4th Benoni and a visit with Alice

I so enjoyed my visit to 4th Benoni today ..... and who should we meet up with but Alice in Wonderland!
 Alice is sitting on the riverbank with her sister and is very bored.  She sees a white rabbit running by and decides to follow it down its hole.  She finds herself in a room with many locked doors - she needs a key.
Cubs run around looking for the golden key which  has been hidden before cubs starts.

 Once the door is open Alice sees that there are many strange characters in Wonderland
RELAY GAME:  Wonderland
Cubs line up in relay formation.  Place 6 different pictures of wonderland pictures on the walls - one for each cub.  Let them first of all run and collect a picture making sure that each six has different pictures.  In relay they run forward and collect whatever item corresponds with their character.
Example: Cheshire Cat - mask of cat;  white rabbit - clock

 Alice begins her strange journey and gets advise from a caterpillar and directions from a Cheshire Cat!
TRAIL - Find the Cheshire Cat's Grin
 A trail is set out for each six - differentiated by colour.  Once they have completed the trail they need to look for the cat's grin.

 Alice can make herself large or small by eating different items
KIM"S GAME - Tasting 20 items

 Recalling them all and writing them down.
 Learning time

 Alice follows the directions from the cat and arrives at the Mad Hatters un-birthday party!
TEAM GAME:  Pouring the Tea....Cubs are divided into Teams.  Each team has a teapot, plastic cup, tray and a bucket of water.  The cub needs to fill the teapot, pour the tea into the cup and walk across the hall to another bucket to deposit the water.  Team with the most water in the bucket wins.

Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
