GATHERING ACTIVITIES

Note on Word Searches, Word Games, Mazes and such – In order to make these items fit in the two column format they are shrunk to a width of about 3 inches.  Your Cubs probably need bigger pictures.  You can get these by copying and pasting the picture from the Word version or clipping the picture in the Adobe (.pdf) version and then enlarging.  CD

Sticker Stalker

Santa Clara County Council

Give each person that arrives a pack/sheet of 10 stickers. The object of this game is to get rid of all your stickers by sticking them on the other guests (One sticker per guest). However, if the guest you are "stickering" catches you, he/she gets to stick one of his/her stickers on you. If you are "caught", you must temporarily take your sticker back, and you can try to sticker that same person later (at your own risk). But if someone falsely accuses you of "stickering" him/her, then you can automatically put one of your stickers on that person. The first one to get rid of all 10 of their original stickers is the winner!

Roundup

Baltimore Area Council

Upon entering the Pack meeting place, guests are handed cards bearing a particular cattle brand, (Number of brands issued depends on size of Pack.) Each group of brand cards contains one brand card with the extra notation “cowboy.” It is the duty of the designated “cowboys” to “round up” the stray cattle in a particular area of the meeting place. Until the cattle are gathered, they are bawling and mooing. The noise stops when the cattle are placed safely within their own corral.
