Just One Word" Trick
Inland Northwest Council

You'll really have them at a loss for words with this one! Cut out the following letters from magazine or newspaper headlines (or draw black letters on paper and cut them out,)

J  N  O  O  R  S  T  U  W

Place the letters in any order on the floor or table (or any flat surface), Ask the players to rearrange the letters to spell "just one word".   If they give up, rearrange the letters to spell the three words, "Just One Word."


Flea Market

Crossroads of America

Set up the room and have the boys bring things they want to sell and have a flea market.

Name Tags
Crossroads of America


Use pieces of paper cut out in the shape of a silver dollar.

Which Country’s Coins
York Adams Area Council

Gather coins from different countries and place them on display, labeled with unique identifiers. Then list out on sheets of paper the different countries represented. Have folks match the coins to the countries.


How Much Does It Cost
York Adams Area Council


Cut out pictures of different items of interest to the Cub Scouts and have these mounted around the room. Using your greatest diligence (searching high and lo) try to come up with real, advertised “bestprices.” Have everyone try to determine (guesstimate) the price of each item and then let them compare to what you have found.
