Joey's Fun Day

Today was our region's Joey's Fun Day - about 200 Joeys (youngest level of Boy Scouts) gathered at a park in Newcastle for a day of activities with a 'Lost in Space' theme. Boy did they have some fun!

Among other things, they did some space themed craft like making rockets & meteors

fired air powered 'rockets'

ran an obstacle course 5 or 6 times!

walked across the rope bridge

made some alien face biscuits

went on the flying fox

and played various 'space themed' games.

I was exhausted - and I was just walking around helping out!! As you can imagine, the boy had a great day!!

What a cool theme. It looks like a fabulous day. I may have to snag some of these ideas...

I showed this post to my 9yo son who is in Cub Scouts in the USA. They do activities like the Joey's. Very cool!

Wit and Whimsy - do the cub scouts in the USA have a younger level like we do? Joeys are 6-8yo, then I think cubs are 7-10yp. I'd be interested in knowing what other countries have and what they call them! (A Joey is a baby kangaroo)
