I am very happy to report that my little scout has earned his Bobcat badge on Monday night. He completed the requirements two weeks ago but had to wait to get the actual badge at a pack meeting.

They did a ceremony where each of the boys who earned the badge had to stand with a parent and the leaders came by and painted the boys faces with various colors which had meaning to each color.

 He likes scouts and can not wait to be able to do some of the outings that they plan on doing. He has taken the time to complete some of the electives and some of the achievements already so he's excited to be getting some beads to add to his uniform.

BLUE is from the sky. The paw print of the Bobcat on your forehead is the spirit of the bobcat. This reminds you to do your best on the Cub Scout Trail.

YELLOW is from the sun. The marks under your eyes will help you see the light of the Cub Scout trail and they symbolize the bright spirit of Cub Scouting.

WHITE is for purity. The mark on your nose helps you know right from wrong as you go along the Cub Scout trail.

RED is for courage. The mark on your chin reminds you to always speak the truth.

GREEN stands for the spirit of nature. The marks on each cheek will guide you to live in harmony with the great outdoors.
