It was a wonderful week, and I know that everyone had fun celebrating this spooky season with our Halloween games. We painted pumpkins, played the Sticky Marshmallow game, and had a potato race!
For our Foxes, we began with some pumpkin painting. Waylon, MaryJane, and Sophia won the painting competitions with their creative pumpkins. Next, the Foxes split into pairs and stood back to back with a potato in between them. They had to run through an obstacle course without dropping their potato. It was tough, but they did great nonetheless.
After our race with the potato, we headed back to the Lodge to play the Sticky Marshmallow game! One marshmallow smothered in sticky syrup was passed throughout the group. We then counted to twenty and whoever had the marshmallow at twenty, had to stick the marshmallow to their forehead. It was fun, and definitely sticky!
With the Ravens, we pumpkin painted to begin with our winners being Gabby, Remi, and Caleb! When we finished pumpkin painting, we moved onto face painting. The Ravens lined up and were given a Halloween face painting. After everyone’s faces were decorated, we competed in the potato race like the Foxes had done before us.
We headed back to the Lodge where we played the Witch Switch game. There was a ‘winning seat’ and before the winner was selected, everyone had to switch places. It was intense, and made the Ravens get to know each other a lot better.
And finally, with the Falcons, we painted pumpkins like the Foxes and Ravens had done before. Next, we went head to head, or back to back, in the potato race. All of the pairs did a fantastic job and all of the rounds were so close.
Later, we went back to the Lodge and gathered our pumpkins for our next task: smash the pumpkins! Serena’s pumpkin was impossible to break but she didn’t give up. Everyone had so much fun crushing the pumpkins. Seeds everywhere, we started our trek back to the Lodge and played the Witch Switch game like the Ravens had done the day prior. It was so much fun, and I know that all of the Ravens enjoyed it.
In the end, it was a week full of Halloween activities, in which all groups enjoyed. This week we have more tough and interesting challenges for you. Happy Halloween and have a spooky weekend everyone!
Yours in adventure,
Sarah, Georgia, Sophie, and Mr. Paton
