The Cubs Are Coming

Heart of America Council

Personnel: 4 or more Cub Scouts

One Cub Scout at a time trots from the back of the room to the front shouting, "The Cub Scouts are coming! The Cub Scouts are coming! Then 2 boys enter carrying the United States flag and lead the pledge.

Octopus

Heart of America Council

Personnel: 6 Cub Scouts

Equipment: Poster with an octopus the boys have drawn

Setting: The boys form a line in front of audience

Cub 1: In tying knots, I am champ. With bowline or clove hitch,

Cub 2: An octopus, I like to hike

O'er underwater hills.

I 'left' and 'right' with just two legs,

Six others give me spills.

Cub 3: A patriot I salute our flag

The one that I'll fight for;

I don't salute with one hand,

'cause I salute with four.

Cub 4: In rowing boats I'm speedy.

My eight arms move me fast.

No matter how you use your oars

You'll come in tired and last.

Cub 5: I have two arms to gather wool.

Two arms to start the flame.

Two arms to cook my tasty meal.

Two arms to shoot fresh game.

Cub 6: I can pass all swimming tests,

The back stroke, floating or crawl.

Cause with eight legs in water,

We really have a ball.

All: We're a Cub Scout octopus.

But soon it will be neat;

We'll be Boy Scout tenderfoots

With eight tender feet.
