Pockets (Webelos Communicator & Citizen)



Trapper Trails Council

Pass out a few small treats to the audience. Each time they hear the word that indicates some direction they move the treat to the person closest to them in that direction. A few could be bigger or wrapped to appear more special.

In Front

The Cub Scout year is filled with such fun. Right at the end of the summer the pack has a grand round-up to invite new cubs into the pack. After the Webelos have Left to join the troop there is more room for all the new Tiger Cubs and Bobcats

In the fall all the Cubs LEFT bags on the doorsteps for the neighbors to fill. After the service projects, caroling, and holiday crafts there were not many days LEFT in December.

The Boy Scouts from the troop invited the Webelos to their camp at the Klondike Derby. Looking to the RIGHT and the LEFT they found the troop's sled RIGHT IN FRONT.

At the derbies the excited Cubs stood IN FRONT to see the racing. Did you see the one that LEFT the others behind in his dust?

IN FRONT of the Pack at the Blue and Gold Banquet the Cubmaster was careful to give the boys their RIGHT awards.

The fun continued with scout shows with displays and activities jam packed RIGHT in a row. What Cub in his RIGHT mind could forget the fantastic time at summer camp?

Den meetings, field trips, Pack meetings, outings galore! You had better WRITE it all down because you would certainly feel sad, if you were LEFT behind.

How To Build A Thingamajig
York Adams Council

Doodads: Clickety-clack, clickety clack

Dingford: Whiz, bang, boom

Freedistant: Whoosh, whoosh

Higoricky: Snap, crackle, pop

Scatereekus: All sounds together

Very few families these days can get by without a thingamajig. Sure you can buy one at the local hardware and appliance store, in all sorts of colors, sizes, shapes, makes and models, but as easy as they are to build yourself, you should just get a kit and put it together. Here are a simple set of instructions for building your own thingamajig...

The Doodads of the thingamajig kit are stored in the bubble-wrap gizmo and are stapled with the purple assembly Dingford to the left-handed Freedistant. The assembly Dingford should be placed in an upright position on any corrugated doomaflatchy or Freedistant to complete assembling the Doodads. Carefully remove the gizmo from its containeration of the Doodads from the Freedistant and lay out the Doodads in parallel with the assembly Dingford and assemble the Doodads in the order listed. You will need two fringhoppers with a 4/3" gagglehump for the Higoricky, and you'll have to use penpoppers to complete the riggeration.

Using a witchifiggle, carefully punch 1/2" what-nots through the assembly Dingford and Freedistant, where the Higoricky will attach. The what-nots are there to capitrate the hoosie Higoricky that will beefling the Doodads together.

Next frammis the chingus to the Freedistant, making sure the whatchamacallits are catiwompus to the hootnanny and the Higoricky, as shown on the assembly Dingford. If it is reversed, the thingamajig will not work properly.

Tighten two fistaroud valves underneath the Freedistant using the hickeys from the Doodads to on from one doodad to the other. Now refracker a jigger to the the demisantis and the doorfunkey near the whatchamacallits. Put a dingus on each loose enough so that the thingamabob can discombobulate and rotate easily, or it might XXXX and fly off and hit someone in the doohickey.

That finishes the instructions. If you've followed them carefully, you should have a well running thingamajig. When you turn over the Scatereekus.
