Recently, I shared my post about taking attendance at Cub Scout meetings on the Cub Scout Ideas Facebook page. I asked that folks share their Cub Scout meeting attendance taking secrets.
Kelly Alberts was kind enough to share a picture of her attendance sheet for Cub Scouts and an explanation of how she uses it. Her idea is awesome! I recreated it as a pdf so that you could download it to use as your meeting sign in sheet. Just click on the link below. Continue reading
You’ll want to collect some supplies for your den. Things such as crayons, markers, pencils, scissors and rulers are needed for many of our Cub Scout activities.

I’m so excited to share this information with you! BSA has released Cub Scout pack meeting plans for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 scouting years. There are plans for each point of the Scout Law.

If you’re focusing on elections during your pack meeting, here’s a fun way to present awards the boys have earned using “Vote!” banners!
Below you’ll find the directions on how to make these. Each step is detailed, so it may look like they are more difficult or time-consuming than they actually are.
Our November pack meeting last year was about citizenship, and we had a mock election. I hope you’ll think it’s one of the cool Cub Scout pack meeting ideas! I know I’ve had a lot of fun planning it.
The new Cub Scout pack meeting plan themes are the 12 points of the Scout Law, so we can add the mock election to the Loyal meeting. A Scout is true to his nation.
