Elective 6A~ Go to the Library and get a library card
Elective 6B~ Choose a book
Requirement 10D~ Read a book with your family
Elective 6C~ Make a book cover
Don't know what to use for your book cover paper? How about old wrapping paper that is turned backwards giving you a white cover? Or you can buy brown butcher paper rolls at your local office supply store. We plan on precutting the paper before the meeting.
I have to say, I was pretty impressed at the extent of their collection. Cars that were tiny, cars that raced, cars with 3 wheels, cars that went in the water. Yes, they had amphibian cars! Cars
made out of wood, fiberglass, stainless steel. Motorcycles with one wheel, motor cycles with rotary engines. Cars that were pedal powered, cars that looked like planes, cars with wings and planes that could fit in your garage. Fast cars, slow cars, old cars, new cars. This is beginning to sound like a Dr. Seuss story!
It really was very impressive. On this particular day, they had tours of the basement collection. More fun stuff going on down there. We really got to see some very cool, very unique vehicles. Although I do have to say that I certainly have an new appreciation from my more modern car. Safety items, good gas milage and a little more power!
Definately a fun place to look into for your collecting belt loop qualification of visiting a museum and seeing a collection.
To find a car museum near you, visit the National Association of Automobile Museums website http://www.naam.museum/
Here are a few of our favorites:
We had some Tiger cubs tagging along so we started singing the "We are Tigers" from the Frosted Flakes commercial with Tony the Tiger. They really seemed to think that was awesome. We sang that twice and added a growl at the end. The thing is, you can adapt that to Wolves just as easily..."We are Wolf cubs, mighty, mighty Wolf cubs."
Repeat after me songs seem to work best with my Wolves, and its something they can do as they walk to keep them up with the group and not falling behind.

All of our crafts will be done with a Pirate theme this month. We did a demonstration for the boys to show them how the stories had to include each of the items in the bag and they had a blast. Many of the parents stopped me on the way out and said that thier son's were already working on their stories in the car!
We included the following items to be included in the stories:
Gold and Silver or coins
Remember: To Err is Human, to Arr is Pirate!
