Cub Scouts can make this simple neckerchief on their own. Use it as a gathering activity with the Turn Back the Clock theme. To ensure that the loop the neckerchief goes through stays on, go over it with a little hot glue later.
Your Cub Scouts will make more even circles if you can find something approximately the right size to trace. Or you can provide a stencil for them.
Clock Neckerchief Slide
- fun foam (at least two contrasting colors)
- fine point marker
- brad type fastener
- leather lacing or chenille stem
- Draw two circles on two different colors of the fun foam with the pencil. One circle should be about two inches in diameter and the other should be about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
- Cut out the circles.
- Use the marker to draw clock numbers on the smaller circle with the marker.
- Glue the smaller circle in the center of the larger circle.
- Push the brad through the center of the circle and bend flat to the circle to form the clock “hands”. (You don’t have to wait for the glue to dry.)
- Cut out another very small circle and glue it over the center of the “hands”. (optional)
- Make a small loop with a piece of leather lacing or chenille stem and glue it to the back. This is the loop the neckerchief will go through. It should be about 1/2 inch in diameter.
- Let the glue dry before using.
