Theme: 50 Great States ideas for the Wolf Den and Bear Den - Skits, Game, Song, Crafts and Activities

Theme: 50 Great States

 Have a large map of the United States out and have everyone mark where they are from – supply yarn and colored pins so each family can mark where family members have lived

Den Meeting Idea:
Have the families ask relatives and friends to send postcards from where they live.  See if as a group, your boys can collect all 50 states!

Skit, Joke or Run on:

Game:The Fifty Stars Relay Game
Divide the group into equal teams lined up a few feet away from a table.  Place a bowl on the table for each team. Lay 50 cutout paper stares approximately 2 inches in diameter on the table beside each bowl.  Give each player his own straw.  On a signal, the first player in each team runs forward and picks up one star (or as many as he can with one breath) by sucking on the straw, thus holding the star to the end of the straw.  No hands!  He releases the stars into the bowl, and then funs to tag the next player and goes to the end of the line.  He may need to run again.  The first team to have all 50 stars in the bowl is the winner.  The game could be varied by using the original 13 stars for a smaller group of boys.
Hint: If you use tissue paper, it is easier to pick up.

Song:God Bless America:
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God Bless America, my home sweet home,
God Bless America, my home sweet home,
