Ready, Steady, BAKE!

Tonight Scouts took part in a virtual baking session! The Scout Leaders were blown away by the Scouts creations last time around, so we decided that we kneaded to see more marvellous creations.

Although it may not be a matter of ‘loaf and death’, Scout did take this activity very seriously. We think at yeast a handful of the group may have a future in baking, as some of them found this weeks session a piece of cake!

That’s done week 2 of new term  and it looks like we’re on a roll!

Thursday 17 July - Games Night

For our last meeting before the summer we held a game night.

We started off with kim’s game where we had to guess which objects disappeared through a range of pictures.

We then moved onto an Egyptian themed escape room where we split into small groups and had to solve the clues  on screen. 

This was followed up by an interactive game of guess who with all the Scouts dressing up in fancy dress and took the places of the characters normally used in the game.

We finished off with an explosive game of battleships!

2nd July - Crafts & Games

Another FANTASTIC Virtual Scouting evening took place tonight. This week we tackled the great prehistoric outdoors by creating toilet roll dinosaurs! With arguably success all round, we saw a huge range of shapes, sizes, and colours (who knew so many dinosaurs have spots)... After this, we took on a few more paper based building and craft challenges. We also played a number of group games to put the Scouts brains in gear, and build some competitive sprit. It may not be the great outdoors, but we still had an absolute blast!

Thursday 9 July - The Great Zoom Bakeoff

This week on Thursday after high demand, we returned to some Zoom cooking and baking!

The Scouts were given the length of the meeting to either bake or cook something delicious. They even got people in their homes to be their 'Taste-Testers. Nerve-wracking stuff!

Highlights of the evening include some banana bread, cat shaped cookies, lemon drizzle cake and some sumptuous scones.

Thanks to everyone for your efforts.

A big well done!
