Hello fellow Scouters,
The Cub Scout theme for August is “Fun in the Sun”. But who can have fun in the sun if you get sunburned? Since it’s easy to forget to bring sunscreen or reapply it, here’s a kerchief slide that will guarantee sunscreen is always close by (at least while your Scout is in his Class-A field uniform).
This is nothing more than a small tube of sunscreen with a PVC sprinkler riser section hot glued to the back. To prevent accidental spillage if the cap isn’t fully closed, I put the kerchief slide ring closer to the cap so that the cap would be pointed up. And since it has some weight to it, I put a little extra glue around the ring to give a better bond between the sunscreen tube and ring.
So next time you have an outing in your Class-A field uniform, you can have sunscreen close by.
Have fun in the sun, and be safe!
