Remembering the 5 Senses

Our programme today dealt with our senses!

A few of the Pack.

After Grand Howl and Inspection, we started off with a quick Steam Release game. Cubs are told to run around the jungle and on the blow of the whistle a number is given and cubs must group in this number as quicly as possible.

Instruction today was Woodcraft Trails and we took all the cubs into Arrowe Park where they all made a few signs for Akela to follow.

This way......

Our beautiful Arrowe Park.

Crossing the bridge...

... we have gone this way

near the water ....

..... danger....

..... turn left .....

and eventually we were back at the hall ready for the next game!
The cubs sat in a circle all blindfolded whilst I told them a story
about 2 children waiting for their mom in the car before going to the beach.
Getting bored in the car, Bobby started fidgeting and feeling down the sides of the seats and what did he find! Mushy, slimy gunge! (jelly is passed around for cubs to feel). The story carries on with the children arriving at the beach and them playing in the water (water drops splatted on them) and building sand castles (salt is sprinkled on their legs).
We also went to go and visit Old Joe who lived across the river and whilst wading through this muddy, slimy river we could feel bones - skeleton bones (they feel chicken bones). The mud oozed through their toes and half way up their legs as well before they reached the other side! (custard over thier toes!)...... and so the story continued until they met with old Joe who told them many seaside stories.

Custard on the toes!

Our next Sense Game was for Hearing and Chris had about 13 sounds. Cubs were again blindfolded and had pen and paper to write down the sounds once they had heard all of them.
This one was a door lock openng and locking.
Here he is sliding across the floor and there were many more. Cutting paper - a zip opening - door closing - jar opening - walking - chain falling - clapping hands - ball bounding - two pans banging together.
This was a lovely idea to actually have the sound and not have it on a recorder.
Cubs writing down what they remember!
We invested 3 New Chumbs. Ladies first!
