Music Pack Meeting Pictures

I survived my first Pack Meeting! It actually went really well. The kids had a good time, we passed off the music requirements, beltloop, and pin, and even the parents seemed to enjoy the evening!

Recognize these deporations Holly?

Here is the main table - I put the cheer box, Arrow of Light award, and other awards up there

I set up this table in the back of the room for them to make their drums on

Welcome to Scouts Candy Bar Wrapper

I found this online and thought this would be cute to take to the new scouts with a welcome letter and information.

Cheer Box

I saw this cute idea on someone's blog for a Cheer Box. The boys in our pack seem to love the silly little cheers Cub Scouts do but they don't know any because the leader before me didn't like doing them. So I thought it would be fun to print them, make the Cheer box, and have someone pick a cheer each pack meeting for everyone to do. Here's a link for different cheers you can put in the box:

Musical Pack Meeting

For our pack meeting in May, we are doing a musical theme so the boys can pass off some of the music requirements.

This is the background I used for the invitation/reminder sheets I will take around to the parents the week before.

We are going to have them make little drums as the come in like this. They are just an empty tin can with a balloon stretched and rubber banded to the top. I will probably get some stuff so they can decorate them how they want to. The instructions on how to make these said you can put rice in them so they can be shakers, and to get chop sticks to use as drum sticks. Super cute!
Once of our den leaders is a musician and knows a guy who does sound editing for his profession so he is going to come and talk to the boys. Then we are going to have each den do a musical performance- the Bears are playing bells and the others are doing a kazoo band.

At the end, I thought it would be fun to have a karaoke machine set up and call groups to come up and sing while everyone accompanies them on their little drums. I will post pictures after the pack meeting. Hope it goes well!!
