Water Wheel/Wind Mill

Bear E7b,c

Wendy, Chief Seattle Council

Set a condensed soup can on a Styrofoam tray and trace around it. Cut out the circle. Using a nail, punch a small hole in the center of the wheel, and decorate the circle with acrylic paint. Let dry.

To make the paddle wheel, cut another soup can circle out of the foam tray. Punch a small hole in the center of the wheel. Cut 8 equally spaced half inch v-shaped notches into the circle for the paddles. (To make a pattern to show where to cut the notches, cut a condensed soup circle out of paper. Fold the circle in half, and in half again. The folds will show you where to cut 4 of the notches. Cut the other 4 notches in between them.)

To make the paddles, cut eight 1½” x 2” rectangles from the foam tray. Cut ½’ notches into the short side of the paddles. Slide the notched paddles into the wheel notches.

Using a bigger nail or awl, punch 2 holes on opposite sides of a water or juice bottle, a couple of inches down from the top. Push a bamboo skewer through the small hole in the paddle wheel so the tip is just poking through. Slide the 1” straw onto the long side of the skewer. Push the long side of the skewer through the holes in the bottle, and then through the decorated circle, decorations on the outside.

Sand the bottle, and paint with acrylic paint if desired. (Sanding the bottle helps the paint stick better.)

Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today

Character development should extend into every aspect of a boy's life. Character development should also extend into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders should strive to use Cub Scouting's 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings
