Knots

Knots of Fun


Glue a sample(s) of the knot to a colored board (Tigers - orange board; Wolf - red; Bear - green; Webelos - blue). Have each Cub learns an age appropriate knot: Tiger - overhand knot; Wolf - square knot; Bear - bowline knot; Webelos - tautline hitch (& why the knot is useful). Give each Cub an appropriate length of rope. Demonstrate their knot a few times then let them try. When they believe the know the knot, let them tie it using a piece of Pull & Peel twizzler. Once they can demonstrate it correctly twice in a row, let them eat it!
