For a recent Cub camp, a leader wanted to run an activity (or "base") making plaster casts of animal tracks.
Unfortunately, the camp site is so well-used that the few animal tracks we get on the site tend to be quickly trampled down by hundreds of size three trainers, so I decided to provide some predictable tracks for the Cubs to cast.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
I made these from scrap wood (pine, about 21mm thick), using a scroll saw, glue, a sharp knife and a rotary tool with a sanding bit and the "dentist burr" bit.
To actually leave tracks, you need a mallet or a firm footstep.
