100 Goals!

Our Brownies were supposed to be playing water games and doing water tasting tonight, but after a weekend of sunshine, it was chilly and drizzly today. Instead, we had a look at some other challenges.

From the adventure 100 booklet....
6. Target 100

Can your unit score 100 goals, hop, skip or jump 100 times,
or shoot 100 archery arrows on target? Have an evening of
sports-type targets with participation medals for everyone
taking part (all 10)

Three plastic balls
This is what we did tonight! All of our Brownies hit 100 targets or goals each! We are lucky that our young leader has a lot of sports equipment, so we set up 5 different stations:
1. Use a golf club to hit 10 balls into the goal. The green balls were placed 2m away from the goal and the red balls were 3m away. We each had to get all 10 in before we could move onto the next one...
2. Beanbags in hoops! We had a green hoop and a yellow hoop, and the green one was further away. There were 5 each yellow and green beanbags and we had to get them into the matching hoops. This one was the hardest station. Well, the hardest unless, like me, you can't balance on the....
3. Balance board!

getting the ball from one side to the other counted as 1 goal. This isn't as easy as it looks!
Next it was on to:
4. "Basketball". We had a hoop balanced on 2 chairs and we had to throw a ball into the hoop 10 times. Even though it was a pretty big hoop, this station was still quite difficult.
5. The final station was a football station. We had little marker cones set up as a goal, and had to kick the ball into the goal. Simple!

My friends out there who have been counting will realise that this is only 50 each, so once we got to the end, we did it all again!

We were all pretty thirsty after all that, so had a drink, then played some parachute games and scored a few more goals, just for fun!

Next week, Teddy and I are visiting Pluto! Thanks for voting :)
