Christmas Sleepover

Our Christmas Sleepover was great fun!

We started off with decorating the hall with loads and loads of paper chains made the hall look really Christmassy!

Next we went outside to the school field where we played games in the dark, with torches, giving us chance to get muddy, run about and have a laugh! Some of the cubs were very good at creeping about in the dark.

After a drink back inside we decorated some mugs and made some ‘Chirstmas jumping jacks’ – you just never knew when they were going to jump!

It’s never a Christmas sleepover without the snowman game, with teams wrapping each other up in tissue to look like a snowman – even the adults joined in!

Then how best to use up white tissue at Christmas – a snowball fight of course.

Next we had hot chocolate and hot dogs – always a winner, with second helpings all round!

Bed time was very exciting, with tents ‘popping up’ everywhere! Luckily it was quite late and everyone settled down really quickly, ready for the next day.

A new day meant more food – after we’d packed all our stuff away we had a full English breakfast, cooked by Steve, our ever trusty camp cook!

Our next challenge was orienteering ‘Christmas’ style and everyone got a prize for completing the task.

After a few more games everyone went home, happy, but tired!
