Boredom Busters

For those children who are likely to get bored at home, here are some suggestions to help

  • Can we have some pictures and artwork and written work for the web site and Facebook - title 'Being a member of Birmingham Marlins'. There are some examples that William and Poppy have already done on the gallery page
  • Can we have 'what I like about swimming with Birmingham Marlins'
  • Can we have some funny stories 'what happened whilst I was swimming'
  • Have a go at home with this land training session. Please adapt as necessary.
  • Those with rollers can complete roller work for at least 10 minutes every day.
  • Those with hair rollers can curl their hair.
  • Those with stretch cords - use these 10 minutes a day.
  • Watch Youtube to help with flexibility whilst at home
  • You can make some models of the swimming pool - using Lego, Knex, resources such as cardboard boxes, string etc and take a photo and send it to me. There is a photo of Morris Centre pool on the web site under learn to swim.
  • Make a Birmingham Marlins cake (if you can obtain the ingredients) and take a photo before eating it
  • Make a Birmingham Marlins cake (if you can obtain the ingredients) eat it and send us a photo of the crumbs
  • Send me a video of you completing your activities (keep it short)
  • Create a theme song for Birmingham Marlins (keep it short) video yourself singing it and email it across to me. (I cannot upload anything more than around 30 seconds long)
