Welcome to Scouting!
Do you have a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or child in Awanas? Are they earning badges?
Do you have the “honor” of attaching all of those merit badges?
The key is to remember that the sash is not worn all the time and doesn’t need to be indestructible or have badges sewn on. So? What’s the trick to putting on Scout Badges? Scroll down and find out below.
Also we have a master camping list on everything your child will need for camping as a scout!

Why does this work for attaching badges on the boy scout sash?
Most scouts only wear their sashes on special occasions and so they rarely need to be washed. I also prefer to hand wash the sash anyway if it is needed.
Other No-Sew Options:
E600 glue (industrial strength)
Badge Magic (iron on)
Thanks to another experienced Scout mom sharing her secret with me, I’m happy to pass it along to you!
Boy Scout Badge Placement on Sash
If you’re new to putting on Boy Scout Merit Badge patches start about 4 inches down from the fold.
All Eagle required patches go in the middle and all other merit badges go on the sides. The order does not matter.
