Build Birdnests

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Cubs or Beavers build bird nests from natural materials strong enough to hold six Cream Eggs.


Enough cream eggs for one per Cub, sufficient natural materials - We run this at the local camp site where the there is always enough twigs and moss.


Each six is told to find the right materials and then build a bird nest large enough and strong enough to be able to lift six cream eggs in the air. We also discuss how birds might do this with their beaks and no hands. I'll let you guess what happens to the eggs after the meeting!
