The Owl and the Cubs - 2nd March

Continuing with our theme of Small Animals, today we discovered the beautiful owl.
Jerome and Jonathan discussing the virtues of the owl.

Cubs having fun playing "Owl and Mole"

A relay game we put together where the cubs had to rush forward, collect their food and race back again.
They tried all ways and means to "collect" their food.

On their way there, they had to hop and flap their wings. Some really showed us how it is done!

Next, we played a game that all cubs thoroughly enjoy. We blindfolded them all and made up an exciting animated story about a special owl who had maybe hurt himself or had found a friend that was injured. The cubs then form a picture in their mind and during this time we pass around items that represent what we are talking about. So if we are talking about eye, we pass around either grapes or small tomatoes. Fingers can be represented by vienna sausages.... and so on.
Some more interesting goodies.

A tired cub!
.... and it's on to the next activity. Cubs completed the day's programme by helping Ollie the Owl find his way home through the Maize.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
