BSA provides a set of Tiger den meeting plans for Cub Scout den leaders. There are 16 basic meeting plan ideas and then some additional supplemental Tiger den meeting ideas. This is the third in the series of the supplemental tiger den meeting plans. It continues Tiger Elective 17 – Make a Model which was started at the previous meeting.

Preparation and Before the Meeting
Remind the Tigers and their partners to bring their partially completed Pinewood Derby cars to this meeting.
Start with a simple flag ceremony and Cub Scout Promise.
Keep this business short and sweet.
At this meeting, the Tigers will be painting and decorating their cars. Remind the parents that the Tigers should be allowed to choose how to decorate, even if it doesn’t look like what the parents envisioned. What is attractive and fun from the parents’ point of view might be different from what a Tiger Cub thinks a really cool car looks like.
For creative ideas see Getting Started in Pinewood Derby by Troy Thorne. There are some suggestions in the book which will make it easier for little hands to do the decorating themselves.
Keep it simple. Say the Law of the Pack.
After the Meeting
Everyone should help clean up. Arrange a place to meet next time.
