A PLYMOUTH TAIL
Something useful to have around in the Patrol or Six box for those winter nights in the Headquarters. A Plymouth Tail consists of a short length of rope, about 1 meter in length. Finish off one end neatly with any form of whipping - a Sail makers Whipping is ideal as it will stand more rough useage. The other end needs to be unravelled into the three strands for some 15 centimetres, and each of the three ends whipped neatly. Make up a Plymouth Tail for each of your Scouts or Cubs.
The whipped end is used for teaching knots, whilst the unravelled end is used to teach splicing.

MINIATURE KNOTTING BOARD
This idea came out of the Gilwell reunion of 1999. Give Scouts a postcard size piece of card, a drawing pin to make holes with, and some bits of thin telephone wire. As them to make tiny knots and stick the ends in the holes. This makes a tiny colourful knotting board which they can take home to show to mum and dad.
QUICK FIRE IDEAS
Not Brass Rubbing - Crayons, paper, and
out into the streets rubbing anything rubbable - man hole cover, tree bark, letter box,
CARDBOARD CAMP OVEN
This does work. You need a strong cardboard box, some heavy duty foil, 3 long metal pegs or skewers, small metal grid to fit in box, and six bricks. Cover the box completely inside and out in heavy foil making sure no cardboard is visible. Pierce three holes in two facing sides of the box, insert the pegs right through, and place the grid on them. Use the oven on bricks.
