Space the New Frontier (Webelos Traveler, & Artist)


Space Dinner
Viking Council

This is a fun treat for den meetings. Sort a bag of M&M's by color into small dishes. Toward the beginning of the meeting, tell a story about your "trip" while the Cubs each prepare their own meal:

Two brown M&M's are the meat.
One yellow M&M's is corn.
One green M&M's is the salad.
One orange M&M's is an orange.
One more brown M&M's is a piece of bread.

Cubs place all their "space food" into a plastic ziploc bag, and put it into their picket for later on the trip.

At snack time, Cubs eat slowly and enjoy their wonderful feast. Put 1/4 cup of water into their bag when it's empty. Cubs have to bite a hole in the corner to drink it.

Astronaut pudding

Need: pudding mix, milk, zip lock bags

Use 1 tablespoon of chocolate (or any flavor) instant pudding in a ziploc bag. Add 1/4 cup of milk. Close the bag. Squish up the pudding and milk mixture. Poke a hole in the bag and suck it out. Eat just like the astronauts with no utensils!!

Rocket Fuel
(definitely a Leader-Only drink)

Boil water. Add instant coffee to water, stir. Add one pack instant hot chocolate mix, stir. Add milk or sugar if needed for taste.

Note: At a recent camporee, I made this up during our crackerbarrel. Under NO circumstances drink this late evening. I was up until 3 a.m., thanks to the extra boost I got from all the caffeine in this Rocket Fuel.
