Beaver Section News
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.
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.
