Scout Neckerchief Slide Crafts

Scout neckerchiefs are often held on by neckerchief slides--or woggles, as they are commonly called. Making woggles is a popular craft activity for scouts and offers many possibilities: Scout groups can make slides to go along with an activity or merit badge they are currently working on, individuals can make personalised slides, or a whole group can make a slide representing the group. Woggles can easily be made with regular household materials, although skilled scouts can make more complicated and intricate slides.

Activity-Specific

Prepare a scout group for an upcoming activity by having them making a neckerchief slide with materials related to the activity. Give each scout a base, such as a 1/2-inch long piece of 1-inch diameter PVC pipe. Using an appropriate glue, the scouts can attach a variety of materials. For example, if the scouts plan on rock climbing, they can glue stones to the base. Or, if the scouts are working on a computer-based badge or activity, the parts of an old keyboard or motherboard can be used to decorate a woggle.

Rope Knots

Knot tying is a common skill in the scouting world. Using a PVC pipe base, some nylon rope, and a lighter, a scout can show off a newly learnt knot with a knot woggle. Tie the knot in a nylon rope, cut off the extra rope, use the lighter to heat seal the ends so it won't fray, and glue it to the PVC pipe.

Campfire Woggle

To commemorate a camping trip, scouts can create a campfire woggle using orange and red foam board cut to look like flames, three or four small sticks (no more than 2 inches long), a PVC pipe base and glue. After cutting out the flames, glue them to the back of one of the sticks. Glue the rest of the sticks, in a pile resembling a campfire, to the stick with the flames. Finally, glue the whole campfire to the PVC base.
