Celebrating Soccer - 29th January 2010

We all remembered that we were taking a trip to the soccer stadium today - so we had to get our soccer boots on and the most important was to make sure everyone had their own "vuvuzela"!
Very proud cubs with their home-made vuvuzela!
This one was specially patented - as it has a handle!
As everyone knows, millions of fans are going to be decending on South Africa one of these day and there is going to be mayhem at the airport!
We played a quick steam release game - called "airport shuffle" and then moved on to our next game called "taxi dodge" - you know how the taxi's just drive over, around, under through everything - so we had an obstacle course set up.
Cubs were in 4 teams racing against each other.

.... and the first team to finish and sit down is the winner....

Cubs then arrived at the stadium a bit shaken from the taxi ride but still in good shape to make their own vuvuzela.

These are really easy to make - so if you would like more details, leave me a comment below and I will get back to you.

The cubs really enjoyed making these....

They could colour them in...

The happy soccer fans!!

some of the vuvuzelas....

Caracals learnt about knotting....

Leopards did masks and the jungle dance.

Baloo's dance.

Showing the soccer players how to play real soccer!
Cubs run forward and put their head on the handle of the bat - spin around 3 times and then kick the ball to the goals.

Once completed each cub was given a "winning" sweet.
Team Brazil
Team Argentina

some more soccer!
Cubs pair off and face each other while sitting on the ground. A balloon is given to one side and on go they must throw the soccer ball to their partner and see how long it will last.

2 questions were asked and their first 2 cubs to answer them correctly won the prize soccer boots - well done!

Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
