The Jungle Book - Mowglis Brothers - 24th July 2009

Welcome back to a full term of fun in the jungle!
Our theme this term is The Jungle Book.....

... and what better game to play than Bagheera's Bones!

Cubs run around whilst Bagheera has his back to them. The cubs try to sneak up to take the food (sweets) and as Bagheera turns around, the cubs have to freeze.

Those caught moving are to sit to one side.

Most of our cubs do not know all the names of the Jungle Book Characters.....

.... so our next game was a relay where they had to match a picture to a name.

I think today was the coldest day here in Benoni so we quickly showed the cubs Baloo's Dance before moving on inside for the next game.

Our next game - creeping through the Jungle -is a favourite of ours and really enjoyed by the leaders and cubs alike! To start with, in full view of the cubs, fresh eggs are placed on the floor together with eggs shells. The cubs are chased outside and blindfolded.
While the cubs are outisde, all the eggs are picked up and in their place we put corn flakes.

Cubs are guided in and -now they think that they are navigating between eggs - guided through the jungle like Bagheera would with Mowgli.

A couple of "careful the eggs", "go left", add to the scene and once they take their blindfolds off, they all have a good laugh!

Our last game was "swinging through the vines" where cubs find a partner and sit down, legs outstretched, feet touching. Cubs sit next to each other with each cub being given a number. A certain number is called and they must run through the legs and around and back to their place.

Till next Time
Keep Cubbing

    Is there any way I could get a copy of the program above including a copy of the games you have used? I have also seen a wolf mask you have made on a previous night could I get a copy of the template for that too?
    It would be very very helpful as I am a stand alone cub leader and new and fun resources would be great
    if so is there an email address I can send my details to?
