HEY MRASP-ers! It's Friday and we have some great activities to close out the week. Head over to the Zoom Calendar to sign up for Pokemon Adventure with Josh and Playful Poetry with Charlotte. They are both sure to be a BLAST! On the blog we have a Frisbee Challenge, a MysteryGame, Flying Crafts, and a classic Friday recipe. Let's get started . . .


Frisbee Toss Challenge

Tossed Our Way By Paul


Grade Level: All


Individual or multiple people: Either


Theme: Work on your throwing abilities and your aim with this easy DIY target


Materials: Cardboard box, scissors, frisbee, tape/markers for decoration


Location: Outdoors


Links and resources: https://www.bhg.com/party/birthday/party-games/fun-outdoor-games-for-kids/?slide=slide_d9c1c8e5-4ae8-43c0-b016-09ecb37b4185#slide_d9c1c8e5-4ae8-43c0-b016-09ecb37b4185


Further instructions or accommodations:

To make your target, you will need a cardboard box, a pair of scissors, and some tape or markers to decorate your target.


  1. Cut a rectangular (or any shape you prefer) hole on both sides of your cardboard box. Make sure that each hole is big enough for the frisbee to make it through.

  2. You can decorate your box using markers and tape if you’d like.

  3. Grab a frisbee and test your aim!


If you don’t have a frisbee you can also make your target for any kind of ball or object you have to try and throw it through.

You can simply just have target practice, you can make this into a game with others, or come up with challenges for yourself. The possibilities are endless! I challenge you to stand 10 feet away from the target and make 10 in a row!





Mystery Sock Challenge

Thought Up By Jen


Here's a fun and challenging game for the whole family that will test both your powers of deduction and memory!


Grade Level: All


Individual or multiple people: 2+


Materials:

Long socks

5-10 small objects that will fit inside your sock such as coins, a bottle cap, a puzzle piece, a Lego, or a q-tip


Location: Living Room


Further instructions or accommodations:

The game can be played with teams, where each team assembles the sock for the opposing team, or as individuals, with each player assembling a sock for someone else. However you chose to play, each player gets one minute to stick their hand inside the sock and feel the objects without looking. After the minute is up, they pass the sock to the next member of their team (if playing with teams), and they do the same thing. Team members may not talk to each other about what they are feeling.


When all team members have had their turn, or after one minute if playing individually, the players write down what they think they felt in the sock. If playing with teams, team members may now huddle together to write and discuss what they felt. I generally put a two minute time limit to write down their guesses. At the end you dump out the contents of the sock, and the team or individual to write down the most correct items wins.




Paper Plate Kite

Crafted By Charlotte




Grade Level: k-3


Theme: Project, STEM


Materials:

-paper plate

-markers or paint

-scissors

-hole punch

-string

-yarn

-scrap fabric

-stick or popsicle stick


Location: A large table with space for crafting


Steps:

Assemble your materials! Place the paper plate in front of you and trace the small circle in the middle with a pencil.



Use scissors to cut out the line you just drew. Younger kids might need help from an adult on this step!





Next, take the whole puncher and make three holes in the outer ring of the plate equally spaced out from each other.




Now it’s time to decorate! Use markers or paint to cover both sides of the plate with whatever colors or design comes to mind. If you use paint, make sure to let it dry before moving on to the next step.




Take your string and cut a LONG piece of it. This is going to be the string to fly your kite. Feed it through two of the holes and tie it together so it forms a triangle.



Next, tie the end of the string to a stick or a popsicle stick and wrap the remainder of string around it. This will be your handle.





For the last step, take your piece of yarn and tie it onto the last hole on your plate. This piece doesn’t have to be longer than 1-2 feet. Tie little pieces of scrap fabric to the yarn as a beautiful decoration to see when your kite is flying!



Take your kite out on a windy day and get flying!

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • ½ cup pizza sauce (or marinara)

  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (or substitute with any cheese you like!)

  • ¼ cup mini pepperoni or cooked sausage (you can just cut up the pepperoni-also feel free to add whatever toppings you want-doesn’t have to be meat!)

  • Cupcake tin

  • Olive oil

Location: Kitchen

Further instructions or accommodations:

Who doesn’t like pizza?! Especially in the form of a cupcake? Pizza “cupcakes” are the perfect size for snacking.


  • Start by preheating your oven to 375 then grease your cupcake tin with olive oil.

  • In your bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, seasoning, and salt.

  • Now, whisk in your milk and eggs until combined.

  • Time to add your batter to the cupcake tin! Put about 2 tablespoons of batter in each cupcake.

  • Add your choice of cheese on top of the batter. Your next layer will be sauce, followed by cheese again. Yum!

  • Time for toppings! Add your meat or whatever toppings you prefer. Now, add 2 tablespoons of the remaining batter on top of each cupcake. Your “cupcakes” are ready for the oven!

  • Cook them for about 20-25 minutes, until they’re lightly browned and puffed. Enjoy!
