Cubs hobby badge

The Cubs have been doing their hobby badge.   To gain the badge you have to be actively involved in a hobby of your choice.  You then have to show and explain what equipment, materials and background information you have used to take part in your hobby including any safety rules.  You have to tell your fellow cubs about your hobby including why you have chosen it and what you enjoy about it.

Tonight was a real treat – one of our Cubs likes pond dipping and finding leeches.  He and his Dad brought in a microscope and a selection of leeches they’d found in a local stream.   Not only did they share it with the Cubs, the Scouts had a look too!
