Decorate a scout's face like a cake.
Game taken from Dave Tomlin Messtival resources. Thank you Dave.
Cake decorating supplies:
mini marshmellows - kept until second part of the activity
flannels/buckets of water/shower
mop and bucket
One scout per patrol is the cake. His/her face is to be decorated like a cake.
Use various icing, chocolate spread, sprinkles, syrup, cherries etc, all put into paper bowls. Teams are given about 5 minutes to decorate each face with the winner being the team with the most artistic designs.
Have a load of small marshmallows kept to one side. Patrols to throw their marshmallows at the "cakes" from around 2 metres away. However gets the most marshmallows stuck in a set time is the winner.
No running, the floor maybe slippy tonight, although try not to get stuff on the floor.
Beware of food allergies
Beware of eyes, perhaps the use of googles, particularly for the marshmallow throwing.
