Arrow of Light Building a Better World Adventure: Cub Scout Helps and Ideas

A world globe cupped in two hands and an image of the Arrow of Light Building a Better World Cub Scout adventure pin.

The requirements for the Building a Better World adventure help Webelos learn about good citizenship and good stewardship of our resources. Webelos working towards Arrow of Light will learn about the flag, become more engaged in their communities, explore energy conservation, and develop leadership skills.

This US Flag Cootie Catcher is a good way to encourage Webelos to learn more about the history of the flag.

Citizenship football is a fun way to learn about being more active in the community and government.

I have helps for displaying the US flag, an opening flag ceremony, and a closing flag ceremony. See the bottom of this post for even more flag related activities.

Here are more ideas to help Webelos complete the Building a Better World adventure:

When retiring a United Stated flag, some people will say that you must do it this way or that way, but according to the Flag Code, it just needs to be done with respect.
