Boy Scout Eagle Projects

Use these ideas for your cub scout or boy scout group to perform a good turn. Whether you need a boy scout eagle project or a cub scout project, these ideas can be useful to find an interesting topic and adapt it to your needs. Older boys can take on more difficult tasks that require more strength, planning, and hours of work. Younger boys need to have a task that is short-term, obviously beneficial, but still requiring of an effort. Being able to see an impact from the work done is a great reward for scouts and a lasting eagle project that required significant planning, leadership, and sweat is a source of pride.

I have a 3 year old grandson and I would like to do some projects that are on his level for enjoyment and as preparation for joining the Scouts

Terry - There is no preparation needed for a boy to join Scouts.  If there's a Lion Cub program in your area, he can join that in kindergarten.  Otherwise, he can become a Tiger Cub in first grade.  The Scouting program is designed to offer age-appropriate activities and it requires absolutely no studying, preparation, or practice beforehand.
Just play with him outside as much as possible and show him he can trust you and he's safe with you.
Toddler and preschool activities are usually simple playing but you can find lots of ideas by searching online for "toddler projects".

we have a wolf c in our pack who rcievs blood tansfusion and he wants to do a blood drive. I saw that it was under "Boy Scouts" only... My question is: Can Cub Scouts sponsor blood drives to and if so what type of bage would they be eligeble for?
Sep 11, 2012 - Scouter Paul
Ladi - Sure, a cub scout pack or den can organize or help with a blood drive.  Cub scouts can't give blood but they can certainly assist with a drive.  
There are a lot of miscellaneous patchs you can purchase at scoutstuff.org and I bet you could find one that would work for a blood drive, but there is no cub scout requirement that doing a blood drive would fulfill.

For one of our wood projects, we've decided to make bat houses, which has turned our wood project into a conservation project.  The boys will be working with the community to place these bat houses in the right areas.  But how do you top that?  Any thoughts on cool wood projects that aren't too pricy?

can a cub scout pack perform a U.S. flag disposal ceremony?
May 22, 2013 - Mark Kirkendall
Tamara,

Cub Scouts can; in fact, all US Citizens can.  But first, please call it a Flag Retirement.  Disposal has visions of trash being thrown out.  There are many Flag Retirement Ceremonies listed on the web.  The VFW has just adopted one standard retirement for their organization.  Many Boy Scout Troops conduct Flag Retirement Ceremonies.  Our Troop does one for Flag Day and our Rank Advancement Week.  Cub Scouts are still alittle immature but, with proper leadership, they can be made to understand the importance and reverance of the ceremony.
