Wolf Neckerchief Slide Craft

Homemade neckerchief slides are a Scouting tradition. In fact, the Boy Scouts in our troop all use homemade slides. I can’t think of a single Scout in our troop who has the official BSA Boy Scout neckerchief slide.

This slide is a fun way to get Cub Scouts involved in this tradition. It is especially appropirate for the Wolves, since it is a wolf slide.

For young scouts, I recommend you trace the pattern on the leather so they can just cut it out. Also, be careful using hot glue with scouts. Webelos might be able to use the hot glue gun (depending on their temperament) but for younger scouts an adult should do the gluing.
