About Sherry

Pie in the face
I'm about to get hit in the face with a pie by my own son because he sold a lot of popcorn.

Hi!  I'm Sherry Smothermon-Short!

Are you a Cub Scout leader or parent who's looking for Cub Scout ideas? If you are, you've come to the right place!

My husband and I were den leaders, and we know firsthand how much FUN Cub Scouts can be – but also how much time and work it can require.

My goal here at Cub Scout Ideas is to save you tons of time by giving you fun, inexpensive, easy and creative ideas you can use immediately… so you can spend less time on the work and get to focus on the FUN with your Scouts! 

We've already done the “research and homework” so I'm passing that on to make it easier on you. Be sure to subscribe by email so you always have creative ideas on hand you can use!

We were den leaders for every rank. I also served as our Pack Committee Chair for several years. Now, I'm our Pack Trainer, and I'm a member of our Council's University of Scouting teaching staff.

I have served as a day camp staff member, assistant director or director since we started Scouting. Now, I work with day camp in an advisory role. I am a huge fan of Cub Scout Day Camps!

I love to find cool projects that fulfill requirements or that are fun for the Scouts. And I especially like it when those projects are cheap to do!

I would love to hear from you about some of your projects too. Just email me at [email protected] or connect with me via social media.  I'm on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

So, grab your Diet Dr. Pepper and stay a while to visit! Here's a list of some of the most popular posts to get you started.

Have you signed up for updates by email yet? You'll get all of the fun ideas without having to spend your time doing the research!

Yours in Scouting,
