Yes, there is one -- I'm just not sure that I am up to the task of teaching *20* 6-8 year olds to knit!

It's part of a "textile" badge -- they have to learn about a few skills like knitting, sewing, needlepoint, etc and then pick one, learn to do it, and then talk to their troop about the experience.

I may try it with my daughter, as I have a needlecraft skills, but right now she is working independently (that is, not with her troop) on her art badge. She is a talented painter for her age -- in *my* opinion -- and I'm encouraging her to work on that first.
