I was recently asked to be an assistant Den Mother in my son’s Wolf Den in Cub Scouts. I am excited to be involved with him in this fun adventure, but I have to admit, learning the scouting “ropes” is like learning an entirely new language. I don’t understand half of what they’re talking about in meetings, but I’m hoping I’ll learn quickly. 😉
We have a pretty large den- 10 boys now. With many of them just barely joining our den, we decided it would be a good idea to help them get their Bobcat right off in our Den. But, since not all of them need their Bobcat, we thought it would be fun to have a project all of them could take home- even the more ‘seasoned’ scouts in our den. This is what me made:
It’s the Cub Scout Motto and it’s something all scouts should know. We thought it would be a fun reminder the boys could keep in their rooms. (plus, it’s a pretty good motto even if you’re not a scout 😉 ) We cut 4″ blocks from a 2X4, sanded them and then let the boys get to work. The painted them blue and then used glue sticks to glue down the letters we had cut from cardstock using a Cricut. It might be easier to use vinyl, but we were trying to keep costs down.
The boys seemed pretty happy with them, which is what really matters. 🙂
