my wife and I have recently been enlisted to coordinate some of the activities and projects for our 7 yr old's cub scout den. The previous den leader has only done artsy-crafty stuff, and due to the economy now has had his job shuffled a bit. When I was in scouts, it was more about survival and camping and hiking, not so much of the glue this and paint that for a christmas ornament. I have done web searching for a variety of projects, and found this forum and thought it would be a relevant forum. I have tools, a woodworking shop, minimal fundage, 2 jeeps to get us anywhere, and take a lot of pride in everything I do. I want to be able to guide these scouts before their mothers cry mutiny and remove them from a program that has helped many of us. I was on Instructables - Make, How To, and DIY for ideas, and like the cotton ball film canister thread here so far, as campfire starting should be a primal skill for a scout. Any other ideas? Thank you in advance for your help.
