The sculpture could be made of ordinary material – packaging, newspaper, cardboard boxes, card and so on. The children are divided into two teams, and the aim of the game is the composition of an unusual stable shape, a sculpture that stretches into the air from the discarded materials. stazaTRAIL OF CHALLENGES Age: The theme of this party is a chest that reveals secrets or in which treasure is hidden. After a opening game of introduction the children view the chests from the museum. One by one each child completes tasks from the instructions that are asked of him/her (e.g. “three steps forward, sing song XXX, two steps left …”), and which lead them to the site of the key that will open the treasure chest. In the chest is the “treasure” and a series of riddles and questions to which they answer in the second part of the party.
