Recently we suffered some staff shortages and, rather than cancel a session outright, we decided to make a different offer.

I went out and chalked the wall with messages, and left a shoebox full of presents at the centre of where the session would normally be held.


Inside the box was:

  • 1 pack rainbow pom-poms
  • 1 pack rainbow biros
  • 6 mini reporter’s notebooks
  • 1 ball bright red yarn
  • 2 boxes chalks

All wrapped in a piece of blue cloth, so you unfolded it like a gift from an expensive store.


Now we wait and see what happens….
