CRE8 Week Four: Outdoor and Adventure for Beavers and Cubs
Welcome to week four! Massive thanks to all of you for taking part in the CRE8 Challenge, we hope that you have been enjoying it so far. This week we are focusing on Outdoor and Adventure and we know that this is restrictive as we are continuing with Scouting at Home, but here are some great challenges:
In your own home or garden, try to attempt as many of these adventurous activities as you can:
- Caving system out of house-hold items and furniture
- Dragon boat out of recycled materials
- Home-made hovercraft
- Orienteering course around your house – what could you search for on a map?
- Create your own shelter to spend the night in https://www.shelterbox.org/the-sheltermaker-challenge/
- Create a comic strip about your favourite Scouting activity, then take a picture of it and send it in
Be as cre8-ive as possible (for some activities you’ll really need to ‘think outside the box’).
Remember to think about safety when you’re doing your activities and get your parents/carers to support you. Lots of useful safety information can be found on the Scout Association website or at https://www.rospa.com/Leisure-Safety/Advice/Camping
Take pictures and videos of what you do and share them on Merseyside Scouts social media #cre8Adventure.
We’ll pick the most cre8ive ones and you might even win a Tawd Vale badge as a reward!
- There are lots of activities provided by the Woodland trust https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2020/03/kids-nature-activities-self-isolation or http://treetoolsforschools.org.uk/menu/
- Show us your camp blanket – tell us about your favourite badge and camp/activity that you have attended.
- Make use of your garden space, if you have it, to try and grow something. Are homegrown vegetables tastier than shop-bought ones? Have some fun planting seeds and watch them grow. Harvest them and cook something tasty. This is a great website for lots of indoor and outdoor growing projects https://schoolgardening.rhs.org.uk/Resources/
- If it’s been a while since you were able to go on the water, then the Canal and Rivers Trust have a few activities for you to do at home https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/explorers/water-safety
- Recreate your favourite outdoor adventure activity/event out of lego or play-doh
Thanks to the team at Tawd Vale for putting together these sets of activities.
