This weekend, Ryan's Webelos Cub Scout Den coordinated their Pack's annual Blue and Gold Dinner. All this Scout jargon to say that it was a fun camping theme that could easily transfer over for a birthday party or summer sleepover!
Here are some pictures from the event.
|There were a variety of center pieces on the tables, including this one. Plus, we rolled plastic silverware into napkins, tied them with rope and stuck them in a blue bucket on each table instead of doing each place setting.|
|Another center piece - there was a tea light in the center that made the tissue paper glow and look life fire.|
|Another center piece - simply rocks in mason jars topped with an electronic tea light. The flash on my camera didn't exactly catch the cool "glow" of the jars, but you get the idea.|
|One of the moms made (hundreds) of campfire cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes rolled in graham cracker crumbs for "dirt", fondant "fire" and Tootsie Roll "logs", plus some had edible rock candies on top.|
|They were displayed on a portable grill next to flashlights and propane lanterns.|
Ryan loves Cub Scouts. I'm not sure if he loves scouting as much as he loves all of the cool things he gets to learn and places he gets to go with the boys in his pack. Derby car racing, camping, hiking, learning to tie crazy knots, touring the state capitol, going to museums, learning about the Phoenix public transit system, whittling, crawdad fishing, selling things to raise funds (my little entrepreneur)…it's all pretty cool boy stuff. Plus he gets to earn patches and belt loops and other scout accomplishments! I'd like to take something out of our schedule to slow down a bit, but according to Ryan, Cub Scouts will NOT be the omitted activity. He genuinely enjoys it!
