Good Manners Pin for Cub Scouts

Miss Manners move over! There are Cub Scouts in the room! Well, maybe our Cub Scouts aren’t etiquette experts, but they can earn their Good Manners pin from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.

Good Manners Pin Requirements

Earn the Good Manners belt loop, and complete five of the following requirements:

  1. Meet one new person, shake hands properly, and introduce yourself. Extend your hand, grip the person’s hand firmly, and gently shake hands.
  2. Talk with your family about polite language. Include “please,” “you’re welcome,” “excuse me,” “yes, sir,” “no, ma’am,” and so on in your talk.
  3. Explain to your den or family how good manners can help you now and as you get older. Copy the actions of someone you know who has good manners.
  4. Go over table manners with your family. Eat a meal together where the table is set correctly and everyone uses good table manners.
  5. With an adult, discuss what foods are proper to eat with your fingers. Practice eating some of these foods the right way.
  6. In your den or with your family, practice using good phone manners.
  7. Explain how treating things that belong to other people with respect is a part of having good manners. Show three examples of how you can show respect for others.
  8. Talk with your friends or family members about following the rules and having good sportsmanship when playing games. Then play a game with your friends or family members. After playing the game, tell how you showed good manners.
