Lots of sweets at Sixers & Seconders evening

You knew that, if the Cubs organised the evening themselves, there would be sweets involved, and that’s how it turned out!

They started with  a paper aeroplane design challenge (sweets as prizes) to a paper aeroplane race (sweets as prizes) – won by Alfie.

The ladder game was followed by – which team can build the highest Polo tower (Kai’s group) (you can guess what the prize was).  The evening finished off with an eating-sweets-with-chopsticks challenge (no prize necessary).

Let’s hope they all cleaned their teeth properly before bed!  Well done to the Sixers and Seconders

Cubs in a tangle

The cubs were given a challenge this week, to build a free-standing structure which could carry the weight of a brick.

The three sixes each had a good attempt – some more successfully than others.

The evening finished up with a game called ‘Tidy Up’ where junior members of each six had to adorn their sixers with as much equipment as possible (without dropping any).  This wasn’t just a test of strength for the sixers, but tested their creativity in finding new ways to hold everything!
