This week we had a week of playing and games and doing a Log Chew. A log chew is where we ask the Beavers what they like best about Beavers, what they don't like and what things they would like to do that we don't do already. They had some different ideas - sorry forgot to take a photograph this week.
This week the Beavers went on a Night Hike around the park. They certainly enjoyed splashing through the puddles and it was very wet under foot. The rain held off until we go back to the Ranche
This week was a football themed week and the Beavers were invited to wear their football shirts, if they wished. We played football themed games and also completed a football wordsearch - which the Beavers were keen to complete
This week the Beavers were making a Peg Scout. They were given a peg and they had to paint a face and hair on the top and then decorate the rest of the peg. They were then given a piece of cloth, that they had to fold to represent a necker and then put two ends together and tie a piece of pipe cleaner round it to represent a woggle. The Beavers all did very well, as it was quite fiddly to do.
We had an early Hallowe'en party this week, due to it being half term next week.
Many of the Beavers came in fancy dress. They had different stations to go to. The first was donuts hanging on string - they had to put their hands behind their back and try to eat them. As a lodge the Beavers had to cover one person in toilet paper to make them a mummy. They then went to decorate marshmallows with various sweets and lastly there was a large bowl of jelly with hidden sweets. They had to try and retrieve a sweet without using their hands. A good night was enjoyed by all
This week the Beavers were working for their Air Activity Badge. There were four different things they had to do
1 Make an aeroplane out of paper
2 See how far it would fly and then try to fly it over the beam in the Ranche
3 Learn about different types of aeroplane and tell us where they have been on an aeroplane
4 Learn how to apply the phonetic alphabet and then write their name using this alphabet and answer some questions on the phonetic alphabet.
To start the meeting this week, the Beavers coloured in a picture of a super hero. They were asked to bring along some junk (egg boxes, boxes etc) that they could make into a vehicle for their super hero, with moving parts. All the Beavers did extremely well with the task
As this was our first week back, we had a night of games and a fire drill. Welcome to Josie and William new Beavers this week. We also said goodbye to Kaleb and Xanthe as they continued their scouting journey into Cubs. We wish them a happy time as they move on.
