This year's theme is Superheroes. Each den was encouraged to make their own table decorations for our banquet. With Trevor's approval, I came up with Super Scout.
Materials: empty cardboard tubes, paint (blue and skin tones), Sharpie, glue, googly eyes, yellow felt
Paint the cardboard tubes so that 2/3 is blue and 1/3 is a skin tone. I did this ahead of time so that we wouldn't have to wait for dry time during the meeting. I made a variety of skin tones so that each boy could choose the one he wanted.
Use the Sharpie to add details. For the face, draw a mask, nose and mouth. Draw a line to divide the face from the shirt, then add the features of the shirt, including a collar, pockets and buttons.
Cut a rough semi-circle of yellow felt to make the cape. Add a letter. We used a blue Sharpie and a stencil.
Glue the googly eyes and cape in place. That's all there is to it! Here are the five boys' Super Scouts. They have so much personality! Can you guess which one is Trevor's?
If you said the center, you're right. Trevor and I have a very similar aesthetic. Here is Trevor's Super Scout (left) next to mine (right).
Excellent work, Scouts! You're all Super!
