A Girl Power Scrapbook Adventure – Kids Podcast

Welcome to Armchair Adventures, the imaginative travel agency that takes you on journeys of the, you guessed it, imagination!  

In this special Stalybridge kids podcast episode, Connie is asked to sing a song at the local mayor’s Inspirational Women Event, but she needs some self-belief. So, Ada shows her Girl Power Scrapbook!

The scrapbook is a tribute to inspirational local women and holds nostalgic memories. Ada’s decision to digitise the book sparks curiosity and sets the stage for a magical journey.

Connie, Ada, and the listeners venture into the scrapbook using magical affirmations. The first page transports them to the Edwardian era, where they meet Ada Summers, a trailblazer for women’s rights and charitable endeavors. The magical journey continues with Ada’s empowering stories and affirmations.

Connie:        Oooh, what’s an affirmation?

Ada:             They’re short sentences you repeat out loud to help you feel more confident, and this one is my favourite. Why don’t you try it out Connie?

Connie:        Ok here goes: ‘Girls are strong, and girls are clever, look out world ‘cause here we come!’

Ada:             How’s that made you feel Connie?

Connie:        Really good!

The adventure turns unexpectedly as they encounter Stacey Copeland, a pro footballer and boxer. Stacey shares her journey, highlighting the challenges faced by women in sports and the importance of perseverance. Her inspirational words leave a lasting impact on Connie and the gang.

As the adventure unfolds, Uncle Chris unexpectedly arrives to digitise the scrapbook for Ada! The threat of being trapped inside the digital world looms. Connie and the listeners join forces to prevent the book from closing, but will it be enough??

You’ll have to listen to find out!
