The Beavers have been working on their cooking skills by preparing and eating some world foods.
We started work on the International Badge by cooking and eating the following world foods:
- Onion bahgees from India.
- Spaghetti and tomato sauce from Italy.
- American style pancakes.
- Croissants with melted chocolate from France.
- Natural yoghurt and honey from Greece.
So, a good collection of world Foods. The Beavers really enjoyed them, especially the sweet stuff.
Speaking of sweet and savoury, because we prepared more than three dishes including at least one sweet and one savoury, this also counted towards 50% of the Cook activity badge.
We had a quick log chew at the end. The Beavers learned where each of the world foods came from. They also told us which they liked the best. Chocolate croissants and the American pancakes were the joint winners.

We hope to finish off the International Badge in the sleepover meeting on 14th October. We will do this at the start so that any Beavers not staying overnight do not lose out.
As for the Cook badge, well it’s a case of when we can fit it into the programme! We will do this, but in the meantime Beavers are welcome to finish it off at home. The requirements can be found at https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/4257/cook-activity-badge/?cat=11,18,774&moduleID=10
Baloo and a couple of the Cubs visited us. This was because we were sad but proud to say goodbye to one of our Beavers. We are sure he will make the Cub leaders as proud as he has made us.
Next week, we will be finding out about Rabbits recent trip to Brownsea Island. This was the place that the very first Scout camp was held in 1907. It is still an important place in Scouting history.
