    Walking Tacos Recipe: Here is a fun recipe for a hearty camp snack. Normally our Scouts eat before leaving for a campout on a Friday evening. If it is a long drive though, that might have been pretty early. By time they get to their destination and set up camp, they are very hungry. If the taco meat is cooked beforehand, they can put this together pretty quickly. And since it doesn’t require a lot of cleanup, they can make it late in the evening.

    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.

    Apple Crisp Recipe for Cub Scouts: Cub Scouts love to cook. They might need some help peeling and cutting the apples for this recipe, but they should be able to handle the rest of it with supervision. And they will love getting their fingers messy making the crumb topping.

My kids love creamsicles – the ice cream on a stick covered with orange flavored ice. We had some creamsicles and some black icing gel so we decided to have some Halloween fun with them. We made these Jack O Lantern creamsicles. This would be a fun snack/craft for a den meeting. You have to work fairly quickly so they don’t melt though, so I wouldn’t recommend it for a big group.

Maybe you are going camping and you need some ideas to make your campsite “spooky”. Whatever the case, here are some of my favorite ideas for Scouts from other websites. You can also  find my Halloween ideas on my Halloween page. A lot of these are best for Cub Scouts, but some would be fun for Boy Scouts and Venturers also.

Halloween Bingo Cards: If you are looking for a fun gathering activity for a den meeting or pack meeting around Halloween time, try these Halloween Picture Bingo Cards. The set includes 10 picture bingo cards with Halloween themed images. There is also a set of call cards. These are 3×3 bingo cards, so Scouts will be trying to get three in a row. That makes it perfect for a quick gathering activity since the games should be pretty short.

Candy Corn Mix Recipe: Here is a fun recipe for all of that Halloween candy corn. You could count this for Bear requirement 9b: With an adult, make snacks for the next den meeting. It isn’t the healthiest thing in the world, but it probably a little better than the bags of chips or ding-dongs the parents used to send for our den when we had our meetings right after school. At least the peanuts have a little nutritional value.

We always carve at least one Jack ‘O Lantern in October. The first step is to remove the top and scoop out all of the pulp and seeds from the inside of the pumpkin. We never let the seeds go to waste though. We roast them and eat them instead. If you want to roast the seeds from your pumpkin, our recipe is below. These never last long in our house.
