The Cub Scout core value for the month of March is compassion. Here is a brief Cubmaster minute to help Cub Scout understand the meaning of compassion.
Why not encourage our Scouts to take that unfilled space in their lives and turn it into something useful?
We have a new Tiger Cub den in our Cub Scout pack which does not have a Den Chief yet. So for his Scoutmaster Minute, my husband read the Den Chief Pledge and asked any of the Scouts who are interested in learning more about being a Den Chief to see him.
The core value for January for Cub Scouts is positive attitude. This Cubmaster minute uses a story about Gandhi to demonstrate what positive attitude means. You could even have a few den chiefs act this out while you tell the story.
One thing we have done in our troop which seems to motivate our Life Scouts a little is the Life to Eagle reports at every Court of Honor. Each Life Scout gets up in turn and tells what he has done since the last Court of Honor to try to advance and what he plans to do next on his path to Eagle.
