Beavers Celebrate Chinese New Year – The Year of the ‘Pig’

The Beavers celebrated Chinese New Year 2019, the twelfth sign of the Chines Zodiac, with dressing up and tasting various delicious Chinese dishes, cooked by Chefs, ABSL, Hazel and Norman Rider. The Beavers were greeted by BSL, Cherry in Chinese, “Nǐ hǎo” and they said their opening in Chinese too.

Then they played Chinese dragon boat games with Ash and Cherry before sitting down to taste and eat delightful food such as; fresh noodles, vegetable rice, egg rice, sweet & sour chicken, spring onions, spring rolls & prawn crackers. They even tried eating with chopsticks which was a challenge for some but still great fun!

The Beavers also covered various badge work such as their International, Cook & Healthy Eating.
They all had a wonderfully interesting and educational international evening and thanked the Leaders and Norman, then said a Chinese good night, “Zàijiàn” to everyone.
