Adventure with Huckleberry

Today it was time to learn all about Huckleberry and Tom! ... as well, of course, about darling Aunt Polly!

Aunt Polly was a stern 'old duck' who took no nonsense from anyone - especially from Tom and Huck!
The cubs dressed up as "Aunty Polly" and the cub with the wig had to chase and catch another cub who then became Aunty Polly.
The cubs loved this - wearing the wig!

Nobody - especially Tom and Huck - wanted Aunt Polly anywhere near.... and we knew that they had these special signs on their bedroom doors!

So we got to work making our very own.

Our 2 New Chums


Keep Out

Tom and Huck had to be very strong to survive the life they led.

So we had to have a special 'pillow fight'

...where we too 3m poles that the cubs had to try and stand on ....

... whilst using their 'pillow' to push the other cub off.

The cubs enjoyed this game and we played it again!

It was time to learn - and here the Cheetahs are learning about the Outdoor Code

We had taken a picture of the Outdoor Code and cut it up into a puzzle.

.... nearly finished ......

..... completed .....

Leopards doing their Instruction

Tom and Huck were regular vistors to the Graveyard.

We read the cubs a wonderful 'graveyard' story (while they were blind-folded) about how they found eyeballs and brains etc. Whilst reading, the leaders passed around items that felt like the real thing!
This is always a hit with the cubs!
If you would like to receive the complete story, please email me.

We had a very special event as well. A 'going-up' for one of our Cubs.

We are going to miss Devin but we know that he will have lots and lots of fun in the Troop.
Good Luck Devin!

I thought I would just add these 2 beautiful pictures that the twins did for Nature Craft. They collected all the items and completed it at home. Thanks Mom for all your dedicated assistance - you have beautiful boys!
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
