Most Cub Scouts know all about their favorite baseball team. Why not have a baseball themed meeting then? Cub Scouts can learn about honesty while doing activities related to America’s pastime. BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Play Ball related to this value. The Play Ball meeting plan features ideas for the value of honesty – games, group activities, songs, and more.
Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with the value of honesty:
It is easy to forget how important it is to be honest when one is playing a game and really wanting to win; however, a Cub Scout is a person who always tells the truth and is worthy of trust. This month we reinforce how important it is to be honest, especially when playing baseball with friends.
