Wolf Den Meeting Plans –  More Make It Yourself

Preparation and Before the Meeting

Your preparation will involve arranging for an appropriate location where the Wolves can work with tools. You will also need to gather up the hand tools and supplies beforehand.  Note the warning in the meeting plan: “Note: Power tools are not appropriate for use by Cub Scouts.”

Gathering, Opening, and Business

See my Gathering Activities page for ideas for the gathering time. Do an opening flag ceremony.


The focus of this meeting is making the bench fork and door stop.  The plans are in your Wolf handbook. This fulfills elective 3c:

Make and use a bench fork

They will also do elective 3d:

Make a door stop

The meeting plan mentions that you might need additional activities for this meeting and suggests doing something from Wolf Achievement 1 – Feats of Skill. Or you could play any game. See my games page for ideas.


Do a closing flag ceremony.

After the Meeting

The Wolves should help clean up the area and put away the supplies. Line up some adults to help out at the next meeting.
