    Camp Fire Songs for Beavers

    I've been asked to run a camp fire for our Beavers in a couple of weeks time, and I was wondering if anyone who works with our youngest section could recommend a few songs that work particularly well with this age group. Any other comments or observations re. keeping them entertained would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    We're going on a bear hunt is ideal for Beavers - most of them will have read the book relatively recently at home.
    Does anyone know what's going on?

    There were 10 in the bed and the little one said
    ROLL OVER, ROLL OVER
    So they all rolled over and one fell out
    And his head smashed in and his guts fell out
    PLEASE REMEMBER TO TIE A KNOT IN YOUR PYJAMAS
    Single beds are only made for... 1 2 3 etc

    I mean it's a bit gory but they love it.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Don't know Alice the Camel, but I'm sure I can find it on YouTube.

    We call this 'Fast Food' and its one of the Scouts' favourites (especially the Star Wars alternative).

    Playing with my baby bumble bee - make sure it is the version with "throwing up my baby bumble bee". Beavers love songs with icky in them

    If you are a Beaver and you know it clap your paws, wag your tail, build a dam etc etc

    Penguin song

    Johnny was a parachutist (sigh)

    Akela does a version of going on a bear hunt which has 'guns, big guns and bullets lots of 'um'.. not keen on that one!

    I suppose any song that follows the "lead and repeat" structure would work, or lots of repetition.
    I do camp fires for our Cubs, but when our beavers attend, the ones that they like are
    The pirate song (when I was 1 I ...... the day I went to sea)
    Have you ever had a penguin come for tea?
    My name's Joe (button factory)
    Plus others...

    Is that the one where the pigeon ends up covered in shite, or is there a more Beaver-friendly version of which I am unaware...
