    Gang Show?

    Well, you can't really call it a Gang Show. We put on a show for parents each Christmas. All 3 sections do something. Last year, the Beavers did a couple of songs as did the cubs, and the scouts put on a short play.

    We have about 20-30 minutes to kill with the Beavers and I really need some ideas. The show is on 11th December which doesn't give me much time. I really really need some help here. This is not my strong point at all.

    Thanks guys.

    Hi

    Do you use this as a fund raiser as well as well?

    You could do sketches like 12 days of camp -- based on 12 days of christmas with "On the 1st day of camp arkela gave to me 1 mallet" and go on to use other things like 5 dirty plates, etc and have the cubs line up with the items

    Yes, but we don't charge very much, so usually make about £60 or so.

    Like the 12 days of camp idea. Thanks. That should be fairly easy to pull off at short notice!

    Any other ideas gratefully received.

    How about getting a Leader to narrarate some of the Friends of the Forest story and get the Beavers to act out the parts. You probably won't be able to do the whole thing but that leaves scope for "Episode II" at a later show. You can get them to make some scenery and/or costumes and facemasks as a run up to it. Creative badges to all who take part.

    I'd never seen that story before, but a quick Google search has thrown it up. Good idea.

    If you have trouble getting the whole story, I've got all eight chapters in Word if you want it.

    Thanks. That would be great. I've got the first chapter, but it would also be useful for sleepovers.

    Thanks. What a lovely story. I have 2 Beavers who are twins going up to cubs in January. They will be my first ones to go up since we opened the Colony, so this is really fitting.
