Problem solving Beavers

This week, as part of their My Skills Challenge Badge the Beavers were taking part in problem solving activities organised by our Young Leader.

The first challenge was to build a tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti.  We had a number of different approaches, and some very frustrating moments when the spaghetti broke, but all team managed to build a structure at least 25cm high, with the tallest being 41cm .

      

The next challenge was to work in teams and cross the hall only standing on sheets of newspapers.  They quickly worked out that they had to work together and pass the spare newspaper sheet from the back to the front of the line.

   

The third problem was how to transfer malteasers from one bowl to the next with only chop sticks!

It was a fun night that was well planned and run by our Young Leader.
