- While Basketry is fun, it also teaches patience and the importance of reading the directions before you start.
- Note that in 2004, a third basket was added to the requirements. Allow 10-20 hours to complete the three baskets.
- Basketry may now be difficult to complete during summer camp. Consider starting the baskets ahead of time.
- 3a. Save the more difficult square basket for last. Buy a larger kit like the BSA Square Basket so you have more room to work.
- 3b. The Round basket is easier for many than the square basket. Still consider the larger BSA Round Basket kit.

- Consider the BSA Campstool Seat kit.
