Autograph Contest

Provide each guest with paper and pencil and tell him to get the autographs of as many other people as possible.  The person who gets the most autographs earns a Big Round of Applause.  For variation, ask that autographs be written with left hand.

Upon arrival, each person is instructed to introduce himself and shake hands with all the others with his left hand and to use only his left hand for any activity until everyone is present.


Dress Me
Circle 10 Council

Preparation: This is a great icebreaker for a den or pack meeting and it can be played just about anywhere.  It is best played with at least 4 players and the only equipment needed is a big, big old shirt.

Object of the game is to move the shirt from one player to another while they hold hands.  It is more fun to have players arranged Cub – adult – Cub – adult.

The first player puts on the big shirt and takes the hand of the next player.  The rest of the players try to take the shirt off the first player and put it onto the second without breaking their handhold.  The only way that this can be done is to turn the shirt inside out as it goes over the first player’s head.  Once it is over that player’s head and onto the next player, another player joins hands with the player wearing the shirt, and the first player becomes a dresser.  Depending on the number of players, the line can be extended until all the players have had the shirt on and then taken it off.  If there are enough players and shirts available, this can be played in teams as a race.
