Spell Pocket
Denver Area Council

On a sheet of paper, spell out the word 'pocket'. Using these letters, have everyone list items that you find in a pocket.


P: paper, ping pong balls, pencils, etc.

O: old candy papers, odd buttons, etc.

C: candy, cards, etc.

K: keys, kite string, etc.

E: envelopes, egg, etc.

T: trucks, tinker toys, etc.

Guessing Game
Northwest Suburban Council

Equipment: 5 small coins or buttons for each person

Each person is given 5 small coins or buttons and places them in their pocket. Divide into pairs and stand facing each other. Then each pair puts their hands into their pockets simultaneously and brings out so many of the coins or buttons. Placing their fists in front of each other, they must guess how many objects they have between them. The one nearest the correct number goes into the next round, and so on until you find an eventual winner.

Clothespin Mixer
Northwest Suburban Council

Equipment: Clip-on clothespins - 3 or 4 for each person

Give everyone 3 or 4 clothespins. Tell them that the object of the game is to get rid of their clothespins without having anyone else pin THEIR clothespins on them. With everybody trying to get rid of his or her clothespins at the same time, as fast as possible, this is a rowdy and fun way to start a meeting.

Trapper Trails Council

For a gathering activity, print onto cards several tasks to be done in order around the yard. These things could relate to the Achievement you're working on this week. There could be exercises to do, say the Cub Scout Promise to a leader, go find 5 green things, run around the tree and back, etc. Or the chart could hold the agenda for the day with assignments of who will help do uniform inspection, or flag ceremony, etc.
