Lots of ideas!

Here is a little challenge from Horfield Methodist Church:

so can I leave you all with a little challenge to see if you can do a little thing each day and make a difference somehow – perhaps text/ring/email/write to a family member or take on a little job around the house?

Week 5: This week’s challenge is to…

Produce an A4 advertisement showcasing your skills as a local handyman. Your advert must list at least 5 household, handyman or DIY skills you possess, and photographic evidence is needed of you completing each skill to be able to really sell your services in a local newspaper, noticeboard or website!

Here are some examples of skills you may wish to include:

  • Mend or customise an item of clothing.
  • Cook and serve a two-course meal, for at least four people 
  • Fix a puncture or a dropped chain on a bike.
  • Wash up after a meal
  • Use a washing machine to wash a load of clothes.
  • Iron your uniform shirt.
  • Change a lightbulb, in a ceiling light.
  • Set a heating timer and thermostat
  • Clean a toilet, hob or oven.

The above are only suggestions – you may select additional skills not listed, but please make sure they are of a DIY/household skills nature.

The format of your advert is completely up to you; it can be as factual, funny or informative as you like! This will go towards your Skills Challenge badge…

Week 4

This week’s weekly challenge
This week’s weekly challenge is…
Produce a 3D model of your best or most memorable scouting moment. This may be a fond recreation of your proudest scouting moment, your most memorable camp experience or your favourite scout night!
Your model may be constructed from whatever you happen to have handy; wood, cardboard, Bratz dolls, food – whatever you like!
Imagine your models will be used to promote scouting to someone who’s never done scouts before, so try not to make them too abstract!
As always, we would like plenty of photographic or video evidence of your marvellous creations!
We’re looking forward to this one! Good luck!

Week 2:

Make a film using one of the following four briefs:

  • Your favourite iconic movie scene
  • Condense a blockbuster into less than 1 minute
  • My life in isolation
  • Remake/make a music video

Please make all videos no longer than roughly 1 minute.

To make your film, you can either cast yourself and/or family as the leads, or if you prefer to be the other side of the camera, then you can make a stop-motion video. There’s lots of good apps out there for making stop motion videos; we’ve used ‘stop motion’ and ‘I can animate’ which are both relatively good, and allow you to narrate over the top if you wish!

Other than that, how you interpret the brief is completely up to you! 

Lights, camera, action!

Week 3: 

This week’s weekly challenge is ‘produce a Michelin starred meal’!

Cook a gourmet meal for your household that gives the Ritz a run for it’s money! Treat your diners to a five star dining experience, so as well as exquisite food, you must also create a lovely ambience and provide faultless table service. Remember; your restaurant, your rules! Will the dress code be casual and laid back, or will diners be refused entry if they arrive in jeans?!

Please ensure you send us lots of photographic evidence of your cooking and restaurant set up. We will be awarding prizes to the best efforts, but everyone who takes part will be ticking off valuable sections of badgework.

Scouts: remember, kitchens are dangerous places – and they also need a thoroughly good clean afterwards… Just saying.

Week 1:

Write a poem / limerick / letter all about our wonderful NHS.
