We'll probably do a new slide each month, which will help the boys build a collection, which is one of their requirements (at least it is for the Wolf Scouts). For our first slide we did an easy bat, which I thought was a good choice for the month of October.
1.5" black pom poms
.5 or .7mm googly eyes
1/2" conduit, cut into 3/4"long pieces (I used electrical conduit because it was cheaper than pvc pipe, but either would work, and I used a pvc pipe cutter that we already had to cut the pipe. A hacksaw would work also.)
cardstock for wing pattern
low temp hot glue gun (so the boys don't burn themselves)
Then glue the wings to the conduit piece. My conduit had black writing on one side so to hide it I glued the bat wings over it.
All done and ready to be worn!
