Patrol Flag

The Eagle Patrol finished their flag at Thursday's meeting - but they needed a flag pole - and it needed to break in to for easier storage and portage to parade sites and campsites...

...so we bought a couple of dowel rods and some sort of PVC coupling at the local hardware store - but the dowel rods didn't quite fit into the coupling - so Scout just sanded them a little bit...

...until they fit nice and snug...

...the parade carry...

...the finished coupling - all for less than $3...

...a finished patrol flag - nicely done Scout...

At 14 months, Kidoodle also loves flags. Now I know how to make an inexpensive one "with" him! Great idea!
