Christmas Gift Tag

I finnaly got the chance to start making gift tags.

Why did we do this?

I thought I had a great idea for a cub scout activity. Lets have the boys dip chocolates. I am not sure we will do this again.

This is what happens when you have 9 wolf cub scouts (8 year olds) over to dip chocolates.The boys had a lot of fun. I really do enjoy being a scout leader.
