Pre-Opening Activity

How Observant Are You?


Before your meeting starts prepare about a dozen objects (e.g. a homemade spider hanging on a thread in an easy-to-see place; a rubber snake fastened to the back of the Cubmaster's belt; a den leader with a fake honey bee in her hair; a butterfly on a father's shoulder). Just before the meeting starts, ask, by a show of hands, how many have spotted the spider, snake, etc. You now have their attention; proceed with your meeting.
