Cub Scout Crafts

Crafts, projects, games, and activities ideas for cub scouts.


Eagle Claw Necklace for New Scouts

This craft is a pack tradition of ours that was passed down to me from our old pack Cubmaster. It is relatively simple to make and very cheap. I make this for all the new scouts that join our pack as a reminder that their ultimate goal as a scout is to achieve their Eagle rank. (I don’t have any “in progress” pictures as I already had this one made, but it’s really easy to make)

Create your own custom Scouting Certificate

I found this site while looking for ideas for our 2012 Pinewood Derby. I made some certificates for our boys that looked great.

There are all sorts of options available for the certificates including various seals and location, ribbon options, borders and more.  All the text is editable and there is also a second space on the bottom right for another signature. Our committee chairperson was not able to make it to our Pinewood Derby so I removed that line. There is also a name line and a line below the “In Recognition Of” line.

Check it out! This a great resource for throwing together scouting certificates for any occasion.

Sweet Pinewood Derby Awards

We had our 2012 Pinewood Derby at the end of February.  For awards, I wanted to do something more than just the standard “Most/Best (Fill in the Blank) Car”. A couple years ago, I remember having Pinewood Derby Car Twinkies for snacks, but I don’t remember everything that was on them. You can do a search on Google Images for ideas, but at they’re most basic, split two Oreo Cookies in half and use the four pieces for wheels. The creme filling will help them attach to the Twinkie.  You could also use Lifesavers, Peppermints, or any other rounded candy.

This was an idea I found on Pinterest (one of my new favorite resources for finding cub scout crafts) via Brandy at Gluesticks. I could not find mini boxes of Junior Mints or Dots (the snack size you get at Halloween) so I substituted with a 5-pack of Juicy Fruit and 5-pack of Doublemint gums. I also picked up some boxes of Tic-Tacs that could be used as well. I must say, these awards were a HUGE hit with our boys!!
