Of course there wasn't enough room in the hut (which if you look up at the ceiling ALSO uses A-frame strength in the roof supports) so we used tightly knotted rubber bands & bamboo skewers ...there would have been flat as a pancake cubs if we'd tried to use the real thing, (besides pancake day is over).
IF you'd like to try a bit more missile throwing click the picture above which will take you to lego instructions how to make one at home with LEGO!
We also found this fun LEGO online game HERE which rewards you when you master each level! ..hope you have fun!
Later on we listened to 2 Cubs (both girls) ..."come on boy's don't leave it to the girls" who talked us through Gymnastics, showing us a bundle of certificates & sewing badge awards, then we listened to another cub run through their book badge requirements, which if your child enjoys reading is "easy-peasy" to get!
Several boys ..(phew) said they were going to try out for a badge or three, including a hobby badge for football! Another said he would got for his hobbies badge, which is swimming ..we suggested they try swimming for the swimming badge! ...seems logical to us!
SO with that in mind we'll pop a link (click the badge) for you to have a rummage around our badge page, you can then (with an adult) talk through what you might have already achieved toward a badge, & what little bit more you need to do to get a cub badge for your sleeve!
So come on Cubs, drag an adult to the computer, click on the site & see, you MIGHT already have qualified for a badge without even knowing it! (you don't necessarily have to do everything for a badge all at once & some parts of it may have been covered elsewhere)
Come & talk to a leader at the beginning or end of your next session, this gives us time to order a badge if necessary, & also offer advice if needed!
HINT: if you complete a badge, & sew it on (with some adult guidance) ..you are already on your way to another badge! ...see if you can find out which one it is!
