This is an excellent idea, kind of like the "study sweats" I used to wear
when I really had to put my mind to the books . . .
Ceremonies are also an important switch. As my wife says, the opening
ceremony lets the boys know that it is really time to be "Scouts." She
just laughs when I ask if the closing ceremony tells them they are no
longer Scouts ;-)
