Beaver Section News
There were two activities for the Beavers to take part in this week. Half of the colony were outside learning how to erect a tent, with the other half making S'mores ( this is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States and Canada, consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of biscuit). Each Beaver was given a t light and toasted their marshmallow and then placed it between two biscuits.
This week was games night - the Beavers played various games and it was a very noisy evening. In this photograph (sorry not the best) they had to collect a disc from the centre and place it in their bowl. When they had gone they had to 'steal' one from another bowl. The winning lodge had to have 3 discs in their bowl.
The game being played in the picture is called Triangular Tug of War. There are 3 players of equal size holding onto a circle of rope equidistant from each other and from a skittle at the rear of each. On the instruction of "Go" they have each to try and grab their skittle.
