Hudson Valley Council has a great instructor for Cub Cuisine or Grub or as they say, “The Cub Gourmet”  After many requests, Barry has created a website -


Go visit and learn how to turn Twinkies into Pinewood Derby Cars, make Kitty Litter cake, Green Eggs and Ham, Puppy Chow, Brain Pudding and many more.  I hope to make this session next year!!

Learn about Operation E.D.I.T.H. (Exit Drill In The Home)  http://www.henriettafire.com/fire_prevention/op_edith.htm

http://familyfun.go.com - Run by Disney there are lots of ideas of things to do and large latchkey section where you can pivk up hints on figuring out if your child is ready and find things for them to do when they get home.

Great Web Sites to Surf When Home Alone:

Great Salt Lake Council

 disneykids.com   You open up into an amusement park of choices of things to do

school.discovery.com         Site is sponsored by the Discovery Channel.  There are lots of educational fun things to do

pbskids.org  - Obviously, the Public broadcasting site.  Barney, the Berenstain Bears, Clifford, Sesame Street and more

ahajokes.com        Thousands of clean jokes, funny pictures, cartoons, funny audio, funny videos, and more. Search for humor by keyword, by topic, or even by date! The kids section mentioned in the Great Salt Lake Council Pow Wow book is no longer there. And obviously, I did not read all the jokes but those I did were good for kids.  CD

www.coloringpages.net - lots of free pages to print and color – Winnie the Pooh, Disney, Santa, Scooby Doo, Bible

yahooligans.com – Yahoo’s web site for kids.  It looks fun but I would check this one out.  Ther are some music video links and other things that I don’t know where they go.

nrdc.org/greensquad           Kids working to make their schools greener, healthier places

ala.org  - The American Library Association web site.  Commissioner Dave was President of the Library Council in his High School!!  He almost went for a degree in Library Science instead of Engineering.

Great Salt Lake Council reported they got these sites by a search on “great kid web sites”
