Our Gifts and Talents (Webelos Showman & Citizen)





Brain Slide
Greater St. Louis Area Council


Materials: Art foam, pipe cleaner, tulip paint, glue

Cut a brain out of white art foam. Take paint and paint lines on it. Let dry. Glue pipe cleaner on back.

Artist Palette Slide
York Adams Council

In keeping with the theme of "gifts and talents," we can use a talent-type slide.


  • Standard slide materials but with backing shaped like an artist's palette (below)
  • Toothpicks
  • Paints

Rough cut the palette shape out and then let the boys use rasps and sand paper to help finish off the shape. Have them paint the palette white and then add "dabs" of different paints to be like the used palette. Finally, use pieces of the toothpicks to be paint brushes. (Paint them to look like brushes.)
