BSA Wolf Den Meeting Plan 9 - Tools for Fixing and Building This Wolf Cub Scout den meeting plan covers Wolf Achievement 5 - Tools for Fixing and Building.
Book Review: Getting Started in Pinewood Derby I recently received a copy of Getting Started in Pinewood Derby by Troy Thorne. This colorful workbook goes through all of the steps involved in building a car. My favorite thing about the book is that it is directed at Cub Scouts - who should be doing most of the work on their cars.
Tin Can Lanterns Tin can lanterns make a very versatile craft project for Cub Scouts. You can make the holes in any pattern you like - a star for Christmas, a ghost for Halloween, a heart for Valentine's day. Webelos and Bears can probably do this project themselves with some adult supervision. Younger scouts will need more direct help from the adults.
Bicycle License Plate Craft This month I am featuring a cycling theme. If you are doing this theme with Cub Scouts, they might enjoy making their own "license plates" for their bikes. They can put their names on them or decorate them however they like.
Tic Tac Toe Game Project I thought this would make a good Craftsman project for my Webelos. We'll probably try this in December. They could make these and then give them to someone as a Christmas present.
Gourd Birdhouse Use dried gourds to make a birdhouse. If you didn't grow any yourself, you can probably find some in your area at a farmer's market or even a craft shop.
