There have recently been several posts regarding ideas for activities for
Tiger Cub Dens. Remember too, to include the boys in the planning of these
outings. Have the boy and his adult partner work together in picking and
planning the activity. The boy learns along with with the adult, and the
adult may find that it may not need to be as complicated an activity.
An illustration of this happened last year. One of the dads planned an
outing for the boys to see the printing business he works for. The day
arrived and the boys were given the grand tour. After the tour, the Tigers
and their adult partners stopped and reflected on what they had "discovered".
Every one of the boys comments were not about the big presses or the printing
business. What the Tigers thought was the neatest thing they had seen that
morning was the employees lunch room and the
great pop and drink machines and the candy machines!
The old saying comes home to roost again: Keep it Simple, Make it Fun!
