This months Achievement of the Month is Tiger #5: Let’s Go Outdoors, which features the Character Connection for Faith.

Religious Knot Ceremony Display

For the upcoming April Core Value of Faith, I found this craft in the April Pack Meeting Resource Guide. This craft is a great aide in presenting boys with their Religious Emblem award. It is relatively simple to create, and as a bonus, you could very easily create different versions to aid in presenting other award knots, such as leader knots.


  • Plywood (or other wooden board)
  • Purple craft felt
  • Rope
  • Silver spray paint
  • Adhesive spray
  • Wood glue
  • Hot Glue gun

Single Use Antibiotic Doses

This may not be as big of a deal with cub scouts as it would be for boy scouts since with cubs we don’t do a lot of extended overnight camping and hiking trips. However, even when out on a day hike, we (and our cubs) don’t want to be carry a bunch of unnecessary weight. This is a great way to carry antibiotic ointment with you during those hikes or campouts. The problem is, even the single use packets you can buy are often WAY more than is necessary for a small cut or abrasion. These single use doses will give you just enough antibiotic ointment and won’t take up hardly any room nor add much weight to your pack. AND they’re quick and easy to make. You can find the original source of this craft, and other great camping and outdoors ideas, at


  • Plastic drinking straws
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Lighter or other flame source
