Note on Word Searches, Word Games, Mazes and such – In order to make these items fit in the two column format of Baloo’s Bugle 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 to page width.  CD

Find your way through this maze to connect the helmet with the bicycle.

One Smart Cat Says

Connect the dots to see what O.S. Cat wears every time he rides a bike

Bike Check:
Alice, CS RT Commissioner
Pioneer District, Golden Empire Council

Have everyone bring their bikes and check for proper size, good brakes; make adjustments and repairs.  (This is a great way to start off a Bike Rodeo)

Which Wheel Am I?
Alice, CS RT Commissioner
Pioneer District, Golden Empire Council

As people arrive at the Pack Meeting, tape one of the following on their back, without them seeing the name:  Bicycle, Skateboard, Scooter, Inline Skates.  Each person must locate others in the same name group by asking only Yes or No questions – or by making a noise that represents the wheel group they’re in.

What is it?
Alice, CS RT Commissioner
Pioneer District, Golden Empire Council

Mount an unlabeled picture of a bike on the wall – number each part of the bike, or block out the labels on a labeled picture.  As they enter, each person or family gets a sheet with a list of the parts of a bike.  They must decide which number goes with the part on their list.  Winner is the one with the most correct answers when the meeting starts.
