Water water everywhere

It cost all of £6, but tonight, as part of Adventure 100, we did water-tasting!
I was kind of surprised it went as well as it did.
But the girls really seemed to enjoy it!
They tried six different waters (you can see them all here); some fizzy, some not, some flavoured, some not.
They each picked a favourite and in each case, tried to guess the flavouring (or not) and the country of origin.

The waters I chose were from Wales, Scotland, England and France. The girls guessed the Caribbean, Africa, Canada and more! We had a wee talk about how much Africa needs water and how very wrong it would be to take their water!

We also talked about pumps (some of these waters involved fundraising for pumps in Africa) and how we can save water - and how we can't: as 90% of our girls live in houses under 10 years old, we already have low flush toilets so can't add water-saving devices, for example, as they use so little water already.

A success, and all for £5.42.

(Adventure 100 running total, highest score is now G with 270 across 9 of 10 areas, lowest is EG with 135 across of 10 areas)

good one! It's hard to cover these topics in a fun way and avoid lectures - sounds like you got it spot on!

Oh I'm glad I came across this - we have the water tasting planned for next week and I was wondering what to talk about with regards to water. I think we might have a go at singing some of the water aid songs too

Great - I love evenings that take little cash.
