The Yardstick II
The importance of the ages 6 - 11, the Cub Scout years.

Pack 715, Scouter Joe Wollet

Props - You will need a standard yardstick with marks at the 3", 5.5", “7”, 9" and 11" distances from one end. These correspond to the ages of 6, 11, 14, 18, 22. Mark both sides.

Dave’s Variation - Prep yardstick by sawing into the yardstick from both sides at the designated marks. Be careful - do not cut all the way through. Leave enough that the stick is still firm.. Have a second uncut yardstick to hold up.

Look at this yard stick as your son's life. Each half inch equals 1 year. Thirty six inches - 72 years, the average person's lifespan. At 1/2" (1 year) he is cruising the carpet and furniture, getting into all kinds of things he shouldn't. At 3" he's six and is in first grade, and excited about school. At 5 1/2" he's eleven, and is moving on to Jr. High or Middle School. At 9" he's eighteen and graduating High School. You're busting your buttons with pride for him in his cap and gown. At 11" he's graduating college and has moved on to his own life and family.
