Big Idea #2 Family
Let the Tigers talk about things their family likes to do for entertainment. Practice the Tiger Promise, make up a den yell for pack meetings, go roller skating with all the Tiger families, go to a movie as a tiger family group. At your next Pack meeting give your den yell. Make Wax paper sun catchers.
Wax Paper Sun Catchers
Collect leaves, flowers, weeds and press them for a few days before the Tiger meeting in a large phone book. Tigers place leaves, flowers etc. on a sheet of waxed paper (about 12" square). The Tigers then make crayon shavings with an inexpensive plastic pencil sharpener. They sprinkle a few wax shavings between the flowers and leaves. Cover the wax paper with another sheet of wax paper. The DEN LEADER then uses an iron on medium setting to fuse the two pieces of wax paper together and melt the crayon shavings (works best if you put a piece of brown paper sack under the bottom piece of wax paper and another piece of the brown paper sack between the top piece of wax paper and then iron.)
Opening: Recite the Tiger Cub
The following idea (sent to me by Linda, Pack 5, North Providence, RI for Getting to Know You Big Idea) works for the Tiger themes I am covering in this issue: Family Entertainment and Making Your Family Special.
1. Find sticks during a short opening hike in the
yard of the meeting place.
Tigers have the spirit, Yes we do! Tigers have
spirit, How 'bout you?
Tiger Cub Scouts is our name
Big Idea #11 --Making you Family
Have each member of your family trace around their hand on stiff paper. Discuss how family hands are alike or different, how they do different jobs. Cut out hands and make them into faces. Glue the face on straw to make a puppet. Make up a skit and have the family act it out with their hand puppets.
