Blowtorch Project {Scouts}

Using his hand-made branding iron, Peter presses the design onto a piece of leather. 
Peter displays his finished brand: a mountain with the number 3 (for Troop 3, his future troop).

Would you let your ten year old son work on a craft project involving a blow torch?

Two years ago, Joseph's den worked on this very same Craftsman requirement.
Peter has been waiting for his opportunity to brand a leather neckerchief slide, and last night his waiting ended.

The Craftsman Badge is a real hands-on experience for Webelos, and one of our favorites to lead.

May I suggest an inspirational article for you today?
