Last Minute Winter Olympics, Pancake Day, Mardi Gras, World Thinking Day...

11th February 2018
We always forget how busy February gets, with holidays and events left right and centre. And of course this February is particularly busy because of the exciting Winter Olympics already taking place in South Korea. So this week we are sending out an early newsletter with some fun last minute Winter Olympics, Pancake Day, Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day activities - and, for guiders, a brand new collection of activities for 2018's World Thinking Day theme - Impact!
