The Greatest Show on EarthIndian Nations Council
Lay out several items gathered from your scouting bag or from around the room. As the Cubs enter have them look at these things. Later handout a piece of paper and have them make a list of what they saw. This helps to teach them to pay attention and to hold onto visual things a little easier.
(Examples: pencil, pen, paper clip, book, crayons.....)
Introduce yourself to twenty-four people giving them the Cub Scout handshake. Ask them to write their names in the squares below. Be sure every square contains a signature. Hold on to this sheet. We'll play the game later.
(Play game like Bingo..calling out names instead of numbers. First person to mark a whole row, across, down or diagonally is winner and calls out CUBBINGO!)
