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.

What our Beavers customers say about us:
Pam,

A brilliant evening for all the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Lots of skills learned or at least attempted! and thoroughly enjoyed by all the young people and leaders alike. We are now being asked when you can come back!
Cliff,
Group Scout Leader
The Shooting Stars instructor was very friendly.
Catered to the abilities & attention spans of the three scouting sections participating in the three sessions.
The eldest section ie:- Scouts were able to grasp the basics of juggling & balance in a very short time and everyone of them were able to balance plates.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all participants
