All Aboard! - 9th October 2009

Our theme this term is TRANSPORTATION..
and in order to see where our boat was destined for, we started off with a quick Steam Release of NSEW
The cubs made their own little boat - very cute, quick and easy.

A new chum.

Completed boats - ready for sailing

All that is needed is:
Paper Sail
Paper clip
Small Sinker

We have started our new cub programme, so here we have the Caracals doing instruction. They learnt their Promise today.

The Leopards learnt how to re-wire a plug.

while the Cheethas coloured in the South African flag.

Cubs just being cubs!

We finished off with a relay game after explaining the concept of "imagination" to the cubs. They needed to imagine that these coloured pieces of wood were actually cut out in the shapes of boats and not frogs!

The cubs had great fun with this game and raced the boats from one side to the other.

This is a lovely game and a nice "filler" as well.

Shapes are cut out - in this case the frog - and a tiny hole is drilled at the top for a piece of string to be threaded through.
One end of the string is tied to an immovable object and the cub holds the other end of the string and "walks" the frog to him.
Our first meeting back was a huge success with cubs bursting with energy.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
