Tonight we spoke about our badges. Especially for those who have just come up from Beavers make sure to take off your Beaver badge but keep them safe.
You can sew them onto a Camp Blanket like Karen and Adrienne or sew them onto a Hoodie like Rory does.
Either way make sure to keep them safe and swap with other Cubs or Scouts.
We spoke about our Specials Interest Badges, make sure to continue working on them, Plan Do Review.
We congratulate Stella who did a great project, planning and making a 3 course meal. Lots of work was put into it and it certainly sets the standard.
After that half the group played some games while Rory and Cormac took the newer Cubs outside to go over the Axe, Saw and Knife.
NB No Cubs are EVER allowed to use any of these.
Only when they have moved to Scouts and then be instructed, tested and permitted by the Leaders will they be allowed near them.
This exercise was to demystify them and to make sure the Cubs understand just how dangerous they can be.
Both Rory and Cormac showed them the parts of each tool, how to use them safely and how to care for them.
After that we played Land, Sea and Air did Grand Howl and went home.
Yours in Scouting
