It’s baseball season. If you are doing a sports theme with your Cub Scouts, why not make some baseball cookies?
Cubs in the Kitchen
Cub Scouts love to cook. They might need some help peeling and cutting the apples for this recipe, but they should be able to handle the rest of it with supervision. And they will love getting their fingers messy making the crumb topping.
Here is another Christmas cookie. These are not very sweet. ZM and LC like to sprinkle these with colored sugar before we bake them.
Since I am featuring a chess theme this month, I thought I’d suggest making a checkerboard cake which will look similar to a chess board when sliced as a snack to go along with this theme. One easy way to make a checkerboard cake is with a special checkerboard cake pan.
Just because it is too cold to go camping doesn’t mean that your Scouts can’t enjoy s’mores.
Here is a snack for your Cubs in the kitchen. This one is simple enough that they should be able to do most of it themselves.
A few years back, one of our son’s coaches had an end-of-season party for the soccer team. My husband likes to decorate cakes, so he made a soccer cake for the party. Since I am showcasing a soccer theme this month, I thought I’d share the idea with you.
BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Cub Cafe related to health, nutrition, and fitness. “As Cub Scouts, we are personally committed to care for our minds and our bodies. One way we care for our bodies is by what we feed ourselves. By choosing Cub Café as a theme, we can emphasize healthier choices, thus reinforcing our commitment to care for our bodies.”
Here is a “wheel shaped” snack to go with this month’s cycling theme. These are pretty easy to make and would be a good snack for a meeting. Younger Cub Scouts will need some help with these, but they are simple enough that they can do a lot of the recipe themselves.
Here’s an easy snack recipe for camp or for a den meeting. No cooking required!
