Cub Scout Projects

Thought I'd posted this before but I guess I didn't! 

Oldest son started Cub Scouts last year. If you're involved in Scouts you know the boys get patches for various things but they don't go on their uniform (unlike Girl Scout vests/sashes). You, as parent, also get parent pins when your son moves up. 

I needed a place for those patches and pins. Pinterest search gave me my ideas. 

Patch banner

Parent Pin Ribbon

I love how they turned out. The banner should hold patches throughout Cub Scouts and hopefully Boy Scouts. The ribbon has the colors for Cub and Boy Scouts so I can keep them all together. 

Happy First Day of Fall!

Yeah, I know, post is a bit late but oh well. 

In room mo for my youngest son's pre-k class at church. First day of my favorite season called for a special treat! Browsed through my pantry.

VoilĂ ! 

My fall snack mix! You can add whatever you like to these (I make lots of variations!). Kids love snack mixes! 

For this one I used popcorn, thin pretzel sticks, and candy corn. I created a little tag with fake fall leaves and scrapbook paper. You could do this with any holiday or season. Get creative!
