Kirstenbosch Gardens Adventure

A fun morning or afternoon. The group will be divided into teams and rotate through the various tasks as follows:

Singing (to take place on the amphitheatre stage) – a Black singer to teach the “click song” – each group to sing for points out of 10.

Beading (to take place on blankets on the lawn) – each participant to make an SA flag in “Zulu Love Letter” style. Local beaders to demonstrate and help. A point for each flag completed in the set time.

Artwork – Each person in the team gets a piece of a picture plus a set of coloured pencils and must reproduce their piece as accurately as possible. The 15 pieces are then put together to make a group picture. The original will be revealed to the groups. The pictures can be taken back & framed as a memento of the day.

Spear throwing (on the open lawn) – Points awarded for accuracy & distance.

Herb Garden – teams get clues to the names of various plants and fill these into a crossword. Highlighted letters in each word are the clue to the final answer, which is to be found in the herb garden. They must locate this plant and give its Latin name. Points for each correct word.

Orienteering – follow directions using a compass, to Lady Anne Barnard’s Bath & retrieve answers to questions en route.

Final – All groups meet back at the amphitheatre and sing their song for the others, then all groups sing it together. The various paintings will be displayed on stage along with the original and the best picture will receive 3 bonus points, the 2nd, 2 points and the third, 1 point. Final points will then be tallied and the winning group announced.
