Pappa Animals - 9th Benoni - 14th June 2013

Today we are going to be honouring our Fathers
 Some of the silliest games we play are with our fathers.

 In the animal kingdom and in our homes, Dad's have a lot to teach us...
 Things can get a little out of hand when mom's away and dad is in charge!

 Let's show dad how much we love him..

 and before we knew it, it was time to say good bye to 7 of our cub scouts who were going up to scouts...

 Re-affirming their Promise

 Introducing them to the Troop

 It was also time to say goodbye to the Troop Scouters - Veronique and Peter.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing

Farm Animals - 31st May 2013 at 9th Benoni

Today we went down to the farm to see what we could see!

Old Macdonald had a farm and on that farm he had a "duck, duck, goose"  An easy quick game to play as a steam release.
 For instruction today we did some quick Kim's games.  We were short on leaders so divided the cubs into 3 groups and had 3 bases.  The CI ran this base where Akela had put different items into containers.  There were 2 containers that sounded exactly the same.  The cubs had to shake until they paired them up ..... a lovely game!
 Animals on the farm - a number were placed on the table and the children had to look carefully - turn their back whilst one was taken away and then they needed to guess which one.

 Next up was showing them pictures of farm animals and they had to remember them all.

 Feeding time on the farm is very important and has to be done carefully to ensure the animals get the right food.
 Here cubs pass life saver sweets from one to the other..

 On the farm team work is important.
 Cubs in their Six's have to pick up a stave with 2 fingers each and work together.

 Then they had to do it backwards....
 Cubs then did a bit of play acting..
 Our cubs love to do this and are not really shy....

 Our last game was "donkey" and whoever was in the middle had to act like a monkey...

Such fun had by all!
Till next Time
