The tool box is one of the projects our cub scout pack builds. Its uses few materials and costs less than $3 per scout. This is a great beginner project. The cub scouts learn how to use a hammer, saw, glue gun, and sanding block.
It takes a little preparation to get things ready for the scouts. The instructable is in two parts, Preparation steps and Scout steps. Prep steps are done by the leaders prior to the meeting. The scout steps are done by the kids at the meeting.
