Kids Corner

Make your own money box

Gymnasts were given a ‘make your own money box’ which they then had to construct.

Gymnasts then filled their decorated money boxes and returned them to their coach.

The winner of challenge 1 was… Issy MacDonald

Smarties Tube Challenge

Gymnasts were given a packet of smarties – the smarties were eaten and the tubes were filled with 20p’s and handed back to the coaching team.

The winner of challenge 2 was… Kira Dunn
