Catch Up Meeting 11 April 2008

Hello and welcome back - Cubs starts again this coming Friday 18th April!
We got off to an early start with a Catch-Up programme for a few of the cubs to make sure they were on track.

We arrived early enough to get the fire going for the billy-can cooking. The cubs got their cans ready with a bit of water inside and an egg.
Nearly ready!

We laid a very simple trail using printed footprints. These were laid around the cub hall and these two were shown where the 1st one was........ and off they went. They did very well and found their way "home" again.

Their next task was a simple map and here they are busy drawing their house from a "bird's eye view".

Baloo (aka Ruth) popped over to visit us from Scotland, and helped out with the next Advancement. The children are doing a traditional / rhythmic dance. We also showed them Baloo's dance.

Next on the agenda was "how to save resources" and after explaining a little about what a resouce is and how to save them, they needed to do this little exercise.

Parts of the flag are very important and every Cub should know how to fold a flag and know all the parts. This crossword puzzle helps them to understand the different parts of the flag.

Cubs are taught that it is okay to say 'no' if they feel uncomfortable when confronted by an adult. We teach them 'stranger danger' and here the cubs are playing a little game whereby they have pictures laid out on the floor and the cubs have to match the relevent statement to the picture.

Cubs would not be cubs if there were no knotting!

... and they made beautiful bottle gardens to take home ....

... as well as a vegetable garden..... this one has lavendar and turnips in it...

For First Aid they are shown how to lay a person in the 'recovery position'

and just look at these stunning masks - this is Felix the cat....

and this is Baloo the Bear.
Aren't they just too cute!
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
