You’ll want to be a kid again when you see how many awesome things our Cubs get to do, like...Go to a museum, a police or fire station, a sporting event, tv station, a concert or play; take a hike, play catch, learn about the flag, first aid, historical field trip, use tools to build something like a toolbox or scooter or Cubmobile, make a collection, learn how to cook, show your bicycling skills, create a new board game, help your church, use invisible ink, learn sign language, do a skit, make a kite or model plane/boat/car/etc., read a book, use stilts, throw a party, build and play a musical instrument, paint, learn which birds are which, take care of your pet, plant plants, tie knots, build a treasure hunt, go fishing, any sport you can think of, play video games, learn another language, build your muscles, and the list keeps going …
