Winter Seasons badge

This week was our second back, although last week we only had 2 Brownies! This week we were finishing up our Seasons badge, so we had lots to do. It was all very busy and messy so we had no chance to take photos!

First we played tig and a couple of games of Port and Starboard. After that we moved into 3 stations:
We made some bird seed cakes from the RSPB youth site although Kestrel and Merlin couldn't get the microwave to work properly so it took ages for the lard to soften (it was a very frosty day!).
We also planted bulbs in glass jars so we can watch the roots grow, and finally we decided what we wanted to write on our postcards for the Postcard Exchange.

After all that it was a rush to get finished in time for the parents waiting outside! Next week we're having a quieter one, writing postcards and doing a bit of handbook work. Hopefully the postcards will get scanned in and appear here soon....

Oh and some sad news, one of the ladies who helps out with the other Brownies (occassionally, she's quite old now) was mugged just up from our meeting place on Sunday evening. She was pushed to the ground and quite badly injured, but she should be okay. It makes you think when something like that happens to someone you know, near where you are.

That's all for now,
