Meet A Tree
Where: Outdoors where there are trees
Group: 2 or more Tiger Cubs and partners
Blindfolds (one for each two kids). Make sure that a child is okay with being
Have the group pair off.
Have one the boys blindfold their partner and lead them through the forest to
any tree that attracts them. (How far will depend on your partner’s age and
ability to orient himself). For most, the distance of 20 to 30 yards usually
isn’t too far. Help the “blind” boy to explore his tree and to feel its
uniqueness. You will find that specific suggestions are best. Some examples
include: Rub your cheek on the bark.” “Is the tree still alive?” “Can you
put your arms around it?” “Does it have any unusual shapes or features?”
“Can you find plants growing on it?”
When the blindfolded
person is finished exploring the tree, his partner should lead him back to the
starting point over an indirect route and remove the blindfold. Now let the
boy find “his” tree without the blindfold. Suddenly as the boy searches for
“his” tree, the forest becomes a collection of very individual trees. After
the Tiger finds his tree, the roles can be reversed and do it again.

Here is an interesting
activity for Tigers and their Adult partners to do as they “hike” around a
local park or even the city block. You will need to copy this and enlarge the
type and expand the spaces.

Leaf Rub Book
Collection of leaves
Charcoal pen or crayons
Collect leaves from your yard or neighborhood
With the help of a reference book and your den leader, identify the leaves

Hole punch the pages and put them in a small loose-leaf notebook.
Make a cover page for the notebook and a cover page for inside the book.
This is an observation game. Divide the boys into two
teams. Give each team a dozen or more common articles-pencil, ball, card, toy
truck, Cub Scouting book, jackknife, paper clip, etc. Ask the teams to go to
opposite sides of the room and arrange their articles on the floor any way
they want as long as the items are six to twelve inches apart. A leader should
note the final arrangement of the articles on a sheet of paper.
Each team then goes to the other's team’s arrangement and
looks at it for exactly 1 minute. Then they gather up all of the articles,
return to their original place, and try to arrange the articles the same way
the other team had them. The team with the most articles placed in the correct

Instead we pollute it from smokestacks
