Tiger Cubs is the introduction to Cub Scouts for 1st graders with a strong emphasis on fun. Your creativity is the limit when it comes to satisfying the 5 requirements for the Tiger Badge. Each requirement has a den and family activity to complete along with a “go see it” (or field trip). Tigers receive a “bead” for each activity successfully completed as they work toward their Tiger badge.
Although each Tiger den will have an official Den Leader, responsibility for the activities is shared by each scout/sponsor pair. When it is your turn to lead the activity, encourage your son to participate in the planning process. Remember: be creative: visit a fire station and climb on the trucks and try on a fireman’s suit (requirement 2 and a great photo experience!). Visit the post office to see how mail is sorted (requirement 2). Visit a pizzeria and make your own pizza (Elective 25 or 45). Tiger track beads are awarded for elective activities completed once the Tiger badge is awarded. There are over 50 elective activities!
