How many of you have had to stop a meeting for the boys to look for a lost Cub Scout neckerchief slide?
How many of you have had to buy a replacement slide because your son lost his?
And how many of you found the lost slide after purchasing the replacement?
I have to add myself to all three of those categories! The picture shows what we found when my Webelos and I cleaned out one of his drawers.
Recently, I was helping my Tiger Cub get ready for his meeting. And I had a brainstorm. It’s so simple that I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before.
After putting the slide on the neckerchief, I tied the two ends of the neckerchief together and slid the knot up so that the slide would cover it.
Our boys usually take their neckerchiefs off whenever they’re playing an active game, so we don’t have to worry about the neckerchief choking the boy.
That’s it! End of worrying about lost slides.
What do you think?
