At our last pack meeting, with the assistance of one of the other leaders
and the parents of the new Bobcats, we took each boy in turn, and held
them upside down while the parent pinned on the Bobcat pin. When the boy
was returned to an upright position, the pin was then upside down and is to
remain that way until the boy does a good deed. He can then give it to
his parent to wear rightside up!
At PowWow, in a class on ceremonies, there was a great one for Bear
awards. You can dress up in buckskins with a long rifle or wear a bear
skin over you (made from fake fur... I'm going to use an old fur
beadspread picked up from Salvation Army Thrift Store) and go hunting for
Bears... round them up and bring them up front in a group to get their
...that could be easily adapted for Wolves, also!
That's all I have right now... just started in my position as Awards
Chairman, so am looking for more ideas myself. Anyone else have some more?
