A little background:
I used to be the den leader in one of my son's packs a couple years ago, and my husband used to be the cubmaster in another son's pack years ago, and I used to be the committee chair until recently, not to mention I used to be over our church's children's program a few years ago, which included cub scouts, AND my husband and I were the district's Cub Scout daycamp program directors one year too. (How's that for a run on sentence? lol) Can you tell we LOVE scouting?
So...I was so excited to share this with the boys in our pack and have them make them at our pack meeting last month as a gathering activity for our Blue and Gold Banquet!
These are the supplies I started with:
And this is what we ended up with!
Here's a little tutorial if you are wanting to make some:
I used paint that I already had. One was the blue in a spray paint can (above). The other was a bottle of acrylic gold that I just sponge brushed on.
Again, I used what I had on hand, but even if you bought some, this project is super low cost for lots of boys!
And wear with pride!
Yeah for Cub Scout Fun!
