Corps of Re-Discovery

So a modest little packet came the other day.  It was just this kit to make a coin pouch out of leather.  I was amazed by it simplicity, Because everything that you needed to make a frontiersmen coin pouch was right here all together.  No cutting of leather, no searching for string.

We even went online to Corps of Re-Discovery to see what we could purchase next to accompany our studies.  I think the Bear claw necklace kit might be something that my Cub Scouts den, the Bears could do as an inexpensive activity.  I mean I wouldn’t have to spend all day in the Michael’s or Walmart looking for all the items needed to do this craft.  What a time saver!

The Coin Pouch Kit is $4.99, and I think it’s a great little kit, not only with the reasonable price, but also with your time to collect everything and make it look “cool.”  

The Corps of Re-Discovery is a home-school family that traveled the United States in an RV experiencing life and learning about our ancestors and how our country was built.  They work together as a family to bring these creative kits to us.  Check out the Corps of Re-Discovery, I’m assure you that you will find something that would enhance your studies of American Indians, Frontiersmen, and the Pioneers of America.
