Spring into Action Pack Meeting
This month's Pack meeting fell on the same evening as two other events, so I missed some of Pack meeting and the part I was physically there for, I was slightly distracted from trying to switch gears. I did get there in time to present two of my boys their Wolf badges! That was definitely the highlight for me.
There was a couple of games that I missed, but a few of us made homemade Chia pets. We took a knee high nylon, put in some grass seeds and a cup or so of potting soil. Then we got the seeds and soil down to the toe and tied a knot to keep it there. Next we hot glued googly eyes and pom pom to make a face (or something like a face). We came home and soaked it in water. I was surprised at how quickly they started growing grass, it was less than a week. I haven't seen any sprouts from the seeds we planted with the scouts or on our own.
