Pickle Person Contest:
Give each scout a giant dill pickle on a paper plate with yarn, beads, pipe cleaners, and other material for decorating the pickle. Stick the materials to the pickle with tacky glue. Have each scout write his name on the plate, and decorate the pickle to look like a person. Award prizes for the funniest pickle person.

Pickle Relay:
Divide the group into two or more teams. Give each scout a toothpick. Each team is given a small sweet pickle and they must pass the pickle down the line using only their toothpick. No hands allowed!

Hot Cucumber:
Play a game of “hot potato”, using a large cucumber.

Pickle Plunge:
Have kids take off their shoes and socks, and dig pickles out of a tub of ice with their toes.
