Tiger Big Ideas 16 & 17
York Adams Area
Have different stations set up outside for the pardners to test
out their “riding” skills. These
might include barrel racing, ribbon racing with a pardner, keyhole racing,
etc. For more information on
what these events are (in real life), see the Gymkhana website <see in
the back under web sites>. You
can also add other rodeo fun ideas such as twirling a lasso, lassoing a
post, etc. This can also be
used as a regular game during a Pack Meeting.
Horse of A Different Color
York Adams Area
pictures of different horse breeds tacked (pun intended!) around the room.
Give out papers with the names of the different horses and clues that
would help to identify the different breeds.
(Decide how much of a give-away this needs to be and build the clues
around this. I wouldn’t expect Cub Scouts from Valentine, Nebraska, to
be given anything but a blank sheet of paper; but the Cub Scouts from
downtown NYC would probably need coaching that there are different horses
besides the ones the officers in Central Park ride.)
One Word Anagram
anyone can rearrange the letters in the words “new door” to make one
word. Give everyone a chance to
try and then write on a blackboard: O-N-E W-O-R-D.
everyone a pencil and paper when they arrive.
Tell them to “Go forth” and get acquainted with 20 people, to ask
them their names, and to write them on their paper.
When all have their 20 names, ask everyone to tear them off and give
each slip of paper to the person whose name is written.
Check up to see how many can rid themselves of all their names.
pictures (magazine illustrations, advertising pictures, postcards, etc.)
into a number of pieces. Pass
these out as people arrive and ask everyone to complete his puzzle, thereby
forming discussion groups.
cards which have been written one word of common pairs such as “Jack”
and “Jill,” “ham” and “egg,” etc.
Have as many cards as needed. Ask
every one to match up his card and introduce himself to the person holding
the mate to his card. Some
other combinations are:
Eve, Amos and Andy, Army and Navy, Black and Blue, Bread and Butter, Over
and Under, Cats and Dogs, Coat and Vest, Comb and Brush, Cup and Saucer, Day
and Night, Down and Out, Fine and Dandy, Gilbert and Sullivan, Sweet and
Sour, Hit and Run, Horse and Buggy, House and Lot, In and Out Up and Down,
Knife and Fork, Liver and Bacon, Mutt and Jeff, North and South, East and
West Pork and Beans, Salt and Pepper
Yes or No
that no one is to say “yes” or “no”. Then give half of the group 10
peanuts and the rest 10 beans. Allow
every one a specified time in which to collect counters by obtaining one
from each person who answers “yes” or “no” to any question.
The one with the largest number wins.
