Tonight the Cubs started to work towards the DIY (Do It Yourself) Activity Badge.
Half the Pack (Blue, Green & Orange sixes) spent the evening measuring and cutting a strip of wood and small pieces of dowel and then sticking the dowel onto the wood as a starting point to making a lego style key holder.
The remaining sixes (Red, White & Yellow) spent their time talking about the different types of wood that are available for DIY projects, how to handle tools safely and how to properly look after them and finally had a go at designing their own version of a keyholder.
My thanks to Mike and Bill who volunteered to help tonight which was really appreciated. Anyone free for next week and who would like to help please let me know – thank you in anticipation.
- Jordan & Leo who were awarded Scout Mate badges for introducing their respective Grand Dads into my Group team as a Beaver Sectional Assistant and Group Executive member respectively.
- Aden who was awarded a collectors badge for being a Numismatist (Coin Collector)
- Aadi for receiving a two year Joining In badge.
Points to-date: Each week the Cubs will be able to earn points for their six. This can be by winning games, being helpful, attending church parade, bringing in stamps, coins and milk bottle tops (we collect these for charity) or for being the first six ready (and quiet) for an activity.
- Blue Six – 785
