Preparation and Before the Meeting
Your preparation will involve arranging for an appropriate location where the Wolves can work with tools. You will also need to gather up the hand tools and supplies beforehand. Note the warning in the meeting plan: “Note: Power tools are not appropriate for use by Cub Scouts.”
Gathering, Opening, and Business
The focus of this meeting is making the bench fork and door stop. The plans are in your Wolf handbook. This fulfills elective 3c:
Make and use a bench fork
They will also do elective 3d:
Make a door stop
The meeting plan mentions that you might need additional activities for this meeting and suggests doing something from Wolf Achievement 1 – Feats of Skill. Or you could play any game. See my games page for ideas.
Do a closing flag ceremony.
After the Meeting
The Wolves should help clean up the area and put away the supplies. Line up some adults to help out at the next meeting.
