Marshmallow Toaster Badge


I have commissioned a special badge with a goal of showing that the wearer is an expert at toasting marshmallows. In our scout troop, toasting marshmallows has almost become an art-form, and we hold regular troop-night competitions to start a fire and toast the best marshmallow.

If used in Scouting, at present it can only be worn on uniform for 1 year from the date of issue as a custom badge with approval from your county commissioner.

I will be requesting approval from the Scout Association to call this an official activity badge, they are not official activity badges, and does not have the scouting logo on the badge. I am obviously hoping the the Scout Association approves the badge and allows us to make it an official badge with the logo on it!

Its called the Marshmallow Toaster Badge.

Diamond Pickaxe Hard Enamel Pin-Badge

 

Following the success of my previous minecrafter badges, I have made some hard enamel versions of a diamond pickaxe. It is of amazingly high quality.

Fire Starter Badge?

We are endeavouring to get all our Scouts and Explorer Scouts into the spirit of survival in the outdoors, similar to the survival skills demonstrated by Chief Scout Bear Grylls on his TV series. With this in mind, we think that there should be a badge specifically for lighting fires, as opposed to the current badges that deal in the most part with cooking on them, as opposed to how they are lit.

We like to think of it as a Fire Starter badge.
