This Tiger den meeting plan covers most of the requirements for the Games Tigers Play adventure. This meeting is all about having fun and cooperating. For the final requirement, the Tigers can go to a sporting event. Note that it does not have to be a professional sporting event. There is nothing wrong with completing this requirement by watching a third grade soccer game. #CubScouts #BSA #ScoutMeIn
Exercise and Physical Activity
Our pack might be doing a bike rodeo this year. I have visited these before, but we have never put one on ourselves. So I am researching possible “stations” which the kids can rotate through for the activity.
Before riding a bike, Scouts should know how to do an inspection of the bicycle and check that it is in working order. The checklist below will give you a good starting point. You will need to explain each step to the Scouts so they learn the terminology and why each part is important.
BSA has a list of bike safety guidelines on the Scouting.org site. The guidelines and procedures apply to all BSA unit, council, and national program activities involving bicycling.
The idea of this game is for each player to “use the force” to keep a balloon on a pool noodle light saber.
Here are some water bottle holder projects I came across recently. Scouts will want to keep their water bottles with them when they can carry them in a water bottle holder they made themselves.
This month I am focusing on cycling. If you are going to ride a bike, you’d better make sure it is in good repair first. You don’t want to be riding along and have your front wheel fall off or your brakes not work. I found a great website called How To Fix Bikes which offers all sorts of advice on – drum roll… – how to fix bikes!
This month I am focusing on cycling. Helmets are required for all BSA cycling activities. It is important to note that this applies to adults also. Your helmet isn’t going to do you much good if it doesn’t fit correctly. Here are some guidelines.
The core value for Cub Scouts for the month of May is Health and Fitness. According to the program helps health and fitness is:
Being personally committed to keeping our minds and bodies cleanand fit.Cub Scouts will learn that it is important and easy to eat a healthy diet and how a fitnessprogram can be part of their daily routine.
The Soccer and Scouting program seeks to bring the values of Scouting to boys who might not be currently involved in a Cub Scout program. It is a 12 week program for boys in the 1st through 5th grades.
