Crafting with Scouts

Kunin Felt is very pleased to provide products and inspiration to crafters worldwide. Our youngest crafters are a focus and we recognize the importance of craft projects for kids in the classroom, camps and scouts. On our Design team we have a kindergarten teacher, room mother and a Girl Scout leader.

Laura Kelly Walters designs projects for our Scout Saturday blog posts. She is a creative talent and a dedicated Scout Leader. These projects tie into badges and activities that are part of the scout program. Why is this important? “Scouting creates so many opportunities for girls to grow and learn about themselves and their world with a focus on personal and community responsibility.” The Girl Scout Law is learned from the earliest stage of Girl Scouts in the Daisies through a series of patch earning experiences that create a colorful daisy.

 

This is the Girl Scout Law.

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

We strongly believe in the importance of supporting Girl Scouts. Laura Kelly Walters, “Learning and discussing the meaning of the different petals helps girls develop valuable skills that will support their success throughout their entire lives. Extending the conversation to include crafting and making certainly enhances the experience and make great memories.”
