Scouts : Bridge Building

I spent a wonderful evening watching our scouts (8 – 10 year olds) building bridges with ropes and wood across our stream…

In this first picture we have Alfie and his friend Douglas who had “a great technique” – to simply throw the sticks in one place in the river! 😂 In the fifth picture down you can see how their bridge progressed – and, yes, it actually did work to walk across – and a couple of us grown-ups did try! 😄

In the rest of the pictures, with slightly older scouts, you can see that their techniques are a little more ‘traditional’. Each bridge worked as it should, and all the kids showed amazing teamwork…

Incredible what young kids can do without an adults help when they are given the chance! 👍
