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.

Let me tell you about Akela's Council.  It's a feeling, not a place.  It's a sharing of knowledge with another.  It's learning and fun with scouting as it's base.  It's the spirit of the campfire, so take my hand, I'll help you see.  It's just around the corner of your mind and underneath a tree.

Eagle Scout Award Invitation or Eagle Scout Award Program Printable Idea that looks like a Scout Neckerchief for their Court of Honor



I had a mother contact me about my Boy Scouts of America Blue & Gold Banquet Invitations. She asked if she could have me change it into an Eagle Scout Program. I thought it turned out great so I wanted to share it with you! You could also use it for an Eagle Scout Invitation.  I am including the PDF below.  All you need to do is to add your own wording.

Once again, I would like to say a big thank you for this version donated by Pack 703 from Mansfield, Texas.  THANK YOU for this amazing piece of art and your willingness to share it with others free of charge.  I had added my version to this blog, and then Pack 703 came up with this Blue & Gold invitation I have slightly modified to make it an Eagle Invitation. 




On the front it says...
Eagle Scout Court of Honor
March 9, 2014
Joseph Christian Cox & Marcus Gerhard Sandberg

Presentation of the Colors – Troop 188
Welcome – Kathy Jo Pfiefer
Introductions of Eagle Candidates – Chris Dodge & T.A. Rosko
Lighting of the Eagle Trail – Stephen Francis & Darin Rohlf

Retiring the Colors – Troop 188

Dessert


On the back it says...
We would like to thank our Scout Leaders,
 our Troop, our Friends and Family
for their guidance and support. 
Your help made achieving
 the Eagle Scout rank possible.
-Joe & Marcus


The desire to soar to greater heights,
The freedom to choose one’s own path,
Integrity and honor
Feather these wings.

I tried printing them on different papers, and the one above I printed on a white with speckles paper.  I really kind of liked the look!


I also added 3 circle logos to the bottom of the invitation.  You can choose the one you like, and cut it with a 1 1/2 inch hole punch and tape it to the front of the program.

Grass Heads are a great way to teach Cub Scouts about Growing Seeds - Theme Planting Seeds of Kindness



We had such a fun time making these Grass Heads with our Cub Scouts last year for the Cub Scout Theme Planting Seeds of Kindness.  It is a great way to teach Cubs about growing seeds.  We gave each boy a cup that already had dirt in it, seeds for him to plant, and the PDF below of lots of faces - eyes, noses, mouths, and shoes.  They grew their Grass Heads for the month and then brought them to Pack Meeting.  We displayed all of them on a table.  It was SO fun!  They all looked different, and we let any siblings that wanted to grow Grass Heads do it also.  It was so fun to watch them grow during the month.  These are a lot like Chia Pets, but much easier.  You could see the roots growing right inside the cups!  I hope you enjoy doing these with your Cub Scouts.
