With Memorial Day approaching, it might be time to review how to raise and lower the United States flag. These are some basic rules for raising and lowering the US flag.
Cub Scout Themes
The Forces of Flight game would make a fun addition to a pack meeting for the Soaring the Skies Cub Scout theme. Use this game when the Cub Scouts have been sitting for too long and need to get up and move around.
First aid baseball is a fun way to review first aid skills with Scouts BSA and Webelos. There are instructions for the game and a set of question cards included in the printable file.
Heres another silly song for you. This works well at Christmas (because of the tune) or at camp (because of the theme).
This silly song is a favorite with my sons. Yes, it involves crashing into trees, ambulance rides, blood, and the word cops. But it seems to be the type of song kids enjoy singing. Don’t ask me why.
Flip the Bird tag is an active game which is a combination of tag and keep away. In it, a players work together to keep their friends from being tagged.
Basic instructions for a very simple closing flag ceremony. This simple closing flag ceremony is appropriate for a den, pack, or other meeting.
This month I am featuring the Cultural Awareness Troop Program Feature for Scouts BSA.

This works well for this purpose since it doesn’t require much equipment and additional Scouts can join in as they arrive.

Even as winter approaches and it gets to cold for the Cub Scouts to get out tent camping, we can still get them outdoors on a day hike. Make sure your Cub Scouts know the 10 Outdoor Essentials.
