Drawing competition & new Armchair Adventures episode!

The latest Armchair Adventures podcast is even better than normal because it comes with a drawing competition! How exciting is that?! (scroll down for more on that!)

In Episode 4 of Armchair Adventures, Jean tells us all about her favourite hobby – drawing! She really misses her whole family, but lockdown has helped her reignite her passion for art. She’s been drawing loads of pictures of her granddaughter, which has really helped with missing her. Connie loves the thought of it because she’s really missing her cousin Sura. But when Jean suggests that the next adventure should be drawing themed, Connie is a little sceptical. She’s a little worried because she’s not the best artist, but being the good sport she is, she agrees to give it a try.

It’s not about how good you are, it’s about expressing yourself!

The troop uses their bodies to draw, paint and create lots of big colourful designs. They draw the seaside and, using their imagination, jump right into the painting! On the sandy beach, Connie and her customers chat about who they miss most in their families and their qualities, and they incorporate this into their drawings.

Because a person isn't just about how they look!

But when a huge storm hits, they have to work together to get back to safety… Listen to episode 4 of the Armchair Adventures podcast to find out what happens next!
