We had a very exciting week as the Cubs attempted to break some Guinness World Records! They were able to attempt each record three times and there was a certificate for the Cub who did the best at each challenge.  All of the challenges come from the Guinness World Record Challengers website. If you click the challenge name in the list below it takes you to the page of the website where you can see videos of the current record holders!
