Irene and friends ran an eccentric stall at the school fete yesterday that only could have been thought of by Irene– & it was!
Irene is still on a high after all the wild and wacky games she devised for her school fete stall worked. Retrieve your challenge–on a plastic card–from a tub of jelly, whipped cream, & ice : challenges like eat all the Quality Streets you can in 1 min.
Having a stall was optional this year and I wasn’t keen. But she was.
It’s important to let children organize things!Organizing things lets children see the transition from ideas, dreaming and inspiration to reality, and makes them detail-focused and organized. Useful whether running a business, decorating, organizing a party, event, or cooking. Yay for Irene.
Just 2 years ago, I went around with her, fondly calling her Baby Doll, secretly slipping extra money into her purse as she ran low, and smiling as she showed off about her budgeting skills and how much she could buy with her savings–£ 2. How she’s grown!
