Glimpse of the Sun with Scouts

After many straight weeks of rain and winds, the sun finally made an appearance last weekend. Thankfully, it coincided with a very casual scout outing I had planned to celebrate the start of spring break.

I popped up popcorn to put into paper lunch bags, packed some percussion instruments and off the troop went to run about together on the trails of Near Island.

There was no patch work done, no big plans…aside from enjoying the warmth and the sun. With the percussion instruments we made some simple rhythms together; what does happy sound like? How about rainy? Windy?

We mimicked each others made up rhythms and passed the little egg shakers and maracas around the circle. Lots of smiles from the scouts as we made simple music together.

Fun times with troop #118
