In the Designer's Words: "Turn an empty cardboard tube into Super Scout! This easy project is great fun for a Cub Scout den. Use the completed Super Scouts as place cards or a centerpiece for a Scouting event. It's so much fun to see each boy's personality come out in his Super Scout!"
Toilet paper tube crafts and cardboard tube kids' craft ideas are an amazing way to teach kids all about crafting and recycling at the same time. Tell your kids all about how reusing materials instead of tossing them is a earth-friendly way to get creative when you make these too-cute Super Scout Cardboard Tube Crafts. Made with paints and felt, these simple little kids' crafts are designed especially for a Cub Scout Den, but could easily be transformed for a Brownie troop, as well.

Why You'll Love This Recycled Craft

1. Foster Creativity: Making Super Scout Cardboard Tube crafts allows kids to express their creativity through painting and decorating their own unique superhero character. They can choose their own colors, patterns, and accessories to make their Super Scout truly one-of-a-kind.

2. Teach Environmental Awareness: By using recycled cardboard tubes for this craft project, kids can learn about the importance of recycling and reducing waste. This activity provides a hands-on opportunity to talk about sustainability and the benefits of upcycling materials in a fun and engaging way.

3. Promote Teamwork and Social Skills: Creating Super Scout Cardboard Tube crafts can be a collaborative activity for Cub Scout dens or Brownie troops.
