Beaver Section News
The Beavers had to negotiate an obstacle course this week. This was set up downstairs and 2 lodges took their turns, whilst the other 2 lodges were upstairs playing Beetle Drive. A good time was had by all.
This week the Beavers were learning about Healthy Eating. They were given half a clementine, grapes, blueberries and Melon and made a fruit salad. This week each Beaver was given a badge celebrating the 30 years of Beavers. These should be attached to their sweatshirt for the next 12 months.
The Beavers were asked to bring buttons, old jewellery, feathers etc to make a brooch for Mother's Day. They all worked very hard and produced some nice items. Well done to Joshua on achieving three badges. Tonight we said goodbye to Ellie, Matthew and Annie, who all start Cubs next week - we wish them well.
The programme for this week was log chew and games. This is part of their badge work - they were put into their lodges and then we asked them a series of questions to get their opinion on the Beaver Colony. They were asked questions - what did they like or dislike about Beavers, what different things they would like to do. Also their opinion on the District activities. Some of their answers were surprising.
