Tiger Cub Big Idea #1
Need: 3’ x 5” cards for
everyone—put abbreviation of different states on the cards, there should be
several of each state used; i.e.: AL, WY. UT.
The amount needed depends on your pack meeting attendance.
When the leader yells “All Aboard: everyone rushes to get in a group
with their state.
Lucky Seven Shake
How Book of Cub
As one of the early numbers of a Den-family picnic, get
everybody into the spirit of the occasion by conducting this game.
Secretly provide one of the number with a liberal collection of candy.
Explain the game and start everybody shaking hands.
Ask those who have not met previously to introduce themselves.
The one who shakes hands, and he hands every seventh person one of the
candies. As soon as the children
discover the holder of the candies they gather around him or form a line.
That’s the signal for the adults to drop out of the game and watch the
handshaking proceed until the candy is exhausted.
Trains Matching Game
York Adams Area Council
up numbered pictures of different famous trains and hand out a list of the train
names (with clues, if necessary). Then let the folks try to match the pictures
to their correct names. The Internet has many museum and railroad enthusiast
sites with lots of beautiful color photos of different trains. It will take some
time to pull together clues that can be matched to the trains, but most of the
websites I visited have lots of information on the different photos. Also, it
would help to be able to print out the pictures in color.
