Cub Scouts Give Thanks - November Theme - LDS Religious Square Knot info - LDS Activity Days - Writing a Thank You note

Cub Scouts Give Thanks - November Theme

Thanks to Mary Halvorson for donating this idea. She is a Webelos Den Leader from Pack 68 of the Hobble Creek District, Utah National Parks Council.  

One of the requirements in the LDS Faith in God booklet that counts towards the BSA Religious Square Knot reads: "Write a letter to a teacher, your parents, or your grandparents telling them what you appreciate and respect about them." If you want to take this a step further by teaching boys how to address an envelope it's an experience you won't forget. Do they know their own address for a return address? Do they know where to write both the mailing address and the return address? Do they know where the stamp goes? Do they know their city and state? The first time I did this I thought it was a no brainer but truly the first experience for most of them. It will take longer than you think but the recipient will have a wonderful surprise!
