Beavers:Beavers LOVE circus skills!
This is a great opportunity for the Beavers to have some fun whilst learning both hand eye co-ordination and balancing skills. We usually start the session with Feather balancing, which is an easy but challenging activity, teaching them how to balance objects on their hand, finger, arm, shoulder & head.
We then teach them lots of tricks with 2 juggling scarves starting easy and then progressing on to more challenging tricks but always with a sense of fun. This is a very physical workout which the leaders always enjoy taking part in.
We then move on to 1 & 2 juggling balls, starting with one and explaining the correct way to throw and catch a ball and then moving on to the two ball pattern. Next we teach the Beavers an easy way to spin a plate and also teach them three tricks which they love to show their parents when they are picked up.
We finish the evening with some ‘free’ time where they can have a go at some of the other equipment we bring along. E.G. Bucket stilts, mini bikes, pedal racers, diabolos, flower sticks, hoola-hoops & even some unicycles. (Equipment used will be at the discretion of your instructor.) Circus Skills is a positive experience for the Beavers helping them to grow in confidence and self-esteem.
