How many of you does this sound like? I had our April pack meeting all set to go and planned out, it was going to be great. I had all my ceremonies, props, activities, etc. Everything was ready. Then, a couple hours before pack meeting, I get a text message from our Committee Chair that we can’t use the gym at our church building where we meet because another group is using it. This means that we have to use one of the smaller rooms which won’t fit any of our games, activities, nothing. Sound familiar?
So, at the last minute I had to come up with a whole new pack meeting. The core value for April was Faith so our pack meeting was centered around that. With little ideas coming to mind, I jumped immediately to Baloo’s Bugle. In there I found instructions to make a simple neckerchief slide out of a pretzel, some craft foam, and pvc pipe. There is also a great story to go along with it that you can share that tells the history of the pretzel and how it relates to faith (see below). Unfortunately, I only have pictures of the finished product, but it’s a very simple craft so the step-by-step pictures really aren’t necessary.
- 1/2″ PVC pipe 1-2″ long
- Craft foam
- Hot Glue
