Be A Happy Clown

Longhorn Council

A den of Cub Scouts come onto stage dressed as clowns. One has a large sad mouth painted on.

Others have large smiling mouths painted on or half of the boys with sad faces and half with happy ones. Another way this could be done, if not dressed as clowns, the boys could have large clown faces cut from poster board and fastened onto fiberglass arrow shafts, thin dowels, yardsticks, etc. These could be held up in front of faces as narrator reads the following lines.

If your life is to be as happy,
As a Circus, bright and gay,
There is something you can do,
As you hurry through each day.

Be happy and cheerful,
And remember not to frown.
But give freely of your smiles,
And you can be happy as a clown.

For a smile costs so little,
But to others means so much,
So if everyone keeps smiling,
Our lives will have that happy touch!

When the line about frowning is read, boys holding sad clown faces take a step forward and when line about smiles is read those boys step forward with others.

Cubmaster’s Minute


Circle Ten Council

I am not a very important person, as importance is commonly rated. I do not have great wealth, control a big business, or occupy a position of great honor or authority.

Yet, I may someday mold destiny. For it is within my power to become the most important person in the world in the life of a boy. And every boy is a potential atom bomb in human history.

All about me are boys. They are the makers of history, the builders of tomorrow. If I can have some part in guiding them up the trail of Scouting, on to the high road of noble character and constructive citizenship, I may prove to be the most important person in their lives, the most important person in my community.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different, because I was important in the life of a boy.
