Mr. Kerplunk
Northwest Suburban Council


Announce him as Mr. Kerplunk the world renown spitter. He could be French, German, etc., with the appropriate accent. He says he will demonstrate several of his famous spits for the group. An assistant holds a bucket across the stage for Mr. Kerplunk to spit into (tap on the bottom of the bucket to create the special effect). Here are some examples of spits to use but be creative in creating your own:

1) Short Shot: He spits; sound effect comes immediately.

2) Ricochet Shot: He spits for a sidewall (tree etc. if outside) and watches it bounce around before it hits the bucket.

3) Long Shot: He spits and follows the long arc with his head; sound made after a long pause.

4) Fast Shot: Sound effect is made before he spits.

5) Super Shot: Advertised as the most famous. Spends a minute getting mouth full of spit, checks bulge out and finally spits. Guy in front stands up and wipes water or raw egg from eye.

What Am I?
Northwest Suburban Council

Equipment: None
Formation: Circle

The Cubs sit in a circle. One Cub goes outside the room, while he is away the others decide what he should be when he comes back. If they decide on a policeman, for example, they call him back and he has to ask each Cub in turn what he has to buy for himself. One will say #674529 boots, another a whistle, another a flashlight and so on.  If the shopper goes right round the Pack without guessing what he is, he must go out again, and the Cubs will choose something else.


What Will I Be?
(Cub Scout & Webelos Scout Program Helps 1986-87)

This is a variation of charades.  Play by den family teams, with all members of the family taking part.  Give each den family five minutes to decide on a career they will dramatize and practice doing it.  Let the Cub Scouts and other children do most of the acting.

Example:  Electrician.  First boy acts out unscrewing in a table lamp socket.  Second boy strips insulation off a wire and attaches to screw pole of the socket.  Third boy flips the wall switch.  Fourth boy pantomimes joy when bulb lights up.

When the den family has completed its pantomimes, other dens try to guess the occupation.  First one to guess scores a point for the den.
