Cub Scouts Give Thanks - November Theme - LDS Religious Square Knot info - LDS Activity Days - Writing a Thank You note


Cub Scouts Give Thanks - November Theme

Thanks to Mary Halvorson for donating this idea. She is a Webelos Den Leader from Pack 68 of the Hobble Creek District, Utah National Parks Council.  

One of the requirements in the LDS Faith in God booklet that counts towards the BSA Religious Square Knot reads: "Write a letter to a teacher, your parents, or your grandparents telling them what you appreciate and respect about them." If you want to take this a step further by teaching boys how to address an envelope it's an experience you won't forget. Do they know their own address for a return address? Do they know where to write both the mailing address and the return address? Do they know where the stamp goes? Do they know their city and state? The first time I did this I thought it was a no brainer but truly the first experience for most of them. It will take longer than you think but the recipient will have a wonderful surprise!

SKIT - THE GHOST WITH THE BLOODY FINGER -HALLOWEEN SKIT


SKIT - THE GHOST WITH THE BLOODY FINGER
This skit was published in the September 2011 issue of Baloo’s Bugle.

The great thing about this Cub Scout skit is its flexibility with the number of participants. You need a narrator, a ghost, and a Cub Scout. You can use as many of the following characters as you want. If you only have 4 or 5 boys, use only that many. If you have more than 12, pair them up so that you have 2 pumpkins, 2 spiders, etc.

Jack-o-lantern/Pumpkin
Spider
Vampire
Black Cat
Skeleton
Werewolf
Bat
Frankenstein
Mummy
Zombie
Owl
Witch/Warlock

Narrator: One night a ghost was out walking, and he met a jack-o-lantern.
Ghost: “I am the ghost with the bloody finger!”
Jack-o-lantern: Screams, and runs away.
Narrator: “Next the ghost met a spider.”
Ghost: “I am the ghost with the bloody finger!”
Spider: Screams, and runs away.
Narrator: “Next the ghost met vampire.”
Ghost: “I am the ghost with the bloody finger!”
Vampire: Screams, and runs away.

Continue for as many characters as you need.

Narrator: “Then the ghost met a Cub Scout.”
Ghost: “I am the ghost with the bloody finger!”
Cub Scout: “Well, put a band-aid on it!”

ORIGINAL Cub Scout Webelos and Arrow of Light PRINTABLE Record Tracking and Organization Work Sheet for the New Program - Free - Arrow of Light requirements to help Leaders and Parents



Thank you to Annaleis for updating this tracking sheet on Sept 18, 2017.  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 Webelos and Arrow of Light 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 Annaleis Smith from the Utah National Parks Council who shared this tracking sheet with us.
