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 them? 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 read under the picture.
We have a master list here on everything your child will need for camping.
Here’s the trick to putting the badges on your sash. Your glue gun (click here). That’s it! We love our glue gun and use it for everything from gingerbread houses to STEM challenges. Need a Kid Glue Gun Tutorial? We have that too, click here.
Why does this work on your sash? Most scouts only wear their sashes only on special occasions and they rarely need to be washed. I prefer to hand wash it if needed.

Thanks to another experienced Scout mom sharing her secret with me, I’m happy to pass it along to you.
Boy Scout Patches
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.
