Our Cubs have been a couple of good crafts so far this year. They've made bubblegum dispensers - some of which were placed in local stores to raise money to pay postage to send blankets to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan - and they've also made a lamp recently, too. My boys haven't finished their lamps, though, because Mom's been battling the flu here. These look like an old-fashioned water pump and the pump handle is attached to a chain that turns the lamp on and off by lifting or lowering the "pump" handle. I'm not sure where the troop leader got the plans for these - maybe at one of our area Scout Stores?

We just finished our annual Pinewood Derby race, too, which the boys really enjoyed. We only have a small troop (13 boys) but they enjoy Scouting a lot.

I was the leader of the Wolf Cubs last year, but I'm not leading this year because my son moved up to Bears and the Bear leader from last year stayed on. My youngest will be a Tiger Cub next year. He's attended every meeting of the Wolves last year and the Bears this year, though, so he already knows everything from the Bobcat Trail.

Our NSS club edited and updated the Space Exploration handook My contribution was the section where a Scout would use everyday items from the recycle bin to build space craft, space stations and extraterrestrial colonies.

Before we included it in the handbook I visited a Cub Scout meeting with my camera and a recycle bin. The cubs loved the challenge. Some hot glue a raid on Den Mom's kitchen for some aluminum foil and the results were outstanding. Pringles potatoe chip cans, 2 liter soda bottles, the caps from margarine tubs etc etc! One of the Cubs brought his younger sister to watch and she joined in the fun.
