Children's winter sports entertainment: description, options, event scenario
Winter dictates its own laws. But she is preparing a wonderful gift for us - amazing winter fun for both children and adults!
If during the winter you didn’t fashion at least one tiny snowman, you didn’t build a fortress in the courtyard, an ice hut, you didn’t build a hill, then you can assume that winter was in vain. That’s why all people, without exception, like to try to make something out of the snow in those days when it is sticky.
Such simple winter entertainment today has received quite a strong development. Today, many talented sculptors are engaged in modeling of snow at a quite professional level. There are whole cities carved out of ice, with churches, trees, benches and monuments!
Well, a mere mortal, not very aggravated by the talents of sculptors, you can be content with modeling snow women and fortresses. In schools, youth winter recreation camps and kindergartens it is appropriate to hold competitions for the best construction or sculpture of snow. It is with great pleasure that these winter entertainments are perceived by people of any age. The winners can be presented with a snowman sculpture in miniature made of cotton or wool.
Sports game - "war"
So wonderful fortresses were built, snowballs were made and piled up. Such winter entertainments for children and adolescents, such as the game of war, come into force.
But, if you think well, the trivial version of this fun is a rather dangerous occupation. After all, the "shell" can get in the face. Yes, and the winner is almost impossible to determine. But you can arrange a sports competition with slightly changed rules, in which you will need fortresses, snowballs, and the ability to hit the target.
You just need to check the box inside the fortress. The warriors themselves should not throw snowballs at the enemy, but try to destroy the fortress and knock down the flag of their rivals. You should also make a “continuous line” through which it is impossible to cross. For each team it will be its own forbidden feature.
Metaem snow shells - we have fun, we are very happy!
Children really like the snowballing competition. For such a game it is recommended to put a plywood shield with concentric circles drawn on it with marking of points.
On the sports grounds, where there is a basket for basketball, it is quite possible to arrange the game “basketball ball”. If several groups take part in the competition, you need to tag the shells of each team. For example, “Koloboks” will insert red parts from Lego into their snowballs, “Carlsons” use blue ones, and “Hippo” - yellow ones. Then scoring will be much easier.
Here we go down the hill - hey, take care, downstairs!
It is impossible to describe the winter fun, not mentioning skiing from the hills. This is a favorite activity of children in the cold season. The older generation remembers that earlier it was possible to ride from the mountain either on your own priest, or by laying down a piece of cardboard, plywood, or even a briefcase, well, or on a sled, on your feet. Therefore, these children's winter entertainments often ended in a rather pitiable manner: clothes suffered, shoes were torn, noses were broken, and even arms and legs were broken.
Today, the industry offers consumers special devices for skiing from the mountains: ice-boats of various sizes, shapes and colors, cheesecakes and miniature plastic skis. The safest are the inflatable circles with the bottom, which allow to reduce the force of impact during the jump on the springboard, keep even the smallest and most awkward "passenger" inside, not letting it fall out during the descent.
And the slides themselves, for the most part, do not arise spontaneously, but are made specifically, according to approved drawings, from wood, metal or plastic. In such constructions, everything is thought out to the smallest detail: bumpers along the length of the descent and on the stairs to climb upwards, covered gazebos on the site, pipe-like transitions-labyrinths from one design to another and other devices.
There are two horses that carry me on the ice!
The most fascinating winter games and entertainment are associated with ice skating. These are hockey, speed competitions, and figure skating. On the rinks, you can organize a whole theatrical performance!
And if the presenters will use the costumes of the growth characters, they will play collective games with the children, the event will turn into a real fairy-tale adventure!
To go sledging anyway in the winter - no one will drive the child home!
You can arrange winter sports entertainment with a sled. In addition to the usual skiing from a hill covered with trampled snow, there are other options for their use.
For example, a very interesting competition is “Whose horse is faster?” Or “Sledge race”. Rider and horse take part in it. If adults and children participate in the competition, then there may be several riders. And if only children compete, then there can be several “horses”.
Scenario of winter entertainment "Zarnitsa"
This large-scale event is usually held in places of family recreation. Of the participants who wish to play "Zarnitsa", teams are formed, which can be arbitrarily many. Each of them comes up with a name for itself and selects a distinctive symbol from the ones proposed by the organizer: a hat, a scarf or a jacket of a certain color.
In advance for each group of players you need to think about the route with the end point. This is exactly the place where the flag of this team is hidden. After the latter takes it, she must return to the starting place and hoist the trophy on the flagpole. Whoever does it first gets the prize winner.
At the start, captains get a route list with a plan. Then the team embarks on a journey. It should be in the route list to mark the areas that need to go on skis or drive on a sled. It is also necessary to encrypt the places in which sports equipment is hidden.
And in sports there is a place for a joke.
The event can be very interesting if all the routes cross one point at different times - for example, the hut of Baba Yaga or the Cave of Thieves. Specially trained artists interestingly diversify the competition, demanding from the members of the team to perform any amateur performances or some kind of action: make a fire in the snow, put up a tent, chop firewood. For this, the team receives any item, a “key” or a hint, where you can find, say, skis for making a further journey.
The final stage of the event can be a collective meal, but not in the dining room, but in a wooden old house. The dinner itself can be prepared in the camp kitchen on the street or on a campfire, in front of the children and even with their direct participation.
It should be noted that such winter fun activities for children with adults usually have a lot of positive feedback. In the families that took part in the event, the problem of fathers and children disappears. Spending time together brings family members together.
