Enjoy & have fun!

What is the Question?
If the answer is "Once with a fish", what was the question ?
Using only straws and elastic bands, can you build a bridge that is strong enough to carry a weight? How much can it hold?
A game for two players.
Put some coins (or anything you can pick up easily) into piles. It does not matter how many piles and it dos not matter how many things are in each pile, they don't even have to have the same number in each pile.
Take it in turns to remove any number of items from one pile. Whoever takes the last object wins. Can you find a strategy to always win?
How about if you change the rules so that you win if you make your partner pick the last object.
Weekends are something that most people used to always look forward to, a change in routine from school life, a chance to relax, engage in different activities and take things at our own pace. However, in these somewhat unusual times, how can you make sure that weekends are different from week days? Don't forget to email your ideas, I'm sure others would love to hear them.
New Tricks & Skills
Being at home so much can definitely seem like a long time and, with no friends about to play with, it may even get a little boring and seem like time wasted if, when things are back to normal, you have not learnt something new. So, why not learn a new skill? Master the art of keepy uppies; learn how to cook a new dish; perfect your magic tricks; learn how to knit or tie knots; practice taking amazing photographs; if you have a musical instrument, learn a new tune (if not, learn how to whistle) ....the list is endless! It would be great to see what you are doing.
Yesterday, the challenge was to find new countries around the world. Today, learn some new words and phrases in a different language. How many different languages can you say hello, goodbye and thank-you in; could you master five or more? What else can you say in these languages? Could you write in them too?
