Cub Scouts can now get a DIY badge – this should ensure the next generation of Home Improvement enthusiasts, and we think that is a great idea.

To complete the award and claim the badge they must:-

1. Show the safe use of, and how to take care of, tools such as a hammer, a saw, a screwdriver, spanners, pliers, a hand-drill, a glue gun etc.

2. Show how to prepare and paint a vertical surface with paintbrushes, roller or pad and show how to clean them.

3. Help design and make two items from the following:

a nesting box or window box

a box for storing tools, pencils, tapes, etc

a rack for keys, mugs or coats

book-ends or bookstand

a shoe rack

notice-board for camp

letter holder

towel rail
