Topic - Kid's climbing workshop

Enty - on 21 Nov 2012
I've been roped into doing a kid's activity workshop on Sunday morning at the village fete.
Last year a guy had them running round cones and doing egg and spoon type rubbish - kids were bored very soon.

So I'm going to do something I'm interested in and try to give them an insight into climbing / mountaineering / bigwalls etc.

We're not allowed to abseil or get them too high off the ground and we don't have access to a climbing wall or anything like that so so far I have come up with the following:

A rope ladder from a tree - belay them up and lower them down.

Rig up my portaledge and let them try to get in a sleeping bag on the ledge.

I have a big rock with cracks in it so let them try to place gear and maybe place a peg.

Have a display with gear - friends - crampons - axes and some cool climbing photos etc

mmmm..... that's about it really. Anyone got any more ides?
