    Honesty Ideas

    Alice, Golden Empire Council

    Weave a Den Meeting About Honesty
    Felicia, who does the Bear Den Meeting Ideas for Baloo’s Bugle, came up with this great Cub Grub recipe for Spiders ~ and using the old time phrase. That got me started on this whole den meeting idea. As any teacher can tell you, the more ways you present an idea, especially hands on or with something edible, the better the lesson sticks.
    Thanks, Felicia!

    1. As a Gathering Activity, tell the boys you are going to be doing some weaving – then give each boy a half-page instruction sheet showing how to weave together an Amazing Flying Machine. Challenge them to throw their machine like a disc in an enclosed space. When it hits the wall it will explode – that why we used to call them “Bomb Pops.” They were made from POPsicle sticks and exploded like a bomb.

    2. There’s someone else that does a lot of weaving. Here’s a hint: You’ll find the results up in the corners of a room, or in a hidden space between the table and wall, or even on a bush. It’s made by a creature with 8 legs.

    (Answer: Spiders Weave Webs)

    1. We played a fun game using hula hoops to see if we could work together to “weave” a web. Have three or four boys get inside a hula hoop, facing out so their backs are together. Now they must move diagonally across an area from point to point as if weaving a web - at least two of the boys are always going backwards. The goal is to finish a course that would “weave” a web across the room in the fastest time. The team with the fastest time wins. But if they fall over, they have to start over! This is harder than it looks.

    2. Show Spider Treats with a slip of paper that has this saying on it. (Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave, When First We Practice to Deceive) See Cub Grub for the recipe.

    3. Talk about the saying with the boys, and make sure they understand what the words meanand about examples of honesty and when it’s hardest to be honest. Boys could also make the spider treats for their family – and take home a lesson to share. My note home follows:
