Have you ever been a fishing

Turkey in the Straw
Have you ever been a-fishing on a bright and sunny day
With all the little fishies swimming in and out the bay
With their hands in their pockets
And their pockets in their pants
All the little fishies do the fishy-wishy dance

Singing la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
With their hands in their pockets
And their pockets in their pants
All the little fishies do the fishy-wishy dance.

Actions:


Time: 10 minutes
Equipment: pre-boiled eggs; curry powder; mayonnaise; bowl; fork; teaspoon
Purpose/Topic: Maritime environment
AoPG: Physical, Social

Set the Joey Scouts to peel the eggs. Place the egg in the bowl. Mash with the fork. Add 1/4–1/2 teaspoon of curry powder, and 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise. Mash further, until the curry powder and mayonnaise are properly mixed through.
Eat.


Time: 15 minutes
Equipment: alfoil; tortilla; cheese/ham/onion/tomato/other savoury fillings; chocolate chips/banana/marshmallow/honey; oven; plate
Purpose/Topic: Nautical history and traditions
AoPG: Physical, Social

Pre-chop/grate all fillings. Tear large squares of alfoil (each one should be a little larger than the tortilla).
Joey Scouts collect a piece of alfoil and a tortilla. They scatter a selection of sweet or savoury ingredients over the tortilla. They fold the tortilla in half with the alfoil around it, and seal it by scrunching the alfoil.
When sealed, place the parcels in the oven to cook. (If you are cooking a large number, you may wish to write the Joey Scouts’ names on the alfoil in sharpie.)
After they have cooked for a short time, remove the parcels from the oven, and place on plates. The Joey Scouts can unwrap their parcel, and eat their Ration Pack.

Equipment: celery; cream cheese; sultanas; plate; sharp knife; cutting board; butter knife

Get the Joey Scouts to cut the celery into short lengths (about 5cms). Use the butter knife to fill the celery with cream cheese. Press two or three sultanas into the cream cheese. Place on a plate.
Eat.
