Shaun the Sheep: Championsheeps LIVE!
Thursday 19 April 2012
Shaun the Sheep and friends are hosting a sports day with a difference at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo this summer.
From June 2 to 10, Championsheeps LIVE! will transform the main lawn into a baa-rilliant farmyard filled with sporting challenges for the whole family to enjoy, including the Naughty Pig Sack Race, Cabbage Keepie Uppie and Get Fit with the Flock - a mass participation session of hula hooping, aerobics and line dancing!
So what are you waiting for? Round up your flock and get down to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo for an array of fun farmyard themed activities.
Ewe could become a Championsheep and take part in one of the many challenges running throughout the day...
Shirley’s Pie-athlon: race a Shirley-shaped sheep hopper while trying not to drop the piece of cake you’re carrying. Don’t forget to avoid the ‘healthy’ fruit obstacles!
Free Range: Lift the chickens and see what you find: if it’s a chick, take it back to the safety of the henhouse; if it’s an egg, balance it on your wooden spoon and take it to the basket.
Farmyard Fling: The Farmer is keeping an eye on everyone with his three ‘farmer scarecrows’. Try knocking their vegetable heads off by throwing wellie boots.
Cabbage Keepie Uppie: Try to keep the Farmer’s prize cabbages up and out of the mud, so that he can take them to market.
Get Fit with the Flock: Get involved in a mass participation session of hula hooping, aerobics and line dancing!
Naughty Pigs Sack Race: Dress up as a Naughty Pig and race to prove you're the fastest porker in the yard!
Flock 'n' Roll: You’ll work in teams to roll a giant Shirley around the obstacle course. The first team to push their Shirley in the bath wins!
Sheep Shape: A large clay modelling station where you can add to our growing farmyard scene. Please note: there will be limited spaces available for this activity due to table space.
Best of all Championsheeps LIVE! is included in the cost of admission to the Zoo.
We are expecting to be Baar-riliantly busy as the crowds flock to visit Shaun the Sheep... due to this please note that each activity will be running throughout the day on a first come first served basis.
Fun and Games!
