Cub Scout Blue & Gold Star Person neckerchief slide idea - Astronomy, Citizenship

We did this cute little guy in Roundtable last week.  To make him, print out the PDF of the picture below, and cut out each shape.  Trace onto the fun foam.  Cut out the foam pieces, turn them over, and glue them together with a glue gun so you don't see the pen marks.  Glue on 7mm size eyes, draw on the nose and mouth, add some glitter glue for a neckerchief slide, and add a flag if desired.  Attach a section of PVC pipe to the back.

 Cut out each shape and trace onto fun foam

 Use a glue gun to assemble the pieces together

 If you want wiggle eyes, the size I used was 7mm
 Thanks to Nancy Brimhall for the cute idea for this neckerchief slide below!
 You can do it with or without a hat
 And the flag is optional also

Utah National Parks Council Pow Wow Book Supplement 2011-2012

I noticed this on the Akela's Council blogspot and thought it was a great resource.  Go check it out!  It is a 217 page document...  In August of 2011, Utah National Parks Council put out a supplemental CD to their Pow Wow book they had published the previous year.  There are 217 pages with an assortment of amazing cub scout resources including... Core Value Info, and pages with forms to be able to keep hard copies for each of the boys so you do not have to rely on the boys books.  There is some great information.  Hope you have fun checking it out.
