Magic Day – Theme: Positive Attitute @ HOC5
Jan 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:45 pm


2:00pm – Opening ceremony
2:10pm – Announcement
2:30pmMagic Show
(performed by the Magician, Mr. Doug Jones)
3:00pm – Den meeting
3:30pm – Closing ceremony


Tiger Den needs to work on the Tiger Elective 19 – Magic Fun “Learn a magic trick and show it to your family or den.” (Tiger Badge Requirements)

Bear Den needs to work on the Item e in the Bear Achievement 22 – Tying It All Up is “Learn a magic rope trick.” So this is great chance for Bears to learn a magic rope trick. (Bear Badge Requirements)

For other dens, although you won’t be doing any requirements for this topic, you can still enjoy the magic tricks and learn to have fun or use the 30 minutes den meeting time to work on other requirements.

Having a positive attitude means that we think about the good and not the negative things we do or face in our lives. While learning magic tricks and puzzles, it can be frustrating, especially when we don’t get the trick or puzzle figured out right away. That negative “I can’t do it” may come more easily to us than trying again with an “I-think-I-can” positive attitude. That “I think I can” just might quickly turn into “I can!”

“Positive Attitude” is one of Cub Scouting’s 12 Core Values. Cub Scout leaders should strive to use Cub Scouting’s 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings

Why Recycle?

Recycling conserves resources

When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry.
Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.

Recycling saves energy

Using recycled materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials – even when comparing all associated costs, like transport.
Plus there are extra energy savings because more energy is required to extract, refine, transport and process raw materials ready for industry compared with providing industry-ready materials.
