Help with traditional Scouting skills

Hi folks,

Now I have received my NHS letter, I amm in isolation for 12 weeks so, IF any of you out there want to learn knotting or anything else like that, why don't we do it via this forum and it would help me get through my 12 weeks!!!

Also, if it can be done, how about a badge swap?? I can get someone to post for me but how about you??

I see you have had lots of views on your idea.   Would be good to revise knots and I can perhaps teach Jessica some via skype to test her 

for a badge -whichever will qualify - if you could verify the outcome.  It would probably refresh me how to do it as well - can remember the reef knot 

but a bowline always confused me!

I have added to Kelly Roberts Camp at Home with a recipe for a cake to take to camp and also mentioned that I have a lot of home baking recipes

(passed on from family and friends) which people could be baking at home while they are spending more time at home.   May be it would

qualify them for Cook - Home baker badge - I am not entirely up to date with the badges now.  What do you think?

Also to spread the news if anyone asks you about knots can you mention are they interested in baking - I will send them on

some easy recipes.

Hope you are keeping busy and well through these difficult and changing circumstances.

Hi Elizabeth,

I will set up a new topic under all sections for home baking recipes if you want and some of your ideas can be added in there?

Yes that would be ok.  Interesting to see how many replies.
