Cub Scout Crafts

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


Toilet Paper Tube Pen Holder

I got the idea for today’s craft from Shelley at Sew & Dipity. The craft is pretty simple but will prove itself extremely useful. I don’t know about you, but I can never find a pen or marker when I need one. I have a dry erase board for one of the vertical walls on my desk and this will work perfectly there.

You don’t even have to do it as fancy as Shelley or I did with the scrapbook paper, but if you have some lying around, it’s a great way to spice it up. Otherwise, you could find a design you like and just print it out on regular printer paper and use that, it really doesn’t matter. This was also my first Mod Podge project and I really liked it!


  • Toilet Paper Tube

Aluminum Can Crusher

Today’s craft is a recycling craft that can actually be a money maker for your pack, as it was for afectionknit, where I found today’s craft. I actually had some 2×4′s left over from my Belt Loop and Pin Display Case as well as some wood screws. Thus I only had to pick up a strap hinge and a handle for just a couple bucks to complete this.


  • 2×4 wood
  • Wood screws
  • Handle
  • Strap Hinge
  • Jar Lids

April 2012 Achievement of the Month – Tiger #5: Let’s Go Outdoors

April’s Core Value is Faith and the supplemental theme is Cub Scouts Give Thanks. While I could have chosen the Religious Emblem as our achievement of the month, I decided against it as it is generally not a craft-friendly award and the requirements are different based on faith. This months Achievement of the Month is Tiger #5: Let’s Go Outdoors, which features the Character Connection for Faith.
