• Make a snake using a man's old tie, beads, and string.
• Wrap a gift using old newspaper comics.
• Use a rock to make a bug or animal with string, paint, and scrap material.

detergent, and water.
Ask cubs to collect something that reminds them of themselves and display it at pack meeting.

Hike in the woods to collect leaves and identify them.
Collect twigs and make letters or objects and have the other boys/family members guess what
