What we have been doing
Beavers like to do big things, here is our colony dragon for St George's Day
We finished for Easter with maggot racing. Here's the proof.
We had a spring visit to 5th Dartford's climbing wall. Everyone had a go.
In February we learnt about the Princess Elizabeth becoming our Queen while in Kenya.
We started 2012 with a Group party with cubs, scouts and families, we played many traditional party games.
Christmas Fair in the Scout Hall, beavers sang a few Christmas songs.
We had a sleepover in the hall in November – global theme - found out about Sweden, tried Swedish cheese, learnt our names, played with a glowing ball in the dark as winter is long in Sweden. – started Saturday afternoon and ended lunchtime Sunday everyone had a great time
Made cakes and held a tea party with parents for Marie Curie.
Enjoyed a visit to the Salvation Army HQ in Dartford for several bases around faith for our faith badge.
The beavers also went down to the Orchard Centre to launch Dartford's poppy selling with the Mayor.
Been very creative painting giant castles which we then played in, made large adult size skeletons and painted poppies for a huge mural for Remembrance Sunday.
Enjoyed a county event at Quez Park celebrating 25 years of Beaver Scouts in 2011.
We had a visit from Kent Air Activities team and the beavers tried the flight simulator flying stunt aircraft.
