The Cub Scout annual Blue & Gold Banquet was this last Sunday. They always have a fun theme & this year it was Mindcraft. If you don't know what that is, don't worry, I don't either, and both of my boys play it. As far as I know, it is a game where you build cities. The boys' Uncle Sam plays it & when they found that out, it made him their new BFF. ;0)
When we got there, they had a giant maze made out of boxes for the boys to go through. They also had to find certain things in the maze before they could get out. (Sorry these pictures are terrible...they're from my phone.)
First though, they had to make masks/hats out of paper bags to be a character from the game:
The boys were SO excited to go through the maze!
Even Lily got to go!
After the maze, we had dinner & then it was time for the awards, leveling up for some, and the Arrow of Light ceremony for those becoming Boy Scouts. (Zach will get to do that next year.)
Riley moved up to a Bear Cub, and got a new neckerchief & badge:
And Zachary got a badge for his hard work in Weebelos 1 & will be in Weebelos 2 next year!
It is a fun way to get recognition for their hard work as scouts!
