Woohoo, Strictly Come Dancing is on the television!! Are you watching? Have you got a favourite? I am loving them all and can’t choose a favourite!
My girls completely love it and dance around the living room like two crazy things. I know for a fact that we are not alone! So many of our friends have got children equally obsessed with the show
So that we can encourage viewing of the whole show and not just the dancing (i.e. not talking through the rest of the show!!!!!), last year I cobbled together some score cards. This way I figured they may take the time to listen to the judges comments and scores and to take a moment to think about whether they enjoyed watching the dance or not
This year we have made some new score cards (last year’s only just made it to the end of the series!). They’re not quite as flashy as I had planned but I had left it to the last minute and it was on the television and I had two little people begging for new cards….quick Mum, hurry!
I found some great supplies in the ‘art department’ of our local Tesco… a 10 pack of A4 shiny card and a 10 pack of A5 glittery sticky backed foam – what a find!
I cut the A4 shiny card in half down to A5 size. I traced the numbers onto the reverse of the sticky backed foam and cut the numbers out. Just remember to reverse the numbers before tracing around them (I didn’t forget …promise …ok, maybe just the once …or twice). Then I just stuck the foam numbers centrally on the shiny card, et voila, Strictly Come Dancing Score Cards!
Despite the girls normally giving a 10 to every dance I made up all of the numbers, but saved a little time by only making the one number for the 6 and the 9…what a cheater!
If you fancy making some of your own Strictly Come Dancing (or Dancing with the Stars) Score Cards I have pulled together a pdf with templates for the numbers I used. Not exactly rocket science, but I spent far too long looking for the ‘right’ font so I thought I’d save you some time if you wanted to make some too!
Are you watching Strictly Come Dancing? Unlike me have you managed to choose a favourite?
