The Slinky was invented in 1943, so could you incorporate a slinky into your fundraising challenge? Or how about seeing how many steps a slinky can descend in 80 minutes?
Silly putty challenge
Silly putty was discovered 80 years ago, so how about getting the kids involved to see how many activities they can do? They could make snakes, confetti, use it for stamping or make a picture by imprinting beads and paper. Share their creations on social media, tag us in and use hashtag #FFC80.
Crafting is great fun, and also can be a good way to relax and refocus the mind. How about learning a new craft over 80 days, and setting yourself regular goals? You could learn to sew, paint, draw, knit, or try pottery or jewellery-making…the choices are endless! And you could ask for contributions for your pieces, or encourage family and friends to donate once you’ve achieved a goal.
