Cub Scout Gathering Activity – Cub Scout Promise Puzzle

Cub Scouts should know things like the Law of the Pack and the Cub Scout Promise. It is good to reinforce them by saying them at den and pack meetings. This Cub Scout gathering activity – a puzzle – can also be a good way to help Cub Scouts remember these.

This puzzle would make a nice gathering activity for Cub Scouts who know the Cub Scout Promise already, but have a little trouble remembering the whole thing.

This is a “falling letters” type puzzle. Imagine that the Cub Scout Promise was written on the puzzle, but then all of the letters fell off and are down below the puzzle. The letters belong in the column directly above them. The Cub Scouts should write them up there in the correct order. When they write a letter in the puzzle area, they should scratch it out below so they know it was already used.

A key is included, so if you can’t figure out how the puzzle works, it should be clear when you look at the key. If not, just post your question here.

    Hi, could you fill me in on what a falling letters puzzle is? Not sure how to do it or describe it to the kids.

      Pretend the letters have fallen from the puzzle above in a random order. So each letter must be placed somewhere in the column directly above it. When placed correctly, the letters will form the correct phrase – in this case the Cub Scout Promise. That is why the last column only has the O. There is only one box directly above it where it can be placed. The other columns have more letters though, so they will have to think about where each letter should be placed in the boxes directly above.

    Very cool! I had to download a (free) program to be able to open the page with the puzzle (and other pdf files) since I’m not using Windows, but it was worth it to have access to these neat activities and documents here and at the BSA site. Thanks again!
