I’m brand new and noticed not a lot of letterboxing activity in my area, so I’m trying to promote letterboxing.
Our cub scouts pack puts on a duty to God hike for our council area every year for scout Sunday. We have 10 stations set up around the local pond and at each station we have representatives from different churches in our city explain one of the 10 commandments to our youth. Usually they get something at each station such as a bead to string together into a bracelet at the end or something similar.
In order to promote letterboxing, we are thinking of giving them a clue to a find a stamp and a log they can complete. The idea is to get 10 stamps, each one related to one of the commandments. In the end they would have a picture representation of the 10 commandments.

If anyone is interested in helping me carve some of these, please let me know. I’m still very much a beginner and these may be biting off more than I can chew at the moment. After our event, I can mail your stamp back if you would like, if not we will hide them for others to find
