Astronomy Cub disastor

Posted March 4th, 2009 by admin

Alaric took his cubs out onto the common for a second attempt at stargazing but yet again it was too cloudy. He walked them up to the top of the common and the cloud actually did start to clear but the kids were just being too restless by this point so the mission was aborted.

However once they were back at the village hall the moon was visiable so they all took turns to look at it through his binoculars.

The mistake he made here was that he didnt actually tell me what he had planed and therefore did not have any ‘incase’ indoor activities. Now last year I did the astronomy and astronuatics badges with my Scouts so I have alot of star globs and craft activities he could have done with them.

The children bizzarly still seemed to really enjoy it – especially the hot chocolate and marshmellows at the end :) So maybe it wasnt a complete disastor.
