Use spring type clothespins. Paint them. Wings are made from construction paper, cut into symmetrical shapes. Slip wings into clothespins jaws and glue. Straight pins with colored round heads can be used for antennae.  Bumblebee uses a 1 ˝” Styrofoam ball or ping-pong ball cut in half and glued to top of clothespin. Pom poms can be used for eyes, paper clips can be used for legs, etc. OPTIONAL: Glue ˝” magnetic strip to back of clothespin and make into a refrigerator magnet for mom for Mother’s Day.


Tiger Games

Circle Ten Council


A tag game in which “it” is the scorpion and walks on his hands and one foot. “It” has to keep the other foot in the air. This is the stinger and “it” tries to tag the other players with his stinger.


Make 2 lines on the ground about 10 feet a part; the two opponents stand back to back between the lines. Both bend forward, reach between their legs and grasp each other’s wrists, they then start pulling each other towards their line.
