Preparation and Before the Meeting
For preparation, you just need to have your meeting space and your supplies ready to go. This is a pretty simple meeting and not much is required.
The Pledge of Allegiance is always an appropriate opening for Tiger Cub Scouts.
Keep business to a minimum. Tigers will get restless if you do too much of it.
First work on elective 27:
Talk to your adult partner about what to do if these things happened.
- The adult who is caring for you becomes ill.
- You are alone with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable.
With a toy phone, or a disconnected phone, practice making phone calls and answering the telephone.
Check out these phone etiquette guidelines.
Next, you will makes some cards and fulfill elective 12
Make at least two cards or decorations and take them to a hospital or long-term care facility.
and elective 15
Mix the primary colors to make orange, green and purple.
Remind the Tigers to do elective 15 while making the cards.
Say a prayer for the people you will be giving the cards to. You could end with the Cub Scout promise.
After the Meeting
Everyone should help you clean up. Remember to enlist some adult help for the next meeting. And make arrangements to get the cards they made delivered to the nursing home.
