Model making mayhem at Scouts tonight. We’ll done everyone getting a rubber band plane made from scratch, flying, doing loops and then through a hoop
It goes without saying it’s been a busy finish to the end of the year at 12th Darlington Cubs. We had a joint night with our Beaver section playing games and doing puzzles to allow both sections to get to know each other better.
We joined our Beavers and Scouts at the remembrance day service at our local church, Elm Ridge, where I’m glad to say so many 12th Darlington Beavers, Cubs and Scouts turned up it was standing room only. The other nights in our Scout HQ were spent problem solving, paracord bracelet making, playing team games and physical education working towards various parts of challenge badges.
To finish the year in the next couple of weeks we have a Xmas party, a pantomime (oh yes we do!) and a Saturday morning hike.
Merry Christmas everyone and Best Wishes for 2019
Every other year I invite parents to bring along an experiment of their choice to showcase to the beavers. This year we had 6 dads, 1 grandad and 1 mum. The beavers moved from table to table while the adult helpers explained the hands on experiments. From this we have gained an occasional helper. Yes! Badge work completed, forms for adult appointments completed and a chance for the leaders to chill out and wander around getting to know the young people.
