Welcome to the sixth week of me searching other blogs to find cool Cub Scout ideas for you to enjoy. Just when I think there is nothing good out there to post, I find three great ideas in one day. Hurray!
I was so excited when I saw this first post from Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational. This was the activity I did for the first Scout meeting I ever ran. I was so nervous being with this group of boys who I barely knew and expected to teach them Cub Scout stuff when I was never even a Girl Scout. Overall this tactile guessing game was very successful and the boys even asked if they could play it again at the next meeting! For all the details, click the link above.
Do you know what Geocaching is? If not, you need to check out this feature from Ready or Not. She even has a video! I discovered Geocaching-imagine a big kid treasure hunt- at Cub Scout day camp last year. I loved it and totally monopolized the session, asking the guide a million questions. If you want to know what I want for my birthday, I desperately want want of these GPS doohickeys pictured below.
Going Geocaching, which also involves the use of a compass, can partially fulfill requirements for the Hiking Belt Loop and Map and Compass Belt Loop & Pin.
My LDS and Other Projects blog has a super idea for a Bear den meeting. Wendy provides special instructions for Achievement 17e, letter writing that I think every Scout would enjoy. The picture below will give you a clue but you have to click on her site for the full details.
Thanks for visiting Scout Mom.
