Cub Scout Wolf PRINTABLE Tracking and Organization Work Sheet for the New Program - Free - with Adventures and Cyber Chip and Award requirements to help Leaders and Parents





Is the new Cub Scout program scaring you as much as the rest of us?  It is going to be incredible for the boys.  They have put a lot of time into planning the new adventures and you will love it as soon as you can get your head around it.  We are all about making it easier for all Cub Scout Leaders and Parents.  We hope this new tracking sheet will help you as you start to navigate the new program.

Tracking, planning, and recognition are so important in Cub Scouts.  This new tracking sheet will help you be able to keep track of where each boy is at towards the Wolf, Adventures, and Cyber Chip requirements.  I like to print this tracking sheet on cardstock, and I print one sheet for each boy to be kept in my leader binder next to their tracking sheet for their Religious Award.  I keep a different tab for every boy with all the tracking sheets (Age Group & Religious Award).  Then I have complete information on each boy.  It helps to do it this way if you do one requirement one week and a different one other weeks.  Not every boy is there every week.  By doing this, I can always know where each boy is at, and it is all in one place.  I keep a roll, and next to the roll I write down what we did that week, and then every couple of weeks I update all the tracking sheets for every boy.  If the parents ever have questions, I always have a place to look back at on the roll, and I can always copy each tracking sheet to show them where their boy is.  Thanks to Jessika Vaupel from the Trapper Trails Council who shared this tracking sheet with us.

Cub Scout Paper Rockets shoot hundreds of feet in the air! Free Printable! Would be great to do as a Cub Scout Space Derby. Activity Days Paper Rockets





Paper Rockets are so fun to do with Cub Scouts!  Paper Rockets shoot hundreds of feet in the air and are easy for Cub Scouts to make and shoot themselves.

I love to use these to teach engineering to the Webelos.  When you make them with paper, the paper fins fall off pretty quickly.  When you make them with cardstock, they last longer, but the fins still have problems.  If you duct tape the back of the paper behind the fins before you roll the rocket, they are much stronger.  These kind of rockets spin around in circles as they fly.  When you don't cut the fins into the paper, but just add other cardstock fins, these rockets are the strongest of all.  I love to have them make each of them and then we talk about why each rocket performed and lasted how they did.  They love to spend the whole time fixing their rockets and adding to them.  I also like to have elmers glue, duct tape and hot glue to be used to glue things together.  This is also a learning experience on how things perform according to what is used to make them.  It is fun to see the boys add rocks right under the nose cone on the inside or duct taped to the outside to add weight.  It is all a science and engineering experiment so let them try different things!

How to Assemble the Rockets:
1.  Print these rockets on 24lb paper or cardstock.  I like cardstock because it makes it stronger and heavier.
2.  Cut 3 straight lines along the edge of the triangles at the bottom of the rocket.
3.  Roll paper around a PVC tube starting on the right side of this paper.
4.  Glue along the edge of the paper as you start, and at the end of the paper as you finish rolling.  At the end, use your finger to smear the glue in a wide stream so it does not all come out of the paper as you finish.
5.  Use a cloth to wipe across the rocket to take off the extra glue and also to hold it down.  Rub for at least 30 seconds while pushing hard.
6.  Insert a foam nose cone with hot glue, stuff it with tissue taped or hot glued in, or squish the top together and tape over the top.

** For the strongest and best rocket, don't cut the fins out before you roll it, but make other fins out of cardstock and glue those on.

Mother's Day Letter or Card


For Activity Days yesterday, we filled out these letters to our mothers, decorated picture frames, and took pictures of the girls.  We are going to get the gift bags ready and give them to the girls on Sunday to give to their mother's on Mothers' Day.  I thought this would work well for the Cub Scouts also, so I thought I would share.

Cub Scout Bear PRINTABLE Tracking Work Sheet #2

Above is a tracking sheet to be able to keep track of where each boy is on requirements towards the Bear, Bear Arrow Points, Progress Towards Rank beads, Gold and Silver Arrow Points, and Cub Scout World Conservation Award.  There is also a spot to track the dates they served as Denner or Assistant Denner.  I like to print this tracking sheet on cardstock, and I print one for each boy to be kept in my leader binder next to their tracking sheet for Bear, Webelos, Belt Loops, and Religious Award.  I keep a different tab for every boy with all 3 tracking sheets (Age Group, Belt Loop, Religious Award).  Then I have complete information on each boy.  It helps to do it this way if you do one requirement one week and a different one other weeks.  Not every boy is there every week.  By doing this, I can always know where each boy is at, and it is all in one place.  I keep a roll, and next to the roll I write down what we did that week, and then every couple of weeks I update all the tracking sheets for every boy.  If the parents ever have questions, I always have a place to look back at on the roll, and I can always copy each tracking sheet to show them where their boy is.
