Bubblegum on my Space Boots - 30th April 2010

Cubbing is fun, fun, fun! Today we put on our space boots and took a trip to the moon!

Our Steam Release game was a quick and easy game whereby all cubs had to run around until the blow of the whhistle and then they had to "moon walk" - slowly and deliberately!

Quite amusing and the pulling of funny faces went along with the huge strides!

Because the cubs were floating in space, Akela had to pull them back into the spaceship!

In relay formation, one cub ran up and had to tie a bowline around him/her, sit down on the chair and the rest of the Six had to haul the cub in.

A lovely game to play whilst teaching them knotting.

A happy cub.

Fun - fun - Fun

It was then on to instruction and the Caracals planted a seed...
We used an egg carton and planted a small seed in each one.

They threw a ball to each other for a few minutes ....

..... and skipped to the fence and back.

The Lions learnt all about Life-Saving...

... and by the look of things the Leopards did First Aid.

Our Astronauts found some very exciting rocks on the moon...

... different shapes and colours ....

A little yarn was next on Neil Armastrong. We decided to play a game first whereby each cub had to actually land on the moon himself to find out more facts.
So each cub, on the go command, had to put on his space boot (plastic packet) run a few paces and put on his space suit (black rubbish bin bag) and continue to the campfire circle with his hands above his head.
On arrival, sit down in the space shuttle.

Once seated, cubs found out who actually was the first man on the moon, the year as well as the name of the space ship and a few other pertinant details.

Whilst in the space shuttle we all looked out those tiny port holes to see what we could see.

Each Six was given a tin with a "port hole" in the lid. They needed to look through and remember what they saw floating in space.

On our return trip to earth we saw lots of satelites flying around!
Cubs sit in a circle and pass the paper place to each other.
As usual a whole lot of fun was had by everyone
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
