The Growing Wonders of Nature

Heart of America Council

Personnel: 5 Cubs and narrator

Setting: Cub Scouts line up on stage holding large posters upon which are appropriate pictures.  As each boy speaks his line he turns over his poster to show large letter which when they are all done will spell out the word GROWING. After the last boy speaks, a narrator at the side of stage steps forward and says his lines.

I might put the letters in with the picture so that the boys’ parts can be written on the backs in LARGE print.  CD

Cub # 1:       G: Growing things are all about

Cub # 2:       R: Rolling fields with grass do sprout

Cub # 3:       O: Only God can make a tree

Cub # 4:       W: We can all enjoy nature’s beauty

Cub # 5:       I: In this world many growing things there are indeed

Cub # 6:       N: Nature makes things grow from the smallest seed

Cub # 7:       G: God has given us all this to enjoy, making it lots of fun to be a growing boy.

Narrator: This month we’ve learned much,

                    About “Things that Grow.”

                    What fun it is

                    Natures wonders to know.

To close our meeting tonight, let us all join together now in singing, “America the Beautiful.”

Barnyard Fun

Baltimore Area Council

Cast: 7 Cub Scouts dressed in farming or outdoor clothes

Cub # 1:       You’ve seen our barnyard tonight in fun it did not lack.

Cub # 2:       Because in teamwork we were not slack.

Cub # 3:       To get each family involved, Cub Scouting has a knack.

Cub # 4:       And each of you as a part of our pack.

Cub # 5:       Can help our program be sharp as a tack.

Cub # 6:       By doing your share and not be caught slack.

Cub # 7:       So next month, one and all, we’ll look for you to come back!

Things That Grow

Setting: Boy comes forward on signal and reads script.

Cub Scout: The theme this month was ‘Down on the Farm’, I too, am a thing that grows. I need nourishment, and love, and attention to grow.  But most of all to grow.  I need my sleep. Thank you everyone, and good night!
