Big Hand Applause: Leader says "Let's give [name] a Big Hand." Everyone holds up one hand with palm out.


Big Hand With Feeling Applause: Leader says "Let's give [name] A Big Hand." Everyone holds up one hand with palm out. Then leader says "With feeling" and everyone "feels" with their hand while it's up in the air.


Broken Arm Applause: Hold your arm out, hanging limp from the elbow, and shake it.


Fred Flintstone Applause: Shake hands over head and yell "Yabba-dabba-doo!"


Whip Applause: Pretend to snap a whip and yell "Yee-Haw!"


Pole Vault Applause: Stand your ring and middle finger of one hand on the opposite arm (like legs). Have them "run" down your arm toward your wrist, soar into the air, and land as a single clap with both hands.


Relay Applause: Have one Cub in each row or section start this one. They will clap twice and then clap the hand of the person next to them. They continue to clap in unison in this manner until everyone in the room is clapping.
