Moving on....This week we have cubscout day camp. The theme this year is pirates. I had to do a station yesterday so wasn't free to run the boys down for pictures. That made me sad. Yesterday we made pirate candles, did a pirate wrap game, made seawolf sandwiches (tuna), the dens made den flags, worked on a den skit and tie-dyed bandanas, made eye-patches and pirate belts at one station as well. They were kept very busy. Today - I got to be with the boys. This is what we did - and thought I would share with those reading my blog.
Just before the morning flag our den is assembled. We have L-R Chris, Cayden, Levi, Cole, Tyler, Nathan, Connor, Ryan and Ben. Our den is called the Island Hoppers.
Our first station of the day is BB Guns. Here Chris is trying to figure out how to hold/use/shoot the darn thing!
Next we made Bloody Pasta. Really the boys cut up green bell peppers and mushrooms, hamburger was added, pirate pasta was added and last spaghetti sauce poured over the top. They seasoned the pasta with some spices and enjoyed their little snack.
Our third station of the day was "Hook and Look." The boys made pirate hooks and little paper fish aquariums. Some of the boys weren't too keen on making these.
A picture of Chris and me during lunch. Notice the bandana he is wearing on his head. He tie-dyed this yesterday at the Pirate gear station. I actually liked his the best of all. The colors are so pretty.
Our after lunch activity today was to go down to the beach. Yesterday we had emergency procedures. Here is Chris on the beach at Camp Clark.
A portion of our den - The Island Hoppers. We have L-R Nathan, Ryan, Chris, Ben and Tyler.
Porthole paintings was the 4th station of the day. All the boys were very creative in drawing what they thought they might find from the window of a pirate ship! Here is Chris hard at work on his.
Scurvy. A disease nobody would ever want. That's what the boys learned about today. They even got to try lemons and limes and eat some oranges. Things that help prevent scurvy.
