Keeping busy with Scouts!

Ian LOVES being a cub scout. He is now in the Bear Den. I really like the Den Leaders. They send homework home with the boys to do during the week. 

A week ago the boys went through knife safety and even made some cardboard knives to take home. Ian also came home with a bar of Ivory soap that he needed to carve. The leader also sent a little pattern for a bear. So Ian got to work and used my little key chain knife to carve his bar of soap.

 I think it turned out pretty good! Henry was beside himself to do this homework assignment also. He wanted to raid my soap stash and start scraping away but I had to explain Ivory soap is very soft. The bars of soap we have are not as easy to carve into as this one. I need to get to the dollar store or someplace where I can find a few bars of Ivory soap so Henry can give this one a try too.
 It was also Pinewood Derby time. Ian got to go to the sawdust shop with his Dad and shape his block of wood into a car.  He decided to go with a Red paint job with yellow lightning bolts.
His car didn't win any awards but he had a good time making it.

This little lady had a great time cheering for all the cub scouts.

Do you think Henry will be bored with Scouts when he finally gets to be one? He's doing all the crafts and activities now!
