Den Meeting Plan – Marbles Belt Loop

This meeting plan covers all of the requirements for the Marbles belt loop for the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program. I am going to use this den meeting plan to help my Webelos earn their Sportsman activity badge, but it makes a fun den meeting at any of the age levels for Cub Scouts.

I have included some basic rules for Ringer. There are house rules and other variations which can be added. The rules I use are very simple rules to make it easy for Cub Scouts to learn the game. Traditionally, there are two players, but you can let up to six beginners play together.

    Indoor alternative to create circles – I just put down masking or painters tape on our living room carpet. Tape must be ‘stretched’ a little to create a circle.
