“Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep” I blew my whistle to attract all the cubs for horseshoe. After horseshoe we gathered in Indian file and straightened our lines. Then, we sat down and gave our attention to Mdm. Karina. She was giving out badges. She told us what we were going to do. When I heard what we were going to do, I was super excited. We were going to build castles for king or queen. I joined platypus to help them out.
We were given straws, two rows of masking tape and scissors. We also could use anything we could find around us and in our bags. We were given 1hour and thirty minutes to make our castle. We quickly rushed to a random spot and started. We did the walls first by taping 26 straws together. We had to make four of those. I cut a hole out of one of the walls to make a doorway. We made the door out of straws. Then, we made the roof out of straws and aluminum foil.
After all of that, we compared each others castles and judge whose was the best. All of the sixes did a great job and the six with the most points were bilby and wombat. We ended the meeting with horseshoe and sixers council.
