November - Citizenship Slide and Poem

This Uncle Sam Pin was found at  Rather than a pin, glue a ring on the back for a neckerchief slide!         -thank you, GSLC District 28 RT for both of these ideas

Uncle Sam Pin (or Neckerchief Slide)

Uncle Sam Pin
Total Time 1 Hour Ages All Ages
Pin on a patriotic face that's sure to stand out in any Fourth of July crowd.

What you'll need

  • White craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Wooden craft spoon
  • Googly eyes
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Self-adhesive pinback

How to make it

  1. To make one, cut out a basic Uncle Sam-style hat (about 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide) from white craft foam.
  2. Use markers to color the brim blue and to draw red stripes on the top.
  3. Glue the hat to the handle of a wooden craft spoon (if necessary, first use scissors to trim the wooden handle so that it's shorter than the hat).
  4. Glue on googly eyes and a cotton ball beard, then draw on a small L-shaped nose.
  5. Attach a self-adhesive pinback (sold at many craft and bead stores), and your Uncle Sam pin is ready to wear.

Leader's Minute
One song can spark a moment,
one flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
one bird can herald spring.
One vote can change a nation,
one sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
one laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
one word must start a prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
one touch can show we care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
one heart can know what’s true.
One life can make a difference,
that difference starts with you.
