The Greatest Show on EarthIndian Nations Council
The "fishpond" is a large cardboard box turned upside down, with slots cut in the bottom. In each slot, insert a "fish" cut from cardboard. On each fish mark a length and weight for it. For each team, you need a cane pole with a 3-foot string and a bent paper clip for the hook. Team members line up relay fashion, with the first member holding the pole. On signal he runs to the fishpond and catches a fish. A judge records the length and weight. The team with the greatest weight total of fish wins.
Rowing Relay - Go fishing in the lake :
Players on each team sit or kneel in a large cardboard box and propel themselves to the goal line and back by using two short broomsticks with rubber tips.
FREE TIME FOR FISHING
Prizes could be given for biggest fish caught, littlest fish, most fish caught, longest fish caught, etc. Inexpensive fishing tackle might be used for prizes.
Cub Scout Indoor Field Day
(This is an indoor activity which could be scheduled for a regular monthly activity or a standby activity when an outdoor activity is canceled due to bad weather.)
Packs competing by den seems to work best. The size of the pack will dictate this.
SOME OF THE EVENTS MIGHT BE:
Use a paper plate and throw it like a discus.
The den is lined up heal to toe and the greatest length wins.
The boy who hold a whistle the longest, with one breath wins.
FEATHER BLOW RELAY
Blow a feather 50 feet and then return and tag the next runner.
The boys who makes the sound of a baby crying the longest with one breath wins.
GREAT SHOE ROUNDUP
All the boy's shoes are piled up across a line. ON a signal the boys race to the pile and find their shoes. Put them on and run back. First team with all shoes on wins.
Other Pack Activities
Tie one leg of a pair of panty hose around the boy's waist leaving the other leg hanging down. Put a potato in the toe for weight. Another potato (the roundest one you can find) on the floor. Swing the hanging leg without using your hands and strike the potato on the floor in order to propel it a certain distance. First across the line wins. This could also be a relay. Untie the panty hose and tie them to the next boy.
