Yo Cub Scouts!
Did you know that June 6th is National Yo-Yo Day? YOU DO NOW!
Did you also know that Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Scouts have the chance to earn a unique Yo-Yo Preview Adventure? YOU DO NOW!
The first step for any activity is is learn the safety rules – To learn new tricks and play with a yo-yo:
- Only use a yo-yo in a safe area where there are no hazards or other people. You could draw a circle on the ground with chalk (if you are outside) or make a ring out of rope to keep the area around you clear.
- Before you throw, always make sure your yo-yo is attached to the string and the string is securely attached to your finger. We don’t want an loose yo-yos running away!
- Be careful not to hit anyone or anything with your yo-yo. Even thought a yo-yo is “just a toy” – A yo-yo can do some damage if it hits a person or objects around you.
Head over to the Yo-Yo adventure page on BSA’s website for the rest of the requirements and look for some tips and tricks posted to Patuxent District’s Facebook page throughout the day today!!
When you get good at a trick or learn something new, have your parent or guardian take a video and post it to the NCAC Facebook Page!
Be safe and have fun!
