Boy Scout Law Font Art Printable

Brandon crossed over to Boy Scouts from Cub Scouts on Friday evening. In an effort to help him memorize the Scout Law and recognized it as a part of his daily life, I've created this "poster" to frame and hang on his wall. I thought other parents might want to do the same, so I'm sharing it here. Feel free to print for personal or troop use, but in the spirit of Scout brotherhood, please do not use for commercial purposes.

Scout sister Clair was kind enough  to let me know that I had friendly and helpful reversed. I'll work on fixing that and getting the corrected version up. Here's the Scout Law so that you and your scout can learn it properly:

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
