handful of kidney beans for each six


Mexican Jumping Beans Game
Have the pack form into sixes.

Give each six a small bag of dry beans (kidney beans), with several handfuls of beans in each bag.

Form sixes into single lines for this relay race.

When the leader says go, the first Cub fills his socks with all the beans and then hops from one end of

the room to the other.
When he returns to the line, the Cub empties his socks and gives the beans to the next Cub.

Continue until all Cubs have finished and the beans are collected.
