I'm Charlie and I'm going to be hangin' out on the CF Kids Page for a while.
If you want to be my friend you can join me here whenever you want.
I have found a few great things the we can do together. Let me know if you have any ideas for other great things that we can do, or that we can tell my friends about.
Caroline, at CF National Office, is one of my friends so you can tell her and she will pass it on to me. You can get hold of us at email@example.com
Even though I like to get out and about on my skateboard, I also like to do lots of other things like sports, eating, and playing at all sorts of activities.
We made the BIGGEST bubbles,
bigger than my head,
bigger than the cat,
bigger than ...
We even managed to get one bubble inside another!
Here's how we did it ....
How big a bubble can you get?
Send me photo to win a prize!
PS. You will need a friend to help you get one bubble inside another. Give it a go and see what masterpieces you can make.
Another cool trick is to blow bubbles in a dark room and then shine a torch on them. They glow really neat colours!
I've had sooOOOooo much FUN! these school holidays. Last week we went to Adrenalin Forest. If you are anywhere near Christchurch or Wellington you should go try it!
Boy! it can make your knees wobble a bit. You wear a climbing harness and climb over all sorts of obstacle courses high up in the trees. And then to get down you fly really fast down a flying fox. COOOOOL !!!
You start off low to the ground on nets and stuff until you get the feel for it and then you are up and away.
Here are some pictures of my friends and me.

Another thing we did these holidays was to go the the beach. The sun, the sea, the surf, the sandcastles . . .
We made castles like this one. It's easy to do.
Simply dribble the wet sand out of your hand onto the top of the pile, each handful sets before the next one goes on and that makes it knobbly.
Sam and Celeste made this neat starfish, and covered him with shells.
Have you got any pictures of sandcastles you have made?
Send them in to Caroline and we will add them to our gallery.
Have you tried surfing?
I really REALLY want to give it a go.
Is it easy? Can you tell me a bit about it?
When you want something yummy, it's only a few minutes away when you can cook it yourself.
Here are some recipes that might like to try, most of them you can manage yourself, but you had better have Mum or Dad keep an eye on you the first time you try them ... just in case .....
Easy Macaroni Cheese
What you need:
1½ cups macaroni pasta (dry)
1 can Wattie’s Bacon & Cheese Potato Bake Sauce
1 cup milk
1 cup grated cheese
What to do:
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (you might want to get Mum or Dad to help!)
Put 1½ litres of water in a pot and boil it
Tip in the pasta and let it boil until the pasta is softish. Not hard and crunchy, but not gluey either
Drain the pasta in a sieve. Put the pasta in the oven dish
Mix the can of sauce and the milk together and pour over the pasta. Give it a bit of a stir.
Spread the cheese over the top and then put it in the oven for 30 minutes.
BE CAREFUL getting the dish out of the oven as it will be HOT!!! and heavy!
PS this makes enough for four people, so if you want it only for yourself you could put it in smaller dishes and put the others in the fridge or freezer for later. Reheat it in the microwave when you ‘need the cheese’
I KNOW all you guys are cool, but we have to let the others know just HOW cool you are!
Send me a photo of you doing what you love to do, and tell us a bit about it, as well as your name and age, and we will put you on our STAR for a Month!
My star for this month is my mate Caroline. She has been helping us out by raising funds for CF. She has just finished doing the Crusaders Charity Cricket here in Christchurch, and we all had a great time at the game. That's her on the left with one of the cricket teams.
We all know that sports are FUN, and that sport is good for us. But I want to see the sporty things you get up to.
Please send me pictures and stories about the sporty things you do, if you win or lose, achieve a personal best or just do it because you enjoy it. I would love to see you in action.
My HEROS for this month are are the Ironman athletes who raise funds for Breath4CF at Ironman each year.
Here are a couple of pictures of athletes as they finished last year's race.
Did you know that they swim 3.8 km and then bike 180 km and THEN run 42.2 km That's 226 km ! WHEW! I'm tired just thinking about it.
Hey !! Did you know that we are going to the IRONMAN again this year? Are you going to watch?
Let me know and I would like to meet you there. We do all sorts of neat things, sell balloons, yummy chocolate fish, make posters for the athletes, and have lots of fun for the week.
