Elsworth Pre-School Paddington Challenge!
Children from Elsworth Pre-School are using their daily exercise distance total to get to Paddington station and back - a combined distance of 200km!
The aim is for families to record the distance they've walked or cycled each week, giving little ones the incentive to do longer walks and make the most of their daily time outdoors. We'll track on a map each week how close we get to Paddington and back.
Without being able to run the usual fundraising events the Pre-School relies on, we still need fundraising to support the Pre-School's future survival during this time. We hope families will enjoy the group challenge and raise funds for the Pre-School. Paddington teddies and marmalade sandwiches optional!

Create, Hide & Hunt Painted Pebbles in Elsworth
**Rocks may be still out there, if you find one please put them out of reach of children and wash hands after thank you!
We hope this will to resume this when safe. Why not paint pebbles to hide around your garden or house?
Create your own pebble to hide round the village at home or just join the hunt for pebbles in Elsworth. You can post a photo of your pebble and any you find to our Facebook page Elsworth Rocks
Please don't hide pebbles on farmland or on sports fields, happy hunting!
If you find a pebble, photograph it, post it on Facebook if you'd like then hide it again.
How to create your own pebble:
1. Get a pebble
2. Paint your pebble (we used acrylic paint)
3. Waterproof your pebble (we used this gloss spray)
4. Write Elsworth Rocks in permanent marker on the back
5. Hide your rock
An internet search will give you lots of other ideas for paint types, waterproofing and inspiration of what to paint!
