Spell It Out

Equipment: Pencil and Paper


1.      Give the Cubs a phrase made up of two or three words.

2.      From that phrase, the Cubs must come up with as many words as possible.  Challenge them by making them think of words only with “B”, or “S”, or “D,” or limit them to just three letter words or four letter words.

3.      Use a phrase that is common to your pack or den.  Or perhaps one like:


(Pen, den, nine, dine, pay, day, nice, dice, pace, yen)

Take a hike with your Cubs through your neighborhood, yard, or local park and ask them to try to find something that begins with a letter of the alphabet--A, B, C.   This can played as teams as a scavenger hunt too.  Remind your Cubs that working together as a team provides the best outcome.
