Scouts is a great way to get kids involved within the community, starting from kindergarten for daisy scouts and first grade for cub scouts. My husband is the main leader for our son's den and loves it. It's usually for an hour 1/2 or so every other week. Our daughter goes to daisy scout meetings every other week for an hour.
The awesome thing about being part of girl scouts is that the kids get to learn things about making flower arrangements and more! And, both boy and girl scouts get to participate in the Santa Parade every year, which is later this month. They get to help leaders create and decorate their floats! They had a blast last year, and after the parade is over we head into the local community building and can get: hot cocoa, hot dogs, cookies, and get a picture or two with Santa and Mrs Clause.
