Great Salt Lake Council

Ben Franklin – act out flying a kite, working the string up into the air,  and then scream when you get zapped

Constitution – We the People Approve

George Washington – I cannot tell a lie.  That was great!


Fireworks Cheer
St. Louis Area Council

Divide audience into two groups.  Have everyone in a circle if you wish.

One half of circle (audience): Place the palm of your hand in front of your mouth and keep it moving in a circular motion

while hissing.

Second half of circle (audience): Starting a couple of seconds after the first half, the rest of  the circle whistles down the scale. (Doh, Te, La, So, Fah, Me, Ray, Doh.) (or maybe jut have them do account down?? CD)

When the whistlers get to the bottom of the scale (or countdown), everybody responds with a well rounded Boom!

Repeat all and Boom twice,

Then repeat all again and Boom three times.



Washington's Farewell Address

Washington: Bye, Mom!" (He exits the stage.)

  • Because it can’t sit or lie
  • His razor ran on AC (alternating current) and he was in Washington DC.  (or he wanted to look like the guy on the $5 bill)
