Everyone was raring to go as soon as they arrived with a fabulous Dance Warm-Up! In this session we went exploring to find out what kind of games everyone likes to play when they’re not at Licketyspit and we got so many games from all of you! It was amazing! Priscilla told us about Hopscotch, Genesis told us about Hide n Seek and we learnt so many different kinds of Tag... There was Chaos Tag, where everyone is ‘it’ and if you Tag someone at the same time you have to do Rock, Paper Scissors to see who’s out Disco Tag where you have to do a dance move if someone tags you and you can only be freed when someone copies you Toilet Tag where [...]

Block 3 Week 5 of Porridge & Play Castlemilk Wednesday 17th August It was so exciting to hear The Ice Cream Has All Gone again this week. This rhyme was created by everyone at Porridge & Play Castlemilk and this week we made up the actions. How divine! Hadir had remembered lots of the words and everyone helped with creating the actions to help us all remember it. We all had different animal actions for going to the zoo, we went on a train and Melissa gave us the Choo Choo move. Hadir had us floating after we’d all been rowing in the boat and then we started to sink!  Yahye had us jumping up and down for Bubblegum & Lime ice cream! We played The Circle Game and Khadar was ‘It’- he was so fast at catching! We talked about how we could make the game even [...]

Block 3 Week 2 of Porridge & Play Cranhill Thursday 11th August A huge thank you to all of our grown-ups for sharing your childhood games and songs with us today. Isn’t it amazing how there are so many similar games across different continents?  Folashade came up first to teach us all how to play Tinko Tinko which is a clapping game you can play in pairs. Each player starts with one hand facing up and we move our other hand from the other person's hand back to your own, saying ‘Tinko, Tinko, Tinko’ and then clapping your hands together with your friends. You get faster and faster and faster. Some of you were moving so quickly we could barely see your hands meet! It was amazing.  Razieyh told us about a game called Six Houses. You draw out six boxes on the ground [...]

Block 3 Week 4 of Porridge & Play Castlemilk Wednesday 10th August We had so much fun at Porridge & Play Castlemilk this week getting to learn more games for our ALLSCOT Playcards which are launching on Saturday 17th September at our Storyplay Festival! We played a new game shared by Sayeda called the Circle Game! In this game you make a circle out of old clothes or scarves. Everyone but 1 person stands in the circle. You can’t leave the circle and you have to avoid getting tagged by the person outside the circle! The circle gets smaller and smaller the less people that are inside it until everyone is outside the circle! We have taggers and those who are tagged, lots of roles and turn taking and everyone gets to be included! As we all know at Licketyspit, games are best played when [...]

Block 3 Week 1 of Porridge & Play Cranhill Thursday 4th August A huge thank you to the families of Porridge & Play Cranhill for coming along and sharing your stories with us! After sharing our delicious meal together we all had a great big dance and then we grabbed our Flying Balloons and started our adventure. We visited Temi, Tiwani, Fikayo & Folashade’s house first. We went into their kitchen and cooked a giant meal of spicy chicken and rice, luckily they had some yoghurt in the fridge as well so Fatima and Effie could eat the chicken without it burning their tongues! After we’d eaten we all sat together and sang some of their favourite songs - everyone joined in singing ‘wind the bobbin up, wind the bobbin up, pull, pull, clap clap clap’. They told us that they love singing rock and [...]

We also discovered that everyone had some fabulous new dance moves in Andre’sDance Warm-up and it felt amazing to give our bodies a good stretch! We were so lucky to find lots of new games as it was the children’s turn to teach us! We were all very excited to play Khadar and Yahey’s ‘Monster’ game, which involved everyone finding a place to hide so they don’t get caught by the monster. Hadir showed us a great circle game called ‘Balls’ where the same amount of balls as participants are placed in the centre on a plate and they all have a number. One by one, each person runs in [...]

Sayeda taught us a great game that she’d played in Pakistan with her friends. She said we needed to draw a circle with chalk and all of us had to stay in it with one leader protecting everyone, while outside the circle, another player had to try to catch us all. If you are caught, you have to [...]

With the excellent help of our Storyplay Champion Arriann we became investigators so we could interview our Grown Ups and see just what they were like when they were children! Before that of course we warmed up with a Dancing Warm Up! We loved it when Adie came to dance with us for a very special Family Art Voyage! We just love Dancing with Adie. So, we danced Licketyspit Style to get our investigating minds ready! The Dancing Warm up works by everyone standing in a circle! We love circles at Licketyspit. Everyone can see you and you can see everyone and games are best [...]
