Fear Factor - 25 January 2008

Our bunch of angels! .... but they did not know what was in store for them!
Our first game - a steam release game - was one where horrific and fearful pictures were scattered around the area. These were cut in half. The Pack was divided up into pairs and and handed one picture. They then had to go and search for the missing half. First one back to "face their fear" won a reward.

Nishlan and Mitch found their matching pieces!

Straight into Instruction and here we have a New Chum learning all about Baden-Powell.

Our Lions did their knotting.

We have 2 Cubs who are doing their Leaping Wolf Advancement at the moment and they learnt about the Outdoor Code

Our Leopards practised their skipping and climbed the lovely trees we have in the grounds of the Scout Hall.

We blindfolded all the cubs and set the scene.
Roger had not been lucky enough to go on holiday this year. All his friends had left him behind and he was home alone. His mom and dad had gone out to play bridge and he sat reading by the lamp light. It was 9pm and everyone and everything in the neighbourhood was still.
Roger decided a walk would be good - a walk to the graveyard. Crreeaaakk, went the big wrought iron gate, as he gently opened it. Roger's heart was beating so hard he thought someone was banging on his head! He was so frightening but he carried on walking. He could see all the gravestones, tall and white.
A black cat darted across his path - Roger let out a scream "Heeeellllppp" This was so exciting for Roger and he moved gingerly on. He heard an owl hoot way up above in the trees and as he took his next step, he felt himself falling. Roger had fallen into an open grave!
"Oh no" screamed Roger " this grave still has a body in it - get me out here"
(As you are telling the story, different body parts are passed aroung for the cubs to feel)
Roger gently sat up and in doing so, felt a bone or two. (use any meat bone that has been cleaned thoroughly). "Oh how gross" Roger said. As he moved around to get a better understanding of where he was, he felt something stringy and wet - oh no! it was the dead man's brains (cooked spaghetti).. Roger did not know what to do and while trying to push the brains back into the man's head he could feel the eyes popping out of the mans head!
(grapes covered with vaseline).
What was he going to do?

Brains and eyeballs!

We then had 4 bases with different disgusting items that the Teams had to eat. "Bones" were awarded to everyone who managed to eat the item.
This is baby poo in a nappy!

Some of the cubs did not mind eating the poo ! (peanut butter)

Fancy Lemons Slices...
We also had a base of slimy worms - these looked absolutely disgusting but actually were long pieces of cooked spaghetti which had been coloured in red and black!

..... while Roger was sitting thinking in the grave that he had fallen into, he realised that he was suddenly starving. What was he going to eat? ...... any suggestions?
Roger found something rather delicious - a bunch of broken fingers which he sat back and enjoyed!
I managed to get a few from Roger and the Cubs seemed to enjoy them as well!

Recipe for Bunch of Broken Fingers
125g margerine
125 g sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking power
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Mix together the margerine, sugar and egg. Add the vanilla essence. Gently add in the flour, little bit at a time together with the baking power and salt. The mixture must be quite firm. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes or more.
Take a bit of dough and roll into a finger shape. Put an almond in for a nail and shape the finger as seen in the picture. Use a knife to make indents for wrinkles.
Cook at 170 degrees for about 25 minutes or until brown.
You can add red food colouring for "blood"
This makes a rather delicious, sweet and crisp biscuit!
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
