We always carve at least one Jack ‘O Lantern in October. We never let the seeds go to waste though. We roast pumpkin seeds and eat them instead. These never last long in our house.
Planting Seeds of Kindness Theme
Several years ago I attended a Cub Scout Pow Wow session on neckerchief slide crafts. They showed us a number of ways to make neckerchief slides from various materials.
This is a gathering activity I made to go with the Planting Seeds of Kindness theme. These are blank coloring sheets for making compliment cards. The Cub Scouts can color them. Then they cut them apart and give them to people they would like to compliment.
I needed a couple of activities for a recent meeting based on the Planting Seeds of Kindness theme. So one thing we did was make kindness fortune tellers (also known as cootie catchers.)
This is a ceremony about kindness which I wrote to go with the Planting Seeds of Kindness theme. It is based on a ceremony for compassion from the old program helps.
Trail mix recipes are abundant. Basically, anything which holds up well in a ziploc bag can be used. I always enjoy seeing different combinations to get new ideas. This recipe is for the sunflower seed enthusiasts.
