We are really missing seeing our EKO Kids each week while the schools are closed and we want to help you continue using your wonderfully creative and kind hearts! Do you remember our EKO rules?
- Look After Yourself
- Look After Each Other
- Look After Nature
Welcome to our new EKO Explorers page where our EKO Leaders will be posting photos and videos of how to do the kind of challenges and activities that we get up to in our EKO sessions in schools and on our Holiday Clubs. Some you can do inside, some you need a window to look out of, some you need a family member to do them with and some will need you to collect and/or spot natural resources from your garden or park as you take your daily hour of exercise. Our EKO Leaders are coming up with lots of different ideas and we would love to hear from you and see photos or videos of what you have made.
Each week our activities and challenges will be posted on this page as well as our Facebook. Twitter and Instagram. We are really excited about the adventures we are going to share together. If you have any particular activity requests or suggestions just get in touch..
For even more ideas, take a look at the links at the bottom of the page to find some great ideas and fun things to do: Our EKO Leaders are actively involved in all of the below organisations and can vouch for the fun and engaging activities that they are suggesting during this time of restricted movement. Why not have a go and send us a photo of what you have made?
If you need ideas for practical hands-on learning activities that are easy to follow, CLOtC have compiled links to fantastic free resources for young people of all ages.
