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.
