Cub Scout: Home & Family

Cub Scout: Home & Family

During your Walt Disney World vacation, your scout will have the opportunity to practice his home & family skills as you plan for your vacation, while traveling to WDW, dining at the restaurants, and visiting the parks.

Throughout the Cub Scout ranks, there are many Home & Family goals built into the adventures including:

  • Appreciating diversity and each Scout’s unique family heritage
  • Being observant
  • Building skills
  • Developing confidence, and encouraging bravery and patience
  • Developing patience and perseverance as they train their pets
  • Following directions
  • Home repair knowledge and skills
  • Learning some basics about project planning (selecting a project, evaluating what is needed, choosing the proper type of wood, etc.)
  • Learning the benefits of having loyal pets and being loyal to them in return
  • Motor skills
  • Showing creativity and artistic skills with the final project
  • Showing respect and kindness for animals
  • Understanding basic tools and tool safety
  • Using math skills while measuring
  • Working with wood to create a project
A Scout is trustworthy, helpful, courteous, obedient, and kind while practicing home & family skills.

Disney Family Tree & Crest

Disney Family Tree & Crest

Scouts who need to complete a family tree for an adventure elective requirement or a Merit Badge requirement should start with their name and include at least two additional generations. While completing a family tree, parents and scouts can discuss the history, traditions, and culture of their family heritage.

My Family Tree for the Core Value: Faith

Faith means having inner strength and confidence based on trust in a higher power. Understanding one’s family tree, ancestors, and heritage brings stories to life of the strength and confidence of our family members. It also tells of their belief and trust in a higher power to help bring them safely to the United States. In years past, many immigrants traveled by boat. What faith they had in that boat that would change their lives!  Courtesy April 2013 Cub Scout Meeting Guide

“it’s a small world” Lyrics

“it’s a small world” Lyrics

it’s a small world is a popular, musical boat ride located in the Fantasyland area Magic Kingdom Park.  The ride features over 300 brightly costumed audio-animatronic dolls dressed in the style of the children of the world, frolicking in a spirit of international unity, and singing the attraction’s title song, which has a theme of global peace.

 
“it’s a small world”
by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman
It’s a world of laughter,
A world of tears.
It’s a world of hopes,
And a world of fears.
There’s so much that we share,
That it’s time we’re aware,
It’s a small world after all.
Chorus:
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small, small world.
There is just one moon,
And one golden sun.
And a smile means,
Friendship to every one.
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide,
It’s a small world after all.
