Webelos, Artist Activity Badge

Artist has been a very fun break for the Scouts after working so hard on the Webelos Badge for Blue and Gold.

It works out great that they are also taking Art in school as well, and cover some of these things. Always pay attention to what they do at school. It will help save you time and keep your Scouts from being bored.

Other ideas for any Scouting activities can be found online, and Pinterest has been a great source for us Webelos leaders as well.

This is what Den 12 worked on for their Artist Activity Badge.

Required

1. Talk to an artist in your area or to your art teacher about the different occupations in the art field.  Make a list of them. We talked about jobs, and like I wrote they are taking art so it’s something they talk about in class as well.

2. Create a scrapbook (portfolio) of your Artist activity badge projects and show it to your den leader. This was a little tougher because we didn’t make things that go in a book. I took photos and this post is our portfolio. This also works as #11 of the Art Academic Pin (Display your artwork in a pack, school, or community art show…Blue and Gold or a Pack Meeting are great times to display your artwork too!)

Pick Five of the following Nine

3. Draw or paint an original picture out-of-doors, using the art materials you prefer.  Frame the picture for your room or home.

4. List the primary and secondary colors.  Explain what happens when you combine colors. Another leader came up with a way to incorporate the colors with a snack. She got icing, food coloring, and graham crackers. She discussed colors first then let them create their own.Colors
5. Using a computer, make six original designs using straight lines, curved lines, or both.

6. Draw a profile of a member of your family. We have a big dry erase board at the library. I brought in a light and the Scouts traced each other’s profiles.profilesnonames

7. Use clay to sculpt a simple object. I got a package of clay at Dollar Tree for each Scout and let them create.Will Nathan Jackson Gerald Dominik

8.Make a mobile, using your choice of materials. Our other leader found patch graphics to print for various events: Camping, Raingutter Regatta, Pinewood, Arrow of Light, etc. She had blue and yellow yarn and then the clothes hanger to tie them all to.MobileMaking Mobiles

9.Make an art construction, using your choice of materials. They just finished making a paper sculpture in art class the week before our meeting.

10.Create a collage that expresses something about you.

11.While you are a Webelos Scout, earn the Cub Scout Academics belt loop for Art.

In one longer than normal meeting that included a trip to the bathroom because of a storm warning we finished the Artist Activity Badge!

Resourcefulness—-Egg Drop

February’s Pack Meeting theme was Resourcefulness. Den 9 came up with the idea of an egg drop. Leaders and/or parents were to bring in items that they thought would help protect the egg.

We had:

Plastic bags
Cups
String
Duct Tape
Cotton Balls
Cotton Batting
Diaper
Shoe
Toilet Paper

Here is a game of “Will it break?”
