Lights: “Blink, blink, blink”
Cub Scout: "Do Your Best"
Helping Other People: "Warm Fuzzy"
Pack: Yell the Pack Number
Old Lady: "No, I Don't Want To Go"
Once upon a time, in a CUB SCOUT PACK a CUB SCOUT
was learning about HELPING OTHER PEOPLE. The CUB
SCOUT helped an OLD LADY across the street. But the OLD LADY
did not want the CUB SCOUT to help her. The OLD LADY did not care
that the CUB SCOUT had been learning about HELPING OTHER PEOPLE or
that the CUB SCOUT and his PACK had set out to do good deeds. The
OLD LADY just wanted to get a TREE. But the CUB SCOUT
and his PACK were learning about HELPING OTHER PEOPLE and really
wanted to HELP OTHER PEOPLE and so the CUB SCOUT helped the
OLD LADY across the street. The OLD LADY thought what kind of a
PACK is this? The OLD LADY just wanted her TREE and
pretty LIGHTS. The CUB SCOUT said, "Nice OLD LADY,
my CUB SCOUT PACK and I are learning about HELPING OTHER PEOPLE.
I'll help you get your TREE and put your pretty LIGHTS on, if you
will just let me learn about HELPING OTHER PEOPLE by
getting you across this busy street". The OLD LADY sighed and
smiled and said "Thank you".
The House Where Santa Claus
Santa Clara County Council
This is my personal favorite
Audience Participation for the December Pack meeting. It is in the Cub Scout
“How To Book.” Commissioner Dave
several ways to lead this Audience Participation -
enter and tell the following story:
Old Santa has traveled many a mile to be with you. He has been impressed with
your preparations for the holiday season and has had a look into all your
homes. Tonight, Santa would like to tell you about a house you have never seen
before. It is the house where Santa Claus lives. While I tell you this story,
I will need your help for certain words. Every time these words are spoken, I
want you to make certain signs. Let’s all practice them before we start the
Then list the parts and the motions
Now, let’s begin our story.
After the story Santa says - Now old Santa must be on his way. He has one
parting thought for all of you. Keep the Cub Scout Promise and always do your
best. If you do, you can make it Christmas every day of the year. Merry
Another way to present the story without the aid of a
Presenter says, “I’m going to
tell you a story about the house where Santa lives. There will be certain signs
for you to make. Anyone seen not making the signs will have to come up in front
and help me.”
I always call up front one Scout or sibling for each part and have them make the
sign for that part (house, shed, reindeer,..) so the group can follow easier.
Besides involving more people in telling the story, they are actually living cue
cards for me so I remember what comes next!!! Commissioner Dave
