5.00pm Opening Malu
5.05pm Game: Silkworm Race Kirrang
Divide Joeys into four even teams and each are given a cotton wool
ball and a straw. The idea is to get their cotton wool ball to the end of
the hall and back.
5.10 Cooking: Rice Crispy Cakes (Chocolate Crackles) Yara
Divide Joeys in half and make two lots of Crackle mix. Joeys can do the mixing and have the parent helpers spoon into the patty cases and place in fridge. These will then be given out at the end of the meeting.
5.20 Game:Tropical Rainstorm Aquila
Place the Joeys in a circle and explain to them that we are going to recreate a tropical rainstorm. The leader starts and the i oeys will follow one by one until the whole circle is doing the same. The actions are as follows:-
1 . Rub hands together - Wind
2. Tap two fingers on palm of hand - Raindrops
3. Clap hands together gently - Rain becoming heavier
4. Pat hands on knees - Strong Rain
If time permits you can do these things in reverse to show the stort,n calming down.
5.30 Craft: Musical Rice Instruments Malu
Each Joey to decorate a polystyrene cup as they prefer. A small
amount of rice is placed in each and a lid (paper towel or tissue paper) is placed over the top. Use either a elastic band, glue or tape to secure. Play away - Gently
5.40 Game: Rice Grab Orana
Joeys form four even teams and stand in each corner of the hall. A pile of rice is placed in the centre of the hall and each Joey scout is given a paddle pop stick. The idea is to collect as many grains of rice as they can and return to their team with them without dropping any. Any dropped rice needs to be picked up without using their hands, if possible,and they can carry no more then five grains of rice at a time.
