Soil Sample Cupcakes Recipe: Here is a classic recipe if you are working on Bear elective 15 – Water and Soil Conservation. Scouts always enjoy playing with their food! This would actually make a nice snack for any den meeting based on one of the ecology lessons – Your Living World for Wolves or Webelos Naturalist, for example.
Webelos Badge Scramble Puzzle: I am going to go over some of the requirements for the Webelos badge with my den at our next meeting. We’ll use this word scramble puzzle as a gathering activity. It is based on the requirements for the Webelos badge.
Rumor has it that BSA will be rolling out an Abracadabra theme for January’s core value of Positive Attitude some time in the near future. So this month I am going to highlight some ideas to go along with that magic based program theme also. This was one of the Cub Scout monthly program themes a few years back, so I’ll dig through my old notes to find what I saved.
Corn on the Cob 4 ears of shucked corn ¼ cup butter or olive oil Parmesan cheese ½ teaspoon dried rosemary leaves salt and pepper 4 ice cubes Place the ears of corn on a large sheet of foil. Spread the butter on top. Sprinkle with the seasonings and Parmesan cheese. Put the ice cubes on top. Wrap up into a tent pack. Place on hot coals and cook for 20 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
Every month, Cub Scouts focus on a core value. The core value for the month of May is Health and Fitness. Along with the regular pack meeting plan for this core value, BSA also plans to release a Cub Cafe theme. It will probably focus on cooking, like the old Cub Cafe theme did.
