Time: 20 minutes
Equipment: Cuttlefish; carving tools (eg bobby pins, paperclips, toothpicks); paint; paper
Purpose/Topic: Nautical history and tradition
Show the Joey Scouts some different ways of marking the cuttlefish. Show them how a carved design can take paint and transfer it to paper.
Allow them to carve a design of their own choice on the cuttlefish. (Remind them that the raised areas are what will print on the paper.)
Apply paint to the cuttlefish, and stamp onto the paper.
