Here in Italy, our little Scouts are called “Little Wolves”. When they join the pack, and they haven’t pronounced their pledge yet, they are called CUBS.
This year we had an enormous number of new cubs (happy!! :)) and we decided to give them a little present to welcome them to the pack. The day before their arrival, the oldest wolves crafted some scout hats out of half nut shells.
I assume in other countries uniforms must be with different colors, but I think the cubs’ hat must be similar.
Here’s what you’ll need:
permanent paint (the color of your pack’s hat)
+ construction paper
1) Divide the nut shells in perfect halves. Do it at home… it takes a while!
2) Cut the construction paper as big as the shells, but remember the visor!
3) Glue together nut shell and construction paper.
4) Color them.
5) While the glue dryes, write the names of the kids on the clothes pins.
6) When the paint is dry, draw the lines with the marker.
7) Lastly, glue the hat to the pin, and then let the glue dry again. (check in advance how long it will take for your glue to dry)
The clothespins are ready to be gifted.
Yours in scouting…
