Wolf Achievement 8
A. List some foods from each of the four basic food groups
B. Plan the meals you and your family should have for one day. List things
your family should have from the four food groups.
C. Help fix at least one meal for your family. Help set the table, cook the
food, and wash the dishes.
D. Fix your own breakfast. Wash and put away the dishes.
E. Help to plan, prepare, and cook an outdoor meal.
All of these must be done, and the achievement must be done to get the Wolf
Badge. A and B are quite easy and can be done at any den meeting. For C,
something simple like spaghetti, if you want to even get that complicated.
D, Fix your own breakfast, very simple! My son likes waffles. E, was very
simple for us, we did it during the hurricane, had no power for three days,
ALL our meals were outdoor meals.
Bear Achievement 9
A. Make cookies, a recipe for oatmeal cookies is given. (There are some no
bake cookie recipes out there, too.)
B. If your parent or guardian says it is all right, volunteer to make snacks
for the next den meeting. (suggestions are hard boiled eggs, carrot and
celery sticks, and popcorn.)
C. Prepare one part of your breakfast, one part of your lunch, and one part of
your dinner. (suggestions are juice/cooked cereal, sandwiches/soup, boiled
potatoes/carrots or spaghetti.)
D. Make a list of "junk" foods you eat. Discuss "junk" foods with your parent
E. Make some healthful after school snacks or some snacks for watching
television. (suggestion is nuts and bolts, mix peanuts, raisins & dry
cereal, or as we call it GORP.)
F. Make a dessert for your family (suggestions are brownies, instant pudding,
Four of these must be done to get credit for completing the achievement.
Achievement 9 is one of six options for the Family Section. Four
Achievements must be completed in the Family section. For achievement A, we
made oatmeal cookies. For C, my son made waffles, sandwich and helped with
a pasta side dish. For E, cheese and crackers. For F, we made
cupcakes...should have seen them frosting. We could NOT do B, as the den
meetings have not yet started. There have been some recipes for spoon fudge
and baggie ice cream that would be fun with this age group. We have
actually done the spoon fudge recipe at a meeting. And, seeing as how I
like to bake, I had a LOT of mix-ins the kids had LOADS of fun with that
one. In the bear achievements, grocery shopping with a parent, and figuring
out cost of a meal are also creditted. And, I think having a family picnic
is creditted either as an achievement or elective in both ranks.
I hope this helps. They aren't really asking a LOT of the boys. Of course,
my boys like to follow mom in the kitchen, and as Mike will attest to...I
like to bake. My four year old insists on making his own breakfast and
