Around the World in Bear Gryll's suitcase - 20th July 2012

  Our steam release game saw us running around collecting items to pack in our suitcase!  Items that would be need for a special journey with Bear Grylls.  Next we had to get our passport ready! 
 Cubs made their passports and each week will add another tag to it.  This tag will depict where we have been plus they will be given a "trading card" sticker to stick to their tag in return for an item that can be used by a development pack that will be starting up soon.  So in other words each cub will bring an item such as crayons, pencils, scissors, ropes, glue.  At the end of the term these items will be handed over to the development pack as one of our good turns.
 Next week everyone must bring one tennis ball!

 Passports are completed!
 Bear Grylls knows his knots and we needed to just check that we knew what we were doing....
 Cubs in relay formation, run up and tie a reef knot, take a bean and run back.
 Next cub runs up and unties the knot, takes a bean and runs back.  The idea is that everyone should have a turn to tie the knot as well as untie the knot.

 Time for instruction and the Leopards learnt about Water Creatures - the crocodile!
 Compass work for the Lions
 Kim's game for the Caracals
 Listening hard to the sounds around them...
 Now that we have packed our bags, got our passports in order it was time to find our seats on the plane!
 Music played - cubs run around and find their seat on the plane.  Music stops but 1 chair has been taken away.  Cubs who cannot find chair sit in the middle.

 .... and the winner is!
 Our cubs have worked so hard and quite a number of advancement badges were handed out!
 Well done to all those who achieved both advancement and interest badges.

I do apologise for these "sideways" photos but after downloading these 4 times, I have given up.  I apologise in advance for your stiff neck!

Till next week
Keep Cubbing
