Review: Sports Day Set from Brightminds

If you are looking for inspiration for the summer holidays, then look no further than this 'Sports Day Set' from Brightminds. It's the perfect way to keep the kids active throughout the summer months. If you buy it now, you can even give your kids tons of practice in preparation for the school Sports Day.

Sports Day Set contains:

4 x Jumping Sacks
4 x Plastic Spoons & Eggs
4 x Bean Bags
4 x Plastic Stakes
1 x Ankle Straps
1 x Start Line
1 x Finish Line

The children in our street had such a lovely evening with this set, I am sure it will be one that they all look back upon. This morning I was greeted by lots of parents saying what a lovely idea it was to host a little 'Sports Day' on the green. "Organise it" I thought, truth be known, my son took the box outside and soon kids were lining up to take part in sack races and egg and spoon races. There were parents watching from gates at the fun being had by the children. It looked very effective too as they were all hopping along in different brightly coloured sacks. Screams of laughter could be heard as they took part in the three legged race using the ankle straps and tried to keep at each other's pace.

The Sack Race, Egg & Spoon race and the Three Legged race were self-explanatory but we weren't sure what to do with the beanbags. Luckily for us, the Sports Day Set comes with instructions. And the kids enjoyed learning a new game. The Bean Bag Race involves children balancing bean bags on their head without holding on to it with their hands. If the bean bag falls off, that player goes back to the start. The team or player that is the first to complete the number of rounds wins.

All the equipment is great quality so there were no mishaps whilst playing with it, so I am anticipating that this set will last us some time.

Not only were the children having great fun but it brought back fond memories of Sports Day when I was a child. This set could even be a huge advantage if you are trying to get your neighbourhood more 'community friendly.'

Master Craftiness says: "Its awesome being able to have Sports Day whenever I want in my own home. I am hoping by Sports Day in school, all the practice I have had will help me win. And I am really looking forward to using this set a lot over the Summer Holidays. A great set!!!!
