Rainbows at the beach

Another throwback to the summer term.

We’re lucky to live in a seaside town, so I was keen to take the Rainbows to the beach in the summer.

We hired a beach hut that’s owned by a local charity. We didn’t need it – we could have just met straight on the beach – but it was good to have it as a base and as a bit of shelter in case we needed it, and it wasn’t much money for an evening. As it turned out, we had a glorious sunny evening, but the Rainbows enjoyed looking around inside the hut.

It was a fairly unstructured evening. As I remember, we did some hunting for interesting rocks, but apart from that the Rainbows were happy just to dip their feet in the sea (oh yes, we were also lucky it was high tide, otherwise they would have been dipping their feet in mudflats), chase the waves, and sit by the beach hut eating ice lollies. We finished with some games and giving out badges.
