This silly 911 song is a favorite on the playground. Yes, it involves crashing into trees, ambulance rides, blood, and the word cops.
These are a family recipe. As kids we called them “snowball cookies” because that is what they look like – small ball shaped cookies rolled in powdered sugar. My mom always called them Russian tea cakes.
Kim Gilbert of Pack 533 in Andover, Kansas sent me this take on ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas so I could share it with you. Thanks Kim! I’m sure many of the Cub Packs out there will enjoy this.
My kids always enjoy making these cookies. They are called forgotten cookies because you put them in a hot oven, turn it off, and then forget about them until the next morning.
This an audience participation story about the cold winter when Paul Bunyan found Babe the Blue Ox. A few words and names are repeated throughout the story. Your audience will be divided into groups and assigned a word or name. Whenever they hear it, they must say something – loudly and with enthusiasm – and do an action. Cub Scouts usually enjoy these “action stories”.
Cub Scouts can make this craft to brighten up a holiday table. They can decorate the napkin rings any way they want.
