How To Make A Snowflake
You can make snowflakes any time of the year. When you use colored paper instead of white, a snowflake turns into a fancy-flake.
Measure and cut 1 square of paper. Fold square in half. Then fold it in half again. Fold it once more into a trangle. Follow the picture directions. Draw a design on the triangle. Cut out the pattern. Open the paper and see a snowflake.
Make 3 snowflakes, one from a 6" x 6" square and 2 from 4" x 4" square. Punch holes in the flakes as shown. Use thread or string to tie the small flakes to the large flake. For a hanger, tie a piece of thread to the top of the large flake.
On half a white folded card draw or trace silhouette of a penguin.
Trace the same figure on other half of card.
Cut around card, allowing beaks of penguins to remain joined.
Color penguins with back paint or crayon.
Paint beaks yellow.
Spread penguins apart and paste around circular box or can.
Make a slit in top of can for insertion of money as indicated.

Eskimo Tie Slide
For the fellow who lives way up in Alaska, cut a cardboard circle, about 2" across. Glue an almond in the center. Draw on eyes, nose, mouth and bangs. For white fur, glue cotton onto the cardboard all around the face. Glue a pop top ring to the back with glue.
Aluminum pie pan
Assorted small stones
Leaf (bean shaped)
Sugar cubes (optional)
Plastic figures (optional)
Give each Cub Scout a pie pan. Use spray glue or Elmer's glue (spread around on surface of pan). Cover generously with salt. Use sugar cubes to build small igloos. Use regular glue to hold together. A toothpick with a string tied on it will resemble a fishing pole. Use half of a pod shaped leaf to make a canoe. You can purchase figures for an extra touch.
