BSA Tiger Supplemental Den Meeting Plan L – Feed the Birds

BSA provides a set of Tiger den meeting plans for Cub Scout den leaders. There are 16 basic Tiger den meeting plans and then some additional supplemental Tiger den meeting ideas. In this den meeting plan, the Tiger Cub Scouts will be making a bird feeder for Tiger Elective 32 – Feed the Birds

Tiger Den Meeting Ideas – Feed the Birds

Preparation and Before the Meeting

To prepare for this meeting, gather up your materials for the bird feeders. Since you will be using peanut butter, ask the adult partners about any allergies.

Gathering

See my gathering activities page for some ideas.

Opening and Business

Keep opening and business on track with Tiger Cubs. They have very short attention spans.

Activities

You will be making pinecone bird feeders and the garland feeders. Both are described in your Tiger handbook. It is nice to give them the option to make both if time permits.

The note at the top of the plan about peanut butter allergies is important. In one of my son’s dens, one of the Cub Scouts had a sibling who had a severe peanut butter allergy, so we always substituted for the peanut butter so he could take his projects home with him without fear of triggering his brother’s allergy.

Closing

Keep it simple. Say the Law of the Pack.

After the Meeting

There might be some mess after this meeting, so the Tiger Cubs should all help clean up. It is important to teach them early on that this is one of their responsibilities at every Scout meeting.
