Take the 30 day Cub Scout challenge! Work on both required and elective adventures from your home. Get calendars for Lions, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos and Arrows of Light.
I have a cool 30 day Cub Scout challenge to share with you! These activities are perfect to do while you're at home with your Scouts.
These were created by Hawkeye Area Council’s Program Director, Sam Mensinger. Thank you, Sam! These are awesome!
I first saw them on Facebook and later found them on two Council websites–the Hawkeye Area Council and the Heart of America Council.
What is the 30 Day Cub Scout Challenge?
The Cub Scout challenge is a way to keep our Cub Scouts involved and motivated when they're out of school and Scouting activities are postponed.
There is a challenge for each rank.
- Webelos and Arrow of Light (they're combined like their handbook is)
The creator of these printable calendars selected between 6 and 10 adventures (some required and some elective). Then they picked activities from the adventures and put one on each day of the month for 30 days.
30 Days & 30 Activities
Your Cub Scout can complete the activity for the day and mark it off on the calendar.
When your Cub Scout den meets again, your Scout show their completed calendar to their den leader so he or she can sign off on the activities in their books.
Just following the calendar won't allow the Scouts to complete most of the adventures. If the remaining requirements can be safely done, have your Scout finish them and write it on the calendar.
Note: I'll be working on a blog post that will give you a list of adventures that your Cub Scout can complete on their own. Be watching for that soon!

31 Day Cub Scout Lego Calendar
My friend Christina from That Brick Life created a super cool Lego challenge calendar for Cub Scouts! Kids use each of the 31 Cub Scout-related prompts to design and build a Lego creation.
