Tiger Cub

Not even sure where to begin, but this year I began my journey as Tiger Cub Leader!  It has been a lot of fun and we have a great group of boys.  Luckily, they put up with my activities as we made our way through the handbook!

We started off the year with a relay race with the parents to learn the Cub Scout Promise.  The boys had to run, grab a strip and glue it on the correct spot.  The parents were there to help glue and read, if necessary.  After each strip, they had to run back and grab another one until complete.  The boys had fun and it was a great way to get some energy out!

Here are some of the highlights:
We did a nature walk and collected leaves for leaf rubbing, played pass the balloon with their elbows, collected food for a food drive, went to a car museum, bank, bakery, police station, movie theatre, spent the night at the Academy of Science in San Francisco, and went camping.  We took and developed photos along the way for the boys to put together a scrap book of their Tiger Cub Year.

And my personal favorite...
the shrinky dink neckerchief for the Pine Wood Derby.  I traced the image using a Sharpie, the boys colored with colored pencil.  We placed them in a toaster oven for a few minutes during the meeting.  The boys were amazed to see them shrink.  I hot glued them onto small pieces of PVC pipe.  They were the perfect touch to their exciting Pine Wood Derby.

We will finish the year with a scavenger hunt at the park.

Valentines Day 2015

 I always love the marble art because the kids have fun making it and it always turns out beautifully! We sent this one to grandma.
 I was informed today that my son is expecting a heart hunt.  Check out what we've done in the past:   For my 2 year old class, I scattered hearts on the ground and they collected them.

Hope your day is filled with love!

Pasta, Puddles, and Pajamas

We had the most productive rainy day!   The boys helped make home-made pasta.

Rory strung pony beads onto pipe cleaners to make Valentine bracelets.  Shay melted chocolate to make mustashe lollipops for his class Valentines.
And the day ended with a walk in the rain with puddles.
