Beat the Street

Other

My granddaughters school is doing a challenge called beat the street. It’s all about going outside and finding these boxes on streets in your area then you bleep a special keyring and a card against the box which registers the bleep then you get an hour to find another box. The more bleeps the school gets the more prizes the school wins.

its all about getting the kids out and active. A great idea.

Not sure. I would be afraid the kids will find the rat boxes...

Rat boxes ? We don’t have rat boxes halfway up the lamp post where the grey boxes are !! The kids have a map and it’s designed for the kids and adults to do together.

We had this in our area 2 years ago, it runs for 2 months and then the school that gets the most points at the end wins prizes. They also gave prizes to the kids that gained the most points. The school used to take the kids on walks nearly every day to get points but it got a bit ridiculous in the end. Parents and teachers were cheating to get their kids/school to the top 🀣 People were driving their kids around in the car πŸ™Š

I can see that happening around here. It only started yesterday and already some parents were like possessed animals trying to get to the box by the school πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
