One of the new additions to the Cub Scouts Academics and Sports program last year was the Good Manners belt loop and pin. What a great addition!
I had some extra time at a den meeting last year, so we filled in the end of the meeting by starting on the belt loop. The den was able to finish it at home. At the den meeting I had them practice introductions and then they all wrote thank you notes to our Cubmaster. Then they gave them to her at the next pack meeting. She seemed to really appreciate them, even though some of the comments were very funny. I liked the one who said “Thank you for putting up with us even when we are loud.”
Good Manners Belt Loop
Complete these three requirements:
- Make a poster that lists five good manners that you want to practice. Share your poster with your den or family.
- Introduce two people correctly and politely. Be sure that one of them is an adult.
- Write a thank-you note to someone who has given you something or done something nice for you.
