A Crafty Celebration for Diwali

This year, Diwali fell on our meeting night. Between Remembrance Day program and Diwali themed program, we felt that since we do our own program as close to Remembrance Day as possible that we would do something fun for Diwali.

Cub Car Camp

Cub cars – probably one of the longest standing traditions of every Cub Scout’s experience in the last 50 years or so. I love how a simple block of wood can be transformed into a hot rod or a banana – it all depends on how creative the Cub is (or, isn’t). My first group I was a Cub Scouter with spent 7 weeks making Cub Cars. From January into March it was nothing but Cub Cars. We always had to be prepared for the one youth that missed the last week’s meeting to catch up. The group didn’t see a point in sending the cars home as next to none of the families had the tools needed to transform the wood. Normally a kit would go home and never return.

Irish Soda Bread

Teamwork. Communication. Accuracy. Math. Googy-grossness. Coordination. Critical Thinking. Fun. What better way to wrap all that up into one package than to bake something?

Snow Globes

Snow globes for Cub Scouts

Don’t want to decorate ornaments this year? Want to do something a little more fun and sparkly? Why no make a snow globe?

Kub Kars

It’s Kub Kars Season! It’s Kub Kars Season!

Hey Cub Scouters! It’s Kub Kars Season!

Well, not yet, but it’s only a few months away. But that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead and think about how to get our Kub Kars done now.

SCOUTER DOWN!

Cub Scout First Aid KitNovember 20th Meeting – Cub Scout First Aid

The very first night I was with the Pack, we asked 2 teams to make up skits of what they wanted to do this year. One of the skits showed a youth getting hurt and the other Cubs helping before the hurt Cub went to the hospital. I don’t know about you, but that to me says First Aid night.
