Our Gift and Talents (Webelos Showman & Citizen)



Who Am I?
Denver Area Council

Cut famous actors' pictures from magazines and when the boys come into the room, pin one on their back. Make sure the boy doesn't see whose picture is on his back. He then walks around the room asking questions of the other boys, which can be answered with yes or no. He must figure out who he is.

York Adams Council

This is a get acquainted game. The first person (the leader) hands a small object to the person to his left and says "My name is Arthur and this is Kilroy." That second person passes the object to his left saying "My name is Bill and Arthur says that this is Kilroy." The third person passes the object to his left, saying "My name is Hank and Bill says that Arthur says that this is Kilroy." Obviously everyone should use their real names. Keep it going all the way around the circle, if possible.

Outside Talent Practice
York Adams Council

Set up some stations outside (or downstairs or somewhere where the rough-housing won't disturb things) that the boys can "do." Here are some ideas for stations:

  • Balance the broom vertically on the palm of your hand and then walk 10 paces.
  • Walk a balance beam... blindfolded!
  • Juggle three tennis balls... four between two people

I think you get the idea.
