ZM’s den is working on their Arrow of Light requirements. A lot of the requirements for Arrow of Light have to do with learning about Boy Scouts. So to make this more fun, I made up a set of picture bingo cards.
This file includes call cards with the descriptions of the pictures and 10 bingo cards. So I am going to pull out a call card, read the description, and the Webelos will try to find the corresponding picture on their bingo card. This will require them to listen! (My den doesn’t always excel at that skill.)
The pictures are things like the points of the Boy Scout Law, the parts of the Scout badge, different Boy Scout leadership positions, Boy Scout ranks. Not all of these are required for the Arrow of Light, but the idea is just to give the Webelos exposure to some of the things which are different in Boy Scouts.
Boy Scout Picture Bingo Instructions
- Cut the call cards apart
- Give each player one of the Boy Scout picture bingo cards.
- Give each player a way to mark the spaces on the cards. Pennies or some other small tokens will work.
- Place the call cards in a small container.
- Pick one of the call cards at random.
- Read the clue call card.
- If the player has the corresponding Boy Scout picture on his card, he covers the space on the card with his marker.
- Continue drawing clues and marking cards in this manner.
- When a player has covered a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row, he shouts “Bingo!”
- Check the pictures in the covered row against the clues you called so far to make sure the player did not incorrectly cover any of the pictures. If the player really has a row covered, he wins that round.
