I always thought it was a little awkward for a scout to try to pin the mothers' pin to his mom's shirt when he got an award. That's why, shortly before my twins joined Cub Scouts, I was excited to come across this tutorial from Creative Chicks for a Cub Scout Mother's Pin Necklace.
Here's my version:
And here's J pinning on my first Bobcat Mother's Pin of the night. (T got his about 30 seconds later--sadly, no picture).
And, it'll be such a great place to keep all the pins. Won't it look great when all my boys are Eagle Scouts and the necklace is full of all their pins?!
