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.

We had a district Cub Winter camp that was Race Car Themed. On the last day we had 3 NASCAR Drivers come with their cars to hand out the PWD kits. Even had 7 Girl Scouts at winter Camp to run a "Tot-Lot" for the moms with younger children that wanted to be with the Cubs on the Camp Days. Our the Dist PWD isn't until Mid March and we'll have an Antique Car Gear Heads do the judging and they'll have a couple of their cars there for the boys (the Dads) and the Scouts to admire.
