The core value for Cub Scouts for the month of December is respect. The program helps give this explanation of respect: “Showing regard for the worth of someone or something. Through interacting with pack families, Cub Scouts will develop appreciation and respect for different families and traditions. Through pack service projects, they will learn to treat the environment with care.”
So that gives us some general ideas. How can you incorporate this into your Pack meeting? Here are a few ideas:
- Make cards or ornaments for shut-ins. Or take your pack meeting on the road and go caroling at a nursing home.
- Do something nice for the environment and for the needy in your area. “Recycle” old coats by collecting them and donating them to a local agency.
- Work on one of the following from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program
- Have some speakers from different cultures come talk about their holiday traditions.
- Have everyone bring in holiday cookies. Let Cub Scouts buy tickets for a quarter each to vote for their favorite cookie. Let each den choose a charity. The proceeds from the tickets go to the charity chosen by the den the winner belongs to.
