I've been absent for a good long while....partly because I've been busy, partly because I was using all of my blogging time to write about Once Upon a Time....but honestly, one of the things that has had me dragging my heels about diving back in is the self-imposed pressure to return with some spectacular account of an amazing costume I made or a kick-ass party I threw. This isn't that. This post isn't even going to have pictures, I don't think.
A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to help Max's Webelos den earn their art activity badge. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I printed out the requirements, ambitiously decided they would earn both their belt loop AND the activity badge, and planned out lesson 1 of a four-week series. I figured I would shepherd the boys through the requirements for the belt loop on the first meeting, and then ask their opinions on which of the other suggested activities we would try next.
