Granted, it's not as old as some of the items on this list, but fun all the same. Were you ever a Girl Scout or Boy Scout? If so, you are going to get a kick out of this Scout memorabilia. Let me know what memories they bring back for you.

Cub Scouts Shadow Box

Cub Scouts Shadow Box Via Scouts
I'm collecting all of my boys' Scout memorabilia so that one day I can make them something cool like this.

***

This Cub Scouts Shadow Box is a great way to store and display all of your boy's Scouting memorabilia. The box is made from wood and features a glass top, making it perfect for displaying items like patches, awards, and other Scouting mementos. Inside the box, there are several compartments for organizing items, as well as a hinged lid for easy access.

The idea of a shadow box is to honor and preserve the memories of the Scouts' achievements. This box is a perfect way to do just that. It's also a great way to show off the accomplishments of the Scouts and to remind them of the importance of hard work and dedication.

Scouting is a great way for kids to learn valuable life skills, such as teamwork and leadership. It's also a great way to foster a sense of community and to develop relationships that can last a lifetime. This shadow box is a great way to celebrate the memories of a lifetime of Scouting.

Patches, Belt Loops and Pins

Patches, Belt Loops and Pins Via Fun Ideas
This is such a great way to display all of the achievements that a Scout earns through the years. It would work for a Girl Scout too.

***

Remember the sense of pride in each new addition, whether it was a patch signifying mastery of a skill, a loop won on a belt for participation in events, or the pin earned for exceptional achievement. Scouts would display these with honor on their sashes, vests, or banners, creating a vibrant tapestry of their scouting journey. Parents and mentors would beam with pride at each ceremony, as these small but significant tokens not only represented new competencies and experiences but also character development and personal growth. Collecting and cherishing these emblems became a cherished tradition, a visual chronicle of adventures and lessons learned.

Shadow Box of Eagle Scout Awards and Memorabilia

Shadow Box of Eagle Scout Awards and Memorabilia Via For When He's An Eagle ...
Earning an Eagle Scout is one of biggest achievements of a Boy Scout's life. What a great way to commemorate that.

***

The Eagle Scout Award is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America and is awarded to those who have achieved a high level of excellence in their scouting career. It is a great honor to receive and an even greater honor to be recognized for it.

To commemorate this achievement, many Eagle Scouts choose to display their awards and memorabilia in a shadow box. This is a great way to proudly display the awards and memorabilia that are the result of years of hard work and dedication to the scouting program.

The shadow box typically contains the Eagle Scout Award itself, along with other awards and memorabilia that the scout has earned while in the program. This could include merit badges, certificates of achievement, photographs, and other items that the scout has collected during their time in the program.

In addition to the awards and memorabilia, many Eagle Scouts choose to add personal touches to their shadow box. This could include a personalized plaque or a display of the Eagle Scout’s name and the date they earned the award.

The GS wallet was just that, a wallet (more like coin wallet). It went on your belt and you could bring your troop dues in it or keep your membership card in it. Dues when I was in,was a quarter at each meeting. We were all given membership cards for the current GS year also, about business card size.

I had them. They were hung from your belt to hold your dues money.
