An update on our two Commemorative Plaques!
Really excited to report that Mark Brooks from Canterbury (a member of the Lettering Arts Trust) has just sent us these photos of our two Caithness stone commemorative plaques in final production – he just has the world scout logo to finalise now. It may be a while before we can actually pick them up for real but great to see they are nearly done!
The larger one will be installed at Gilwell and officially unveiled on Sunday 5th September 2021. The smaller of the two will be coming with us to Antarctica and then on our return will be installed and officially unveiled at Fordell Firs the Scottish Scout HQ.
Thanks so much for sharing some really good news for the project during these tough times for our fundraising Mark Brooks!
Loo Roll Penguin
To keep you entertained for the upcoming weeks, we have come up with some activities relating to Antarctica and our expedition, ReQuest 2021. Here are the first two and the next will be released in the next few days. Have fun!
Penguin Loo Roll
You will need;
-A loo roll (toilet roll)
-Pair of scissors
-Glue/tape, colouring materials (anything, it could be paint, pens, card,etc)
-Plain white paper
What to do;
Draw a line a couple of centimetres from the rim around the roll.
Cut down to and then along the line until you have a rectangular segment
On this rectangular segment draw two wings (you can fold it in half so the wings are the same) and cut them out.
With the remaining pieces of the rectangular segment, cut out two feet and a triangle for the beak.
Using paint, spare tissue paper, crayons, pencils or pens colour the wings black then the beak and feet orange.
Now time to decorate the main body of your penguin. Remember it’s white belly (you can use white paper) and eyes.
If you have any googly eyes around the house, use those Once your main body is finished, glue or tape on your feet, wings and beak.
If you have any split pins, attach the wings at the top so your penguin can waddle! Voila, you have a penguin! If you’re feeling creative, try making different penguin species like the Rockhopper.
As part of our ReQuest fundraising, we have 7 penguins to represent the levels of sponsorship. Try making each one.
