If you would like to follow along by doing the activities from the RSK+RIF Activities Day on your own, this is the post for you!

Note that this post is a list of the activity cards; The solutions and spoilers have been saved for a subsequent post!

Original activities format The original design of the activities ☝️

IRL activities card The physical cards for the activities used on the day ☝️

The rules are that these have to be completed sequentially - complete each objective before moving on to the next one. Consider doing this in a group rather than individually. However, if that is not an option, some activities may not 100% work, and you'll need to adapt accordingly (suggestions have been provided inline).

You might notice that some of the cards contain an Easter Egg. These are for doing something more than just the base requirement of the activity. As the name implies, these are not specified in the activity cards, finding them involves some guess work (and luck). All team members need to to complete the basic steps to move on to the next activity, but only one team member needs to - optionally - complete the Easter Egg in order to get the additional points.
