At the weekend, Keas, Cubs, Scouts and their families took advantage of the glorious Wellington Spring weather and tramped to Red Rocks along the coast, sweeping up various flotsam and jetsam along the way.
With warmer springtime weather coming more frequently, our keas took advantage of the sunshine to explore the neighbourhood in their posses and hunt for leaves to make rubbings of to decorate the hall!
Walls were climbed, bugs were found and we ended up with heaps of cool looking leaves for the kids to stick up on our wall next week, ka pai!
This week our keas delved into the topic of zero waste and explored ways to repurpose household items to keep them in use for longer! We had a blast decorating flower pots to plant some watercress that can go in our sandwiches and salads for lunches. Yum!
This week our humans did another Kea requested topic: road safety! We played some games and did some first class acting out scenarios about how to interact with different members of the public while on the footpath, which lead to both laugher and learning! Breaking into our posses the Keas practiced independent road crossing in various parts of the area, and demonstrated our safety so well that we had enough time to take our safety glow sticks back to the hall for some fun!
Who would have thought a blend of history, knots, poles and a competitive race could be so much fun for Brooklyn Scouts 😊
