A quiet corner of Yorkshire became the home of the mini version of the Olympic opening ceremony last weekend when a group of 23 children held their own version of the most spectacular show in the world. Flagmakers Director Paul and his daughter Isabella (2 ½) joined in the fun which included a special Flag Making session. The kids were all involved in making their own unique versions of the Union Jack. Red White and Blue were ditched in favour of sparkly sequins and multi coloured crayons.
Once all the flags were made a parade and torch relay round the garden started the fun and instead of the lighting of the Olympic flame it was the barbeque that was lit ready to make hot dogs for all. The Mini Games included all the most prestigious events including the 10m Hurdles, The egg and spoon race and Balancing a bean bag on the head. In the spirit of fair play medals were awarded to everyone and there were Olympic treats and cakes all round.
