Missing your cousins? Us too! Here’s some fun activities you can do to challenge your cousins while you’re apart.

Organise an extended family online video chat with a weekly challenge for the cousins. Ideas include:

  • Build a robot from recycled materials, show it to the family
  • Each cousin is assigned another cousin – create a portrait of the cousin you’ve been assigned, ready to show at the weekly meeting. Before you begin, why not get a quick lesson in drawing faces from Ben Quilty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XsTkEXr2qo
  • Bake something ready for the meeting – show off and review your cooking

If you don’t have a cousin or they are too old or too young, you try this with any friend or family member.

Thank you Mr McClintock, Head of Junior School, for these fun cousin-challenging activities.
