Look Akela - no hands!

We ran our pack meeting and no-one was allowed to use their hands! Do you know how difficult this is?
We scattered the playing field with paper balls and the cubs, in relay formation, had to collect as many paper balls as possible, deposit them in their respective buckets - of course, without using their hands!

It is not as easy as it seems....

Go girl go...

Well done - keep going ...

.... and the winner was the Yellow Six (Girls Six) who collected the most.

Our next game was fun, fun, fun!

Plain doughnuts were strung up across the hall....

..... and the cubs were lined up in relay formation again and each cub had to come forward - hands behind their backs - and eat a doughnut until it was off the string.

They then ran back to their Six and the next cub came forward.

Ready for the next bite!

Mmmmm - delicious!

Too sweet for words!
Of course, they loved this game and wanted to do it again. Needless to say we did not have any more doughnuts!

Our next game was "pass the orange" which, I am sure you will agree with me, is not the easiest thing to do!

A few hands got in the way!

..... some managed to get it right.....

..... and did it pretty well .....

...... and some had a few mishaps!.....

The instruction for the Leaping Wolves was easy yet the cubs were quite reluctant to get going! They had to write an article.

...... nothing difficult ......

And then we had the opportunity to invest 2 new chums.

Welcome to them both.

Saluting the Pack - afterwhich the Pack gave her a great big "woof"

Investing Liam.

Mom putting on his cap.

Saluting the Pack - and he was also given a welcome "woof"

I thought I would just add these as well. The Leaping Wolves have to do a Display of the knots they have learnt throughout their cubbing career.

Here is one of them.

...... and this is the other one.

Aren't they stunning?

See you all next week
Till then
Keep Cubbing

  1. Hi!
    I came across your blog through the FF blogroll. The word "Akela" captured my eyes, so here I am.
    I so much enjoyed looking around your blog! It reminded me of my former Cub Scouter and Akela's days! Happy Hunting!
