Beaver Section News
This week the Beavers were taken on a Nature Trail around Longford Park. They had to find the A - Z of nature, also there were 10 hidden discs and these had questions, which they had to answer. The weather was kind to us and the Beavers did really well, but it was the Magpie Lodge who found the most items. Well done. Also well done to Laura on achieving her Cyclist badge. All the Beavers were given the criteria for a badge they said they would like to achieve.
This week the Beavers made Non cook Fudge - they were all given a polythene bag and then icing sugar, butter, cream cheese and cocoa which they had to mould until all the ingredients were amalgamated. These were then taken home and hopefully will be edible fudge by this morning. The Beavers were also asked which badges they would like to achieve - next week they will be given the criteria for one of their choice. Well done to Sebastian on achieving his Explorers badge.
This week we were planting bulbs - unfortunately the weather beat us on Tuesday, so we had to just plant the bulbs in pots. Each beaver was given a pot, compost and a bulb which they planted and took home. We will ask them to bring the bulbs back later in the year and we will see whose is the tallest. The Wednesday Group were able to plant some crocus outside, as well as planting the pot. Well done to Josh on bringing in a log he had written over a period 12 weeks to gain his Gardening badge. Let's hope it encourages the rest of the Beavers to try and complete some badges.
As this was our first week back after the Summer break, we asked the Beavers about their holidays. Almost all were fortunate enough to have had a holiday away from home, many of them travelling abroad. We then played games and the one is the photograph is called triangular tug of war - three Beavers had to pull on the rope and try and retrieve the skittle in their area. Not an easy task, but all enjoyed the fun. Well done to all those who received badges this week.
