Top gift picks for cub scouts

It's that time of year – time to start thinking about GIFTS! I really can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner, but it will be here and gone before we know it. So what are the most popular gift picks for Cub Scouts?

This year, I wasn't sure, so I went to my trusty Facebook fans to figure out exactly what their kids wanted for Christmas for ideas! We got some really good ideas, and I've narrowed down the list to 10 perfect gift picks for Cub Scouts this Christmas!

1. Hexbugs

Talk about some fun! These robotic bugs will keep your kids occupied all day long!

2. Tent

A couple of months ago, I also asked on my Facebook page what your favorite tent was! The results were definitely in favor of the Coleman Instant Tent. With setup in less than 60 seconds, how can you go wrong?!

Check out all the tents that were recommended by Cub Scout families!

3. Hammock

Perfect for camping with its small storage space, this hammock is a great addition to any kids camping accessories!

4. Robot Kit

Perfect for kids who love robotics but are just getting started, this robot kit is a great STEM activity to encourage and inspire! This kit can be transformed into 11 different robots, so the possibilities are endless!

5. Pie Iron

A pie iron is a great tool to have on your camping trip! The first time I used one was at the Philmont Training Center. It's a fun tool! There are so many things you can make with pie irons, including sloppy joes and homemade Pop-Tarts. Check out these recipes!

6. Metal Detector

There's nothing more fun then going around and trying to find a hidden treasure, am I right?! This one isn't just for the kids- anyone would love a metal detector!

7. Rocket Kit

Isn't rocket building exhilarating? You get to build it, then watch it go “boom” in the air! This rocket kit is great for any kid who loves to build and see their projects in action!

8. Model Train Starter Set

Train sets are a timeless gift – one that people keep for years and years! This starter set is great for kids who want to get started in the train-building saga!

9. Night Vision Goggles

Let's have some fun at night with these night vision goggles! These will come in handy for fun games during your campouts. With these goggles, you can see up to 30 feet away in the pitch black!

10. 3D Pen

Have you ever heard of a 3D pen? If not, you're missing out! This pen is AMAZING and does just what it says – it draws 3D objects! This one is truly awesome.

So, there you have it! Christmas gift ideas straight from YOU!
