Wolf Den Meeting Plans – Even More Spare Time Fun
Preparation and Before the Meeting
Find a good location for your kite building and flying activity. A park with some picnic tables would be ideal. Get your kite flying supplies together and prepare for some fun!
Gathering, Opening, and Business
First talk about Wolf Elective 5a:
Explain safety rules for kite flying.
There is a good list of safety rules in the den meeting plan.
Next, make some kites for Elective 5b
Make and fly a paper bag kite.
Look in the Wolf Handbook for instructions. There are also some excellent step-by-step instructions for building paper bag kites from G-Kites. See the Lawrence Hall of Science for instructions for a lunch sack kite.
Once you have made the kites, go fly them.
Do a closing flag ceremony.
After the Meeting
The Wolves should clean up any mess from the kite building. And this is a good opportunity to line up some parents to help with the next meeting.
