to show us how big and long and comfy his bus was! It was so exciting taking a coach to a new place, we talked about what we would see and what we would do at Balloch. On the bus we played some of our favourite games, such as: Do this, Do That, Jelly on His Head and Grandma Grandma. Once we got off the bus we met Mary-Anne!

Remember the Magic Cup we found in one of our Magic Ball adventures? Jared had it with him so we all took a sip and …the Castlemilk Giants climbed up the beautiful huge staircase and found Ruth, who works at the Hunterian Museum! Inside the astonishing Glasgow University buildings there are many fantastic places but perhaps one of the most interesting ones is the Hunterian Museum. Our Castlemilk pals together with Andre & Rhianne arrived at Glasgow University to meet Taz & Ruby who had Jack’s Magic Map with them ready to guide us through more exciting adventures. We followed Jack’s Magic Map to walk through the archway to the Big Staircase to find Ruth who knows everything about the [...]

A Super Cake & Electricity Bolt!!

2022-06-10T11:43:12+00:00

Welcome to the Big Porridge & Play Online blog where we share our stories and adventures! Friday 27th May This week was all about… chefs! Football chefs, Zuper chefs and Superhero chefs all joined forces to make a fantastic CAKE!!! And what a cake it was. I will share the recipe with you now. OUR SUPER CAKE RECIPE: INGREDIENTS: For the cake:  Runny milk chocolate Strawberries Salt and vinegar noodles Electricity bolt Love Berries Pepperoni and corn pizza Sweets For the topping: Spicy powder Tangerine slices Icing Sprinkles To catch the electricity bolt the Zuper Hero Chef guided us through. We had to run outside and think of something sad, and if we all threw the sadness into the air at the same time it would evaporate and transform into an electricity bolt! We had to quickly catch and hold it with all of our strength before throwing it into the cake bowl! Why don’t you give it a go? The cake was rather spicy but very delicious and we washed it down with a glass of milk! We each took a bite of the electricity bolt and our bodies started bouncing uncontrollably, filled to the brim with energy and excitement. We bounced and bounced until we could bounce no more, and after that we all felt great! Next time you’re playing why don’t you [...]

Our session started with a quick walk from Churchy to go to the Glasgow Women’s Library because that’s how close this wonderful library is! We started off by singing Jelly on His Head and Grandma Grandma! Saba and Colleen were chatting away on the way to the library and were talking about how much they look forward to the sessions. It was so much fun to sing Grandma Grandma as loud as we could in the middle of Bridgeton. ‘I feel like I have a community it’s really nice! We think differently too and our adventures [...]

It was a lovely afternoon and we merrily walked using Jack’s Magic Map to guide us into the heart of Castlemilk Park. With Jared’s help we were able to find Park Ranger Stuart! Stuart told us to follow him, to be careful with our steps as the woods have bumpy grounds and to keep our eyes and ears at the ready, for the woods do have many creatures and interesting wildlife for everyone to enjoy. Stuart had even set up a wee [...]

We had so much fun coming together again to play from all over Glasgow! We played Miss Mary Mac, Big as a Bear, Funky Chicken, Dressing Up, and Magic Ball! It was so much fun using our imaginations, remembering in our imaginations we can go anywhere, be anyone and do anything! It was great to see so many of our friends again after so long. We also welcomed a new family! We’d like to say a big Licketyspit welcome to Sarah, Stella and Joy! We all love a good song and rhyme at Licketyspit! So, we started off with Miss Mary Mac! Seeing everyone saying the words and doing the actions in our boxes together helped me feel really connected. Saif & Fateh even said "I love this. It is so much fun, " which is what we love to hear! Having 35 of you all joining in with the fun and games at our first session was amazing and really shows how our Licketyspit family champion play! Playing games online is a little different to playing in person, but we have just as much fun. It also means we get to play with others who wouldn’t always [...]
