Bananas, chopping board, (plastic) knives, tooth picks, string, sticky tape, rubber bands, pins, blu tak


Split the pack up into smaller groups (Groups of 3) , and give each group a banana, cutting board and plastic knife. Each group should cut the banana into 4 or 5 equal sized pieces. (don't tell them what the next steps are at this point)

Then ask the cubs what happened their bananas and why they are in pieces?

Hand out banana surgery kits - pins, string, sticky tape, tooth picks, rubber bands etc. The goal is for each group to reassemble their banana.
