Heart for Valentines

12 February 2015

valentine_heart_biscuitIt was a quiet night in Carlton Scout Group Cub pack tonight, a local primary school were having a Valentines Disco so only 18 cubs attended our meeting. We started the evening with a few games of Chinese Whispers and lots of giggling took place. Ben S provided feedback afterwards “somehow it turned from ‘hula hoops to Postman Pat’, and then we did ‘I go to bed early’ but that was soon changed to I hate to go to bed early”

The main activity of the night was decorating Valentines Hearts and we hope that some actually made it home intact as gifts for loved ones. It seemed a popular activity, perhaps it was the biscuits that were handed all to all cubs during the session (small heart shaped shortbread biscuits) so that all received a Valentines Gift! Yes this also included all the leaders and helpers!!

We finished our evening with a game of Tummy Football. The cubs are very competitive and tried very hard to beat the opposing team however after a boisterous 15 minutes it was declared a draw and all cubs were awarded points for their six for trying their best!

Thank you to Paul A for staying and helping tonight and also to Raksha, Bagheera, Baloo, Shen, Darzee, and Mao for helping run a great night, I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.

Awards: As we closed for the evening we awarded Jacob H his 4 years award badge, Thomas W his Outdoor Challenge badge and certificates for all those who took part in the swimming gala last Saturday. Cub Contracts were handed out and these are for cubs to take home as a reminder of the group agreement they all helped to write.
