Lynn Whited related a story about a Scout who came to a winter campout
unprepared (no boots or mittens). While I'm sure the Scout learned a
valuable lesson about planning ahead and packing for camp, this would
have also been an opportunity to teach improvisation (no, not comedy
routines <g>). Two pairs of socks covered by plastic bags held up =over=
the pants with rubber bands, then the shoes would have made a
substitute for boots. A pair of socks covered by plastic bags and held
on by rubber bands over the coat sleeves would have kept her hands warm.
I'm fairly certain she would have agreed to the unsightly substitutes
after seeing how much fun everyone else was having while she stood
