Our Venture Crew is having a costume party tonight. JD is responsible for planning the activities. I’ve asked him for a general idea of what will be happening.
Holiday Ideas for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers
Some holidays are fun and exciting. Others are solemn. Holidays bring us together to celebrate our common heritage. They can also teach us about other cultures. When a holiday is approaching, think about adding some holiday fun to your Pack, Troop, or Crew program.
You could count this for Bear requirement 9b: With an adult, make snacks for the next den meeting. It isn’t the healthiest thing in the world, but it probably a little better than the bags of chips or ding-dongs the parents used to send for our den when we had our meetings right after school.
Duty to God is an important part of Scouting, so don’t forget to say grace at Scouting events. This is a non-denominational grace which would be appropriate at any meal.
What’s the best way to get a picky eater to have a healthy snack? Make it funny!
If your Webelos or Boy Scouts are working on first aid requirements, you can add in some fun by making a fake wound on a “victim” or two.
A snack made with crackers and pretzels. This recipe does not require any cooking, so it can be made at a meeting even if you don’t have access to a kitchen.
Making a terrarium is a great springtime activity. Plus – it reuses a plastic soda bottle, which is great for starting a discussion about Earth Day approaching.
