I like to print them 20x30 at Costco for $10 on photo paper and then attach them to a dollar store foam poster with spray adhesive. It keeps them sturdy and from getting hurt as easily this way. To do this, attach it with clothes pins and do half of the poster at a time. We also have a local place that will print them 24x36 for $10 on regular paper. I'm sure you have one by you also. The bigger size lets everyone see if from anywhere in the room.

Cub Scout Values

As a Cub Scout, you do your best and you help others. You learn the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. You also learn what they mean.

The Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
And to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
WHAT THE SCOUT OATH MEANS
Before Cub Scouts agree to the Scout Oath or Promise, they need to know what it means.
On my honor I will do my best … Saying “On my honor” is like saying “I promise.” It means that you will do your best to do what the Scout Oath says.
The Scout Oath has three promises. Let’s look at what they mean.
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law … A duty is something you are expected to do. At home, you might be expected to make up your bed or take out the trash. You also have duties to God and to your country. You do your duty to God by following the teachings of your family and religious leaders. You do your duty to your country by being a good citizen and obeying the law. You also promise to live by the 12 points of the Scout Law.
To help other people at all times … Many people need help. A friendly smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By helping other people, you are doing a Good Turn and making our world a better place.
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight … The last part of the Scout Oath is about taking care of yourself. You stay physically strong when you eat the right foods and get plenty of exercise. You stay mentally awake when you work hard in school, learn all you can, and ask questions. You stay morally straight when you do the right thing and live your life with honesty.
The Scout Law

  1. I love this -- but our motto, law, and promise are slightly different wording here in Canada. Is there any chance of getting an editable copy so I can make it match?

    1. What is the wording you have in Canada?
