Clock Neckerchief Slide

Clock Neckerchief Slide

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.

Materials

  • pencil
  • fun foam (at least two contrasting colors)
  • scissors
  • fine point marker
  • glue
  • brad type fastener
  • leather lacing or chenille stem

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. Cut out the circles.
  3. Use the marker to draw clock numbers on the smaller circle with the marker.
  4. Glue the smaller circle in the center of the larger circle.
  5. 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.)
  6. Cut out another very small circle and glue it over the center of the “hands”. (optional)
  7. 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.
  8. Let the glue dry before using.
