We started the evening by going out and playing a couple of games then came back to the den and brainstormed ideas of ‘Kiwiana’ and started our initial design for a Kiwiana wall hanging to be completed in a couple of weeks. The cubs then took on the challenge of ‘rescueing’ the Eskimos that had got caught on the fishing line.
Each cub had to ‘rescue’ one eskimo. Because there was a slight curve in the line the teams had to work strategically to ensure that each member had an eskimo appropriate to their height to ‘rescue’.
Not being allowed to use hands, and with the line sometimes bouncing around as a member of the oposing team achieved their ‘rescue’, this team game proved to be both a fun challenge as well as rewarding. I’m pleased to report that all of the Eskimos were “rescued” and Akela only had to provide backup assistance once during this dangerous mission.
