Scotland is a small country with no less than 3 indigenous languages spoken. Click on the link below to have a go at our Languages O’ Scotland activity, learn about the different languages and have a go at learning some basic words and phrases.
1. Attach hook/carabiner so it’s secure to fence or tree etc. (Image 1)
2. Cut string about 4m long (2m each colour if you have) and bring the 2 ends/tails together and tie in an overhand knot. You should now have a large circle of string. (Image 2)
3. Hook the circle into the hook/carabiner. Step backwards until the string is taught. (Image 1)
4. Insert pen/pencil into the loop where you are holding. (Image 3 & 4)
5. Keeping the string tight in one hand, use the other hand to twist the pencil clockwise. (Image 5)
6. You will notice the string starting to twist together. DON’T LET THE STRING GO SLACK! (Image 6)
7. Keep winding, when the string feels very twisted you can test to see that it is tight enough by carefully reducing the tension. If it looks like it’d going to for a little knot on it’s own, it’s ready! If not wind some more and repeat as above.Go up to the half way mark with one hand, keep your string nice and tight. Hook the pencil end around the hook which divides the length of string into 2. Pull back with the pencil hand which will pull the other hand forward and you should now have 3 pieces all the same length. Watch the short video on folding the rope and ‘untwisting’.
8. KEEP THE STRING TIGHT. Turn the pencil anti-clockwise this time until tight again. Give a bit of a pull to ‘set the rope’.
9. Take 2 small pieces of string and tie just above the pencil and just below the hook to secure. (Image 7)
10. Remove pencil and rope from the hook and cut the ends off. (Image 8)
Share your finished rope (or any funny mishaps) on social media using the hashtag #BlairEverywhere
Join us in reducing the loneliness and improving the wellbeing of people in care homes as we collectively carry out 10,000 acts of kindness.
Care homes have been hit incredibly hard by the current global pandemic, from residents falling ill to being separated from their loved ones. Our young people have told us that they usually help care homes throughout the year and that the current crisis shouldn’t stop that from happening.
You could make kindness rocks, write letters or draw pictures, make videos or share skills.
