Pippi is not only strong and kind, she is also independent, generous, playful, funny, and adventurous. Here are some suggestions on how to have fun with Pippi.
Just think of it, what a lot of great stuff there is lying about in the world, just waiting to be found!
“Don’t step on the floor” course
Set up an obstacle course, using whatever you can find such as rugs and chairs, and leap about in the room without touching the floor.
What can you find that becomes slippery under kids’ feet and makes it possible to slide around singing?
Choose a thing, hide it and ask everybody to search for it. Bird, fish or something in between?
Who doesn’t enjoy kicking up their feet with a bit of polka?
Make your own kite
Make it any way you like, choosing your own colours, and take it out to the field one day when there is a “kite-wind” blowing.
The word game
There are so many words that we haven’t made up yet. Make up your own word and let everyone guess what it means. Suddenly you may have invented a new word.
Play with the ghosts in the attic
The ghosts in the attic can be exciting. Rather kind, but still a bit scary…
Just like Pippi you can make up a quiz with fun questions about freckles, teachers and other important things.
You shouldn’t tell fibs normally, but sometimes it can be a fun thing to try lying so much that your tongue turns blue.
The backwards game
Is there a country where everybody walks backwards? And how hard would that be? Does even the time go backwards if you walk backwards? There’s so much we need to find out…?
Fun with the police
“Wow”, said Pippi. “It must be my lucky day today too. Police constables are my favourites. Next to stewed rhubarb.” With police constables you can have lots of fun, playing tag for example.
Shipwrecks are exciting: pirates, letter-in-a-bottle, desert islands, treasures and gold coins. What are you waiting for?
