On the 12th Day of Holiday Fun…

Christmas and Holiday time is a great time to create your own instruments! With all the boxes, paper tubes, bells, and shiny ribbon around it’s easy to be creative and make music.

Create a Didgeridoo from paper tubes, or add some beans and toothpicks inside for a rain stick. Use boxes (especially shoe boxes) and rubber bands to make guitars. Tambourines can be made from paper plates and bells. Get creative and show us what you made – even better would be a video of your musical performance!

Each day from December 12 – 24, Yarmouth Recreation will share an activity through our website, Facebook pageInstagramTwitter, and Pinterest.  Join in on your favorite channel.  For every comment about the activity, we will put your name in a draw for a family fun prize pack valued at $100.

Contest closes December 31st at midnight.

On the 11th Day of Holiday Fun…

On the 10th Day of Holiday Fun…

Be a leaping lord, lady or llama! 

One of the favorite games among our day campers is Jump The River where players take turns attempting to scale an ever widening “river” (two other players hold a line and move it away from the jump line).

Another favorite childhood game during stormy weather or early mornings was to take all the cushions off the couch and chairs (and you KNOW at this time of year there are lots of extra decorative pillows!) and make islands all over the floor and jump from one to another while avoiding sharks, lava, and other deadly imaginings.
