Popcorn’s summer adventures so far…


There has already been a great response to our Popcorn’s Summer Stay-cation resource! Lots of GB community groups are encouraging their members to join in with the challenges and there are individuals outside of our groups who are getting into the ‘Stay-cation spirit’ too!

This resource offers all children and young people a daily challenge, reflection or activity, and is based on GB’s cuddly mascot Popcorn the guinea pig. The resource aims to promote values like kindness, joy and love, as well as sharing some Bible stories and has been specially written for this period of lockdown easing and people’s plans for the summer being likely to have changed.

Essi with Popcorn and Summer Stay-cation resource

Essi, aged 4, is very excited to have Popcorn staying for the summer! We can’t wait to see what they discover and learn together over the next few weeks.

The leaders at 2nd Plymouth are looking forward to using the resource with their members and have emailed or posted the resource out to all girls in their group. They hope to engage young people in their church who aren’t GB members too by posting the information in their church magazine – what a great idea!

1st Alford member using summer stay-cation Martha, an n:vestigate member at 1st Alford is loving getting stuck into the resource with her unique crocheted Popcorn and a member of 2nd Worcester park found a fantastic list of creatures in her garden on day 1 of the resource!

At 1st Davyhulme GB group, they are still meeting online each week and incorporating Popcorn’s challenges into their activities.

Team Leader Angela says ‘We did the activity for today last night at our weekly zoom meeting. We watched a video about Noah and talked about rainbows being symbols of hope. We then made these rainbow fish together. Can’t wait to see what popcorn gets up to next.’
