Oh you canny shove yer Granny aff a bus!

Scotland went well at Brownies, I think, ran out of time!

I took along my son's kilt (Mackenzie tartan, as you can see here) and talked a bit about who can wear the kilt, what true Scotsmen wear underneath it (in Son's case, a nappy as he was only one at the time) and what a sporran was for.

Then we:

  • Made kilts out of newspaper (they loved this - will definitely do making stuff from newspaper again)

  • Learned to say "ch" as in Loch Lomond

  • Learned to ask "Can you direct me to the nearest police station? The nearest police station is over there," in Glaswegian (Werra Polis? Erra Polis)

  • Taught them the song "You Canny Shove Yer Granny Aff a Bus"

  • Ate oat bread and smoked salmon and shortbread and Tunnocks Caramel Wafers (I did try for raspberries but the supermarket only had Spanish at this time of year)

  • Played Burns Supper (girls are each haggis, tatties or neeps, have to run round and back to space, last one each time is out)

  • Started to make a thistle out of card but ran out of time so sent those home with them.

They all seemed to have fun - just Wales to go now and we've completed the badge!
