      Do you have extra time on your hands during a den or patrol meeting that you
      need to fill? Do you have a training event where you need to add a quick
      activity to liven up the moment? Are you involved with Day Camp and need
      some quick activities to do with the scouts when they are early to an event
      or need to be occupied for a while?

      Here are some ideas that will help you meet your needs. If you have
      additional ideas, share with the rest of the group. Send a message to Dee
      Dee Cobb (deedee.cobb@...), a list will be compiled and posted.

      To keep up with these ideas, write them on 3 x 5 cards.
