Then, season the seeds with your favorite spices. Bake them in the oven until they are golden brown and crispy. Enjoy this simple and tasty treat!

Enjoy these spooky treats with your friends and family!

Crew Costume Party Ideas

A costume party is always a fun activity for teens. A Venturing Crew will enjoy a costume party. To make the party even more exciting, encourage the crew members to come up with creative and unique costume ideas. They can dress up as their favorite movie characters, historical figures, or even mythical creatures. Set up a costume contest with different categories such as “Most Creative Costume” or “Best Group Costume.” Provide prizes for the winners to make it more competitive and rewarding. This will not only bring the crew members together but also add a memorable and enjoyable element to their Halloween celebrations.

A Halloween theme in Scouting can offer a mix of fun and educational experiences for Scouts of all ages. It allows leaders to incorporate activities that are not only engaging but can also teach valuable skills. For example, crafting spooky decorations can be a lesson in creativity and teamwork, while games like “Bobbing for Worms” can introduce elements of bravery and dexterity. Songs and skits add a layer of entertainment and group cohesion. Overall, a theme can make for an enjoyable and enriching Scouting event.
