The Cub Scout core value for the month of February is Resourcefulness. BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Litter to Glitter related to this core value. The Litter to Glitter meeting plan features ideas for the core value of resourcefulness – games, group activities, songs, and more.
For more ideas for use with this program theme, see the Litter to Glitter page.
The core value of Resourcefulness should still be the focus for the month. Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with February’s core value of Resourcefulness:
Resourcefulness is using resources to their fullest. Part of being resourceful is learning not to be wasteful and to recycle items to make something new and wonderful from something old. Used items can also be repurposed, or used for something other than their original purpose. One example is using an empty tissue box to store recyclable plastic grocery bags that you can then use as wastebasket liners. By being resourceful we also help take care of our planet by converting litter we have into useful objects, thus turning litter into glitter.
