Badges, Commonwealth Games 2018, Juniors

Hi Juniors,

We are going to work on the badge “Embracing 2018 – Commonwealth Games Challenge” in the first few weeks of Term 2.

I have a challenge for you before we start next week……..

  • Find out the motto of the Commonwealth Games & talk about what it means to you.

Bring along to junior guides your answer to what the motto is & what it means to you.

This week at Gumnut Guides, we are going to try and complete our fire badge. This is our first ‘Create a Challenge’ badge for the lovely new sashes.

Our four challenges are:

Light a candle

Cook a marshmallow over a candle

Learn a new campfire song

Make an edible campfire on a biscuit.

It will be a very busy night!

Looking forward to seeing you all then.
