Day 1

Your challenge for day 1 is a simple one (At least we hope it is!). Find your Scout Uniform and make sure it is clean and ironed (removing any lockdown dust!). You could even sow on any new badges you have received but haven’t sown on yet! (Such as your Kilimanjaro Adventure or Climate Quest Badge)

Need a new uniform? Check out the local Scout Shop leaflet here…

Day 2

Welcome to your second daily challenge! Todays challenge is to Complete a creative project about your favourite part of Scouting.

It could be about anything from your favourite games, to adventurous activites, or even camping! How you choose to do this creative project is also up to you! You could create a model, bake a cake, make a poster, or even film a video..

Day 3

Your challenge for Day 3 is to make a poster about how Easter is celebrated in another part of the world!

The country you choose is entirely up to you, and feel free to get creative!

Learning

Day 4

Your challenge for day 4 is to design and paint an egg, and then take part in an egg and spoon race. You could race your sibling or even your parents! If not you could time yourself to race a short distance and compare it to your friends’ attempts!

Creative

Day 5

Todays challenge is to go for a walk! Where you go and how far you walk is up to you, but make sure you follow your local covid guidelines…

While doing your walk why not sign up for Race to the Top by the 2022 Kilimanjaro Expedition team. You can create or join a team of 5 people from the same section and race to do the most laps of our Virtual Kilimanjaro befor St Georges day!

You will need to sign up for, or log into, the Kilimanjaro Adventure Challenge website and visit this link! (But be aware the link below will redirect you to the homepage if you have not logged in yet!) https://kilimanjaroadventure.sevenoaksscouts.org.uk/race-to-the-top/

You can keep checking back during the month to submit more walks, and dont forget to keep an eye on that leaderboard!

Day 6

For today’s challenge, we would like you to take a step into the kitchen and help to cook your family’s dinner tonight. If you’re fairly competent or would like more of a challenge then why not cook the whole meal yourself (with your parent’s supervision) and make sure to let us see your creations!

Why not head over to our events page and sign up for one of the many easter cooking sessions we have with Zoe from Shiny Kitchen where you can learn to cook some yummy meals!

As with all our daily challenges you don’t have to do them on the day they are released as long as they are sent in by the 23rd if you want a chance at one of the prizes… This means you can take part in one of the later cooking sessions if you cant get on today’s one!

This is a special Star activity, so the winner for today may receive a bigger prize!

Day 7

Let’s get active! For today’s challenge, you simply need to find a 5-minute exercise video online or make up your own and get your heart pumping! You can follow along to the ‘Campersize’ video on the Kilimanjaro Adventure Challenge website for inspiration.

Day 8

Hopefully after Easter you still have a few cardboard boxes or general recycling lying around. Why not put it to great use? Your task today is to make a simple boat or raft out of recycled materials and see if it floats. You can test this in a basin, bowl of water or even in a pond (but make sure you can retrieve it afterwards!).

Day 9

Learning to tie knots and lashings is a skill that becomes increasingly important as you work your way up the Scout sections, so it would be great if you can learn to tie a new one no matter what age you are. To get you started, you can watch the following video to show you how to tie a friendship knot (there are a few different ways).

This knot is often used by Scouts to secure the neckerchiefs, instead of a woggle – either because they’ve lost it – or because they’re worried they might. Friendship knots are often tied on neckercheifs at World Scout Jamborees when trading scarfs as a symbol of friendship.

Day 10

We should always be kind to our siblings/ parents, but today is extra special. It is siblings day! We are asking you to do a kind act for a sibling or parent and this can be big or small! Let them know how much they mean to you and maybe they will return the favour.

Good-Deeds

Day 11

As it’s the Easter holidays for the majority of you, a great way to stay active and get creative is to make your own obstacle course. Find a route around your house or garden and see how quickly it takes you to complete it! Can you challenge your parents or siblings to beat your time? Make sure to take care when completing this challenge! Let us know how you get on.
