Cub Scouts learn to use the resources they have available. The program helps give this explanation of resourcefulness :
Using human resources and other resources to their fullest. Cub Scouts will gain the knowledge and the means to meet situations effectively whether they are working on a service project or completing a den activity.”
Here are some more ideas for incorporating resourcefulness into your Cub Scout program:
- These ideas could be incorporated into any building project. Have a “pack workshop” where you help the Cub Scouts work on craft achievements or on Pinewood Derby cars.
- If a workshop is too big a project for your Pack, how about a model fair? Cub Scouts could bring in models and display them. Check out my Tips for a Hobby Fair for some ideas.
- Work resourcefulness into a service project. Collect gently used books for a daycare center or homeless shelter. (Make sure you have a location which wants the books beforehand.)
- Talk about conservation and the importance of using our natural resources wisely. You could incorporate the Wildlife Conservation Belt Loop and Pin into the pack program.
