Today was our last pack meeting for the term!
We had lots of fun being ogres and eating green and smelly food!
Ogres are so smelly and scary so all the villagers are scared of them. Let's to and catch some villagers!
Steam Release: Ogres and Villagers
Two cubs are selected as Ogres. They run around catching the villagers. When everyone is caught, 2 new ogres are selected.
(I love this photo - true friendship)
Ogres have to build their own homes - let's see how well you can build ogre homes of your own.
Relay race - Ogre home building
Cubs line up inn sixes. They each receive 8 cards. The first cub runs up and builds a card house. As soon as he is done and it stands then he runs back and the next cubs runs up. The first six to all complete the ogre home wins.
Building homes is hungry work - let's join Shrek for supper
Kim's Game: Shrek's supper
cubs are blindfolded to listen to the yarn
One afternoon Shrek felt really hungry so he decided to make himself his favourite supper. He went out into his swamp to find all the ingredients. First he went to the damp log to find some grubs. He squeezed the grubs to make his favourite smoothie. But first he ate one to make sure it tasted juicy (sour worms). He filled his bottle and walked over to the slimmy pool. There he gathered all the frogs he could find. He them started to pull all the warts off the frogs (rice crispies) - these he put into his bag for the frog wart buns he was going to make. Shrek then saw the big green mushroom growing under the log. They were nice and dry - just how he liked them. He gathered them up for his mushroom chips (marie biscuit).
Shrek wondered into the woods to find some large caterpillars. He found them on the big green tree. He realized that this was a great prize and these would be superb in the pan and they would go well with his mushroom chips. (marshmallows).
Shrek now had to find dessert so he found some smelly pond slime moose (jelly). Shrek wondered off home and made his delicious dinner. He worked very hard and made the smoothie from the grubs (strawberry milk); frog wart buns (piece of bread with marmite on); mushroom chips with caterpillars which he fried and added lots of salt (salt and vinegar chips and piece of liquorice); His dessert was the best ever - slime from the pond (chocolate moose).
Shrek was ready.. he pulled a piece of wax from his ear for his candle and enjoyed a great supper!
A special good bye to Caelyn who leaves us today for her time in Australia - good luck and keep in touch!
Time to turn into Ogres
Handcraft: Cubs made their own masks.
Just before investing some new chums we quickly played one of the Cubs favourite games - Cat and Mouse but for our game we called it "Ogre and Villagers"
A great pack meeting filled with fun!
