Pre-Opening Activity

Puzzle Hunt


Before the den meeting, cut out full-page pictures or the covers of Boys' Life magazine and paste them to a piece of poster board. Cut them out into three pieces, jigsaw fashion. Make three piles of the three sections of puzzles with a section form each puzzle in each pile. Pin or tape the pieces from one pile to the wall, hide the pieces from the second pile somewhere in the room, and when the boys arrive give each boy one of the pieces from the third pile. They try to match their piece to one on the wall and hunt for one of the hidden pieces and match that to one on the wall. They may end up at a different puzzle than what they started with.
