To night the Beavers boarded the mini bus and we travelled to Antz in your Pantz in Timperley for the Beaver District Party.
The Beavers played on the equipment for an hour and a half and then sat down for their party. There was plenty of food including pizza, sausages, sandwiches, ice cream and drinks. They were all given a cracker. Just before we left at 8.30, Father Christmas arrived and gave each Beaver a goody bag. They were also given a balloon as they left - unfortunately some were popped even before they reached the mini bus. A good time was had by all and I am sure they slept well after so much running around.
To night the Beavers have all made a Yule Log. A lodge at a time, they had to cover a small swiss roll in butter icing and then make it look like the bark of a tree. They then decorated it with edible an edible tree, berries and leaves. Many thanks to Marie (Charlie's grandma) for making the edible decorations. The rest of the Beavers played games.
To night the Beavers went on a Night Hike around Longford Park. Each Lodge was given a cane and they had to keep hold this at all times. Before they left the Ranche they were given a piece of paper with some braille writing and a date - during the walk they had to see if they could find these items. All the leaders were wearing hats and they were asked to observe if anybody changed hats during the walk. We left the Ranche and headed towards the playground. They had to walk along boulders - making sure that they worked as team and kept hold of the cane at all times. They then had to go through 3 tunnels - again holding the cane. We then walked back through the park to an enclosed area where they had to find 3 carved animals. It was at this time they would find pictures of birds, with their names in braille underneath - they had to come back and tell the leader the names of the birds that were written in Braille. The next task was to find the date - 1888 - and this we found on a blue plaque, which was on the remains of Longford Hall. We then walked back to the Ranche and each Beavers was given a 'water bomb', which they had to through into a bowl. The Beavers were very well behaved and enjoyed their Night Hike.

To night the Beavers behaviour was excellent. They sat and listened to a story about Tyrannasaurus Drip, which was read to them by Deborah. After the story they made a cut out dinosaur and also had the chance to complete a wordsearch.
As part of the Global Challenge, the Beavers have to be able to say a greeting in another language and several were able to do this. The greetings were very impressive and ranged from Wales to Japan. Well done to all of you.
