Cub Scouts Give Thanks Theme for April

Posted on 20 March 2012 by Scouter Mom

Cub Scout Theme for April is Faith, Thank You

CC by: Woodleywonderworks

Each month, the Cub Scout program focuses on a core value. The Cub Scout April theme is Faith. BSA has started releasing theme based pack meeting plans for each of these core values. I hear that the new April theme will be Cub Scouts Give Thanks. So this month, I’ll be highlighting some ways that thankfulness can be incorporated into the Cub Scout program on my site ScouterMom.com.

This April theme for Cub Scouts brings to mind both thankfulness to the Creator and remembering to show appreciation to each other. This thankfulness theme also presents a good opportunity for your Cub Scouts to thank everyone who helps them with the program – their parents, their leaders, and the chartering organization. Have your Cub Scouts spend some time writing thank you notes to them, or come up with a creative way for the Cubs to show their appreciation.
