How to spend a day of laughter in the camp
Anyone who has ever had a rest in children's camp knows very well that there is hardly a day without any competitions, role plays or theatrical performances. Time goes on and the saying "old old" in this context is no longer relevant. It is possible to tell with confidence, because for several generations children raised in the Soviet and post-Soviet space, enjoy playing games like "cops and robbers" and "war games", and having arrived in camp, looking forward to the Day of Neptune, and of course, April fool's Day.
What is April fool's Day?
April fool's day at the camp is a kind of antithesis to Halloween a fun and scary holiday of all kinds pugalok. Jokes, jokes, unusual competitions, which is estimated not savvy and quickness as the ability charming smile and contagious laugh are mandatory, but the children such obyazalovke not even bother. April fool's day at camp is an entertaining game, not only stretching for the whole day, but miraculously has drawn in the process of counselors and educators.
The benefits of laughter
One of the characters is wonderful, but a bit scary tales James Kruse "Tim Thaler, or sold laughter" once said that a variety of explosions, he only recognizes the healthy explosion of children's laughter. Given that in school and at home children only hear "don't fidget" and "be careful", April fool's Day for children, especially in the midst of the summer holidays, was a real gift. This is a great opportunity to escape and relax.
As usually performed the Day of laughter in the camp?
Of course, given that modern children are unlikely to be interesting competitions once their dads and moms, each time you create something different and special. He and April fool's Day. In the camp (the script is usually developed individually by team leaders) are allowed to improvise, that grateful participants perceived on "hurrah".
As a rule, children are divided into two teams, each of which prepares its own emblem. In recent times, given the universal computerization of the younger generation, the incredible popularity of the emoticons, which are a kind of symbol of this funny holiday. The reward for victory in a particular contest quite original, this does not hateful chocolate biscuit bars and candy, and painted konopacki. Not on the faces, of course, although some in the heat manage to put war paint" on yourself and on fellow. Mark put in the logo-the smiley face. Whose smiley face is more freckled, and he won.
Among the competitions I would like to mention those who wear an element of group psychotherapy. We all once were teenagers and remember how many tears have brought us "ugly" noses, teeth, ears or eyes. How many unpleasant moments had to endure in connection with the "funny" name. But the contests "Whose nose better" and "Horns and hoofs" help teenagers to get rid of complexes and to understand that ugly people do not exist, and if you take their real and imaginary external flaws with a sufficient degree of healthy humor, life becomes so much more beautiful.
In short, the Day of laughter in the camp gives children not only a welcome opportunity to have fun, but also to look at ourselves and see their comrades in a different light.
