Taxi Trip - 27th November 2009

Our theme today was transport on the taxi! and here in Gauteng we have millions of taxis!
Next week we will be having a Sixer Council meeting at the Wimpy in Lakeside with all the Sixers and Seconds.
We gave each Sixer a chance to chat to his Six and find out a little bit more about what they would like to do next term; what games they enjoy playing and perhaps if they could suggest a new game they had never played at cubs before.

We also asked them to discuss an outing.

... and then it was time for fun!

Our steam release was a quick run around.

Just as the taxi drivers here in South Africa have special hand signals for where they are going, our game was based on the same idea.

Rikki gave special signals for North, South, East and West and the kids had to run in those directions.
Oh dear! .. our taxi lost its wheel. We had to roll it to the petrol station to get it repaired

Relay game with cubs rolling the taxi tyre to a certain spot and back.

Great fun.

and a very simply and easy game

Hand Craft.
Each cub got to make his very own taxi.

Templates were printed and cut out before hand

All the cub had to do was fold it along the lines and stick a piece of paper onto the bottom

and the race was on....
Cub took a straw and blew it across the floor

and these little taxis flew across the floor

As this was the last pack meeting at the hall, we had a small party and each cub was given a little gift.

These are 'magic' cups that sing when wet

and today was really extra special as we invested 4 new chums.

Welcome to each and every one of them.

It is always special to have new friends amongst us.

and we know that they will have a wonderful time with us.

We wish them all the best on their scouting journey

with many years of fun .

Remember, this is only the beginning of that wonderful adventure!

and there is still plenty more!

Next week we will meet at the Wimpy in Lakeside at 4.30pm
Sixer Council will start at 4pm sharp!

Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
