Hi Robinson College Offer Holders!

Firstly, congratulations on your offers! We know how hard you’ve had to work to get to this point so very very well done and be proud of yourselves!

Life is a little bit weird at the moment and so we on the RCSA (Robinson College Students’ Association) want to send you all massive virtual hugs and let you know that we’re really looking forward to properly welcoming you to the Robinson family as soon we can. With that in mind we’ve put together a virtual welfare pack to hopefully help you relax, unwind and look after yourselves. 

1. Chill Playlist

Specially crafted for relaxing vibes and chill listening by our very own Robinson DJs Harry, Bradley, Gareth, Sarah, and Sam.

2. 5-Minute Meditation

What it says on the tin. Headphones in, lie back, and let your mind drift away for just 5 minutes. Ahhh.

3. Microwave Mug Cake

This vegan, gluten-free recipe needn't be either, if that's not your vibe. Using store cupboard ingredients, whip up a tasty treat in five minutes.

4. Audiobook

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSLCZSkU6qk&t=2538s

Step into a childhood classic with Roald Dahl's Matilda, read by a random bloke on the internet. You can't have everything, I guess. Whack it on in the background of a craft activity for that extra laid-back feeling.

5. Colouring Sheets

Don't have a printer? Never fear! You can colour these in using Paint (or any other such program).

6. Origami Instructions

https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/easy-origami-crane-instructions-4082282

Recreate Robinson bar decorations in your own home. You don't need proper origami paper- newspaper, writing paper, or even tinfoil if you fancy a challenge, all work!

7. Make-Your-Own Bathbomb

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/how-make-bath-bomb

This does require the slightly funky ingredient of citric acid, but you should be able to pick it up at a pharmacy or large supermarket.

Have fun!

With much love,

RCSA
