How it Works
As a Bear, red beads are presented for each three Bear achievements earned. After he gets his fourth red bead, he will receive his Bear badge at a pack meeting. Cub Scouts may continue to wear this emblem after ranks are earned until they become Webelos Scouts.
The Official Whittling Chip wallet card can be earned by Bear Cub Scouts by mastering the "Knife Safety Rules" on this page. The object is to teach a boy that:
"A Cub Scout knife is an important tool. You can do many things with its blades. The cutting blade is the one you will use most of the time. With it you can make shavings and chips and carve all kinds of things.
You must be very careful when you whittle or carve. Take good care of your knife. Always remember that a knife is a tool, not a toy. Use it with care so that you don't hurt yourself or ruin what you are carving."
