Being a Good Citizen - 28th August 2009

Today we learnt about being good citizens!

We started doing the Citizen Badge a few weeks ago, and today we completed a few more parts of it.
Our angels!
We played a lovely game called "defending the president". Each cub had a balloon tied on his shoe with an elastic band. Cubs had to run around trying to pop each other's balloon. The cubs had to try and protect their own Sixer and not allow anyone to pop his balloon.
This was such a quick and easy, fun game to play.

The next part of the badge was to learn about 2 historical places of interest near Benoni. Rikki is fantastic with historical items so he told them about the Voortrekker Monument as well as Dunswart in Benoni. The cubs will now go home and write this up in their little booklet that we made for them.
Baloo told them why we have laws...
The cubs will now go home, complete the badge requirements and make an appointment with the examiner.
A few more games were played and here they learnt how to work as a team!
A cup of water was passed overhead all the way to the back and then all the way forward again. The team with the most water in the cup when it arrives back in the front, is the winner.
Just look at the expressions on these faces!!
One of "my cubs" was invested into scouts tonight - so I stayed behind for the investiture.

Congratulations and wishing you well on your scouting journey to Springbok!

Till next time
Keep Cubbing
