    Burns Night

    Just done my planning until Easter, and going to do Burns Night a week on Saturday. Got two (three) things so far :

    1) (Possibly) Get someone in who plays bagpipes
    2) Highland Games (Welly Throwing for sure + ???)
    3) Haggis Tasting :-)

    Can anyone think of anything else, particularly for the Highland Games part ?

    Highland games -
    how about tossing the caber (those long carboard tubes from wrapping paper roll)
    hammer throwing (dog toys)

    We did Burns night supper a couple of years ago, we made haggis, neeps and tatties and craighan (or however you spell it!) without the whiskey. The Beavers ate it all up.

    We also got them to write some poems that we recited while the haggis was brought in and sang auld lang syne.

    Great session on Saturday - caber tossing, haggis tasting, hammer throw, kilts, bagpipes, Glencoe (I'm a Campbell , eek) and deep fried Mars bars :-)

    Kids loved it - even squeezed in some actual facts rather stereotypes !
