Dinner at Altitude - 28th September 2012

 Bear Grylls is such an adventurous man!  Do you know that when a friend asked him to break a Guinness World Record and eat dinner with him three and a half miles up in the sky, Bear didn't blink an eye and agreed!  Do you think that would be fun?  Well come along and join us.

 But first, we have travelled around the world with BG and our passports are full!
 Just look at all the countries we have been to.
 Cubs were allowed to take their passports home today as it is the last meeting for the term.
 Steam Release:  Where should we dine?
Cubs run around with one cub being on.  He throws up a ball and calls another cub's name who must catch the ball before it bounces.  He then throws it up and call a name.

 Team Game:  Stuck with you!
Cubs pair up and hold hands.  they must have 1 hand each free.  they then have to go to a table and collect :  1 x paper plate;  2 x crackers knife - and between them they have to butter the cream-cracker.  Then the one cub must feed the other cub the cream cracker.

 Instruction time for the Lions
 The little caracals were learning trails - and they did so well!
We also had some ducks dancing in the lake!

Bear Grylls dished up some awesome food.
Zebra guts and Crocodile cotch!

 The cubs climbed up three and a half miles into the sky on top of the containers in Arrowe Park
 We had some WONDERFUL cub instructors who handled this activity very well and did all the hard work - thank you guys!
 The cubs then had the Bear Grylls special food in containers which they passed to the left for a while and on the blow of the whistle passed to the right as each one was different...... so when the whistle blew for the last time, that is what they landed up with and could eat!

 Being the end of the term, it was all party goodies!

 and everyone had a good time....
 and didn't really want to come down.... but all good things come to an end and it was time to go home!

 Helping everyone down....

 Three musketeers!
We are on holiday now for 1 week.
See you all again on Friday 12th October when we will have our AGM and Prize-Giving.
Till next Time

Brrrr.. it's cold - 21st September 2012

We joined Bear Grylls on an adventure to the Antarctica - it was brrrrr.. cold!
 Steam Release:  Stuck in the Snow.
Cubs run around and the cub who is IT has to touch them.  Once touched, that cub must stand with his legs apart, ready to be freed.
 Yarn:  Sentra the Snow Hound
Relay Races - Sled races - which the cubs loved!
 They have to complete a circuit set out for them.

 ... and as you can see they had great fun!

 Each snowflake that falls is different and here the cubs are making their very own snowflakes!

 It was our Star Pack Evaluation and here our ADC is checking all the files etc!

 Such beautiful snowflakes .... all different!
 and interesting.
 Instruction time saw the new chums learning the Grand Howl
 Leopard made a mask
 Caracals learnt about the jungle
 Lions learnt about interesting places and flags

 and the Cheetahs had a wonderful time doing a scavenger hunt and climbed a few trees.....
 and make a small fire.
 The bears chased the little penguins around!
(Cat and mouse game)
 Almost nothing lives in Antartica but BG brought along some snacks.
Circle Game:  Marshmallow Mystery
Cubs stand in a circle.  They are asked simple questions - what colour is the World Badge?  Where is Akela etc etc.... when the cub gets the answer correct, he can go to the centre and light the candle and toast a marshmallow to put between two marie biscuits and eat.

A fun programme that the cubs enjoyed.
Till next Time
