Beavers dressed up as their favourite minature heros
Just add chocolate for an awesomely exciting beaver night? Beavers stunned in fantastic Miniature Heros inspired fancy dress costumes, some dressing as the sweets themselves, while others as their favourite comic book hero.

As beavers arrived for the night, a glorious world of chocolate was waiting... Willy Wonka would have been proud and the hall could have been mistaken for a scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The first chocolate creation of the night was Miniature Hero Crispy Cakes, and beavers couldn't have been more excited as leaders helped them to create confectionary heaven.

As well as Crsipy Cakes, beavers tried their hand at making chocolate frappucinos (or frappes for short). Frappes are made by blending fruit juice, coffee, or in this case chocolate with ice to make a refreshing (and freezing cold) drink.

Beavers favourite activity was of course the chocolate fondue where they enjoyed covering marshmallows in lovely melted chocolate.

Photos from Beavers miniature hero adventure are now in the photos zone.

Beavers at Oxclose enjoy playing games, making friends, and exploring the world around them. The colony has a busy programme and is looking forward to it's first sleepover of 2013. You can download a copy of Beavers @ Oxclose's programme here.
