#60SecondScouting | Episode 4 Lolly Stick Catapults

Posted on June 15th, 2020 by Sam Raby

We’re back with another in our mini-series 60 Second Scouting. In this episode, we show you how to make a catapult out of all those used lolly sticks.

You will need:
– 10 x Lolly Sticks (cleaned)
– Rubber Bands
– A Bottle Cap
– Blu Tack
– Ping Pong Balls (or paper balls)

Step By Step:
1) Group 7 sticks together with a band at each end.
2) Now group 2 sticks together in the same way.
3) Attach the last stick to the group of two, but this time only the one end.
4) Slide the group of 7 sticks down the middle of the three, and secure with more bands.
5) Add an extra band around the middle to ensure it doesn’t move.
6) Add a small ball of Blu Tack to the end of the single stick.
7) Press the bottle cap onto the Blu Tack and you’re finished!

Toasty hands on a cold night!

Posted on February 21st, 2019 by Dani Marney

The Scouts tried their hand at a bit of sewing and made some lovely hand warmers. We will be finishing them off next week and will post the pdf here if anyone wants to have a go at home! We even had some chocolates to share round as we said goodbye to one of Scouts moving to Scotland. We wish her all the best in the future! #iscout #jointheadventure #skillsforlife
