BSA provides Wolf den meeting plans for Cub Scout den leaders. Today’s plan is a supplemental den meeting plan which gives Wolves the opportunity to do some activities related to nature. This plan continues to work on Wolf Elective 5 – Spare Time Fun. The Wolves will complete their Pinewood Derby cars, which were started in Meeting B. This meeting will focus on decorating the cars.
If you don’t already have the BSA den meeting plans, download BSA Supplemental Wolf Den Meeting Plan C to follow along with this article.
For an excellent resource for the design and building process, see Getting Started in Pinewood Derby: Step-by-Step Workbook to Building Your First Car. This step-by-step guide will help you with the process, but still keep the ownership of the design and tool work with the Scouts.
Wolf Den Meeting Plans – More Spare Time Fun
Preparation and Before the Meeting
Gather some supplies which the Wolves can use to decorate their cars – markers, stickers, etc.
See my gathering activities page for some ideas.
Keep business to a minimum.
Complete the Pinewood Derby cars for Elective 5:
Make or put together some kind of model boat, airplane, train, or car.
Build pinewood derby cars with each Scout.
Have some simple games ready for Wolves who finish early. See my games page for ideas.
Do a simple closing like the Scout Oath.
After the Meeting
The Wolves should help clean everything up. Working on the cars can be messy, but they can clean up and put things away.
