Cub Scouts

This section is all about BSA Cub Scout resources.


Scout Run-ons

I have gathered these from a few sources around the Web. Please feel free to add to the collection.



  1. The first person calls from out of sight "Hey Fred, look! I'm in the top of a 100 foot tall tree."
    The second person: "But Joe, we don't have any 100 foot tall trees in camp.
    First person: "Oh noooo....", screams as he is falling.

  2. 1st person: "Excuse me, but is that the sun or the moon?"
    2nd person: "I don't know. I'm new to these parts too."

  3. Two boys playing quick draw:
    1st boy: "My Scoutmaster (Cubmaster etc.) can shoot a gun faster than any man in the West."
    2nd boy: "Really?" What do they call your Scoutmaster."
    1st boy: "Toeless Joe."

  4. 1st boy: "I heard you had an accident on your hike today."
    2nd boy: "No but I did get bitten by a rattlesnake."
    1st boy: "You don't call that an accident."
    2nd boy: "Heck no, he did that on purpose."

  5. DRAG: Have two boys drag a third boy across the stage.
    The third boy says: "What a drag!"

  6. Big Chief: Bring in 10 scalps, kill 5 buffalo bare handed and go into desert without water for a moon. Then I will pronounce you Big Brave. You understand?
    Indian Brave: Yes. What do I do to get pronounced Little Brave.

  7. A boy walks across stage carrying a car door. He is asked why he is carrying the car door. The boy answers so that he can roll down the window when it gets hot.

  8. The scene is a courtroom scene with one person as the judge. A person walks through the court carrying a sign or a skunk stuffed animal. The judge watching says: "Odor in the court! Odor in the court!"

  9. The three boys are in a line facing the audience.
    Second Boy in Line: This story begins with "Once upon a time"
    First Boy: Hey, wait a minute, I'm the beginning.
    Middle Boy: I'm the middle.
    Last Boy: That's nothing I'm the end.

  10. A boy is sitting on the bake with a fishing pole in hand. There is a NO FISHING sign nearby. The game warden appears.
    Fisherman: Are you the game warden.
    Game warden: Yep!
    Fisherman:Just teaching him how to swim(pointing to the worm on the pole)

  11. (Boy runs on interrupting leader): "We interrupt this program for an important news flash." Turns flashlight on and off, shining it in the audience's eyes. Most effective at a campfire.

  12. 1st Scout: Say wasn't there a rap at the door?
    2nd Scout: I didn't hear anything.
    1st Scout: Yes, I'm sure there was a rap at the door!
    2nd Scout: I'm sure I didn't hear anything.
    The first scout then goes to the door and brings in a coat and tells the audience as he holds it up for them to see. I knew there was a wrap at the door.

  13. 1st Scout: I went fishing last week.
    2nd Scout: What did you catch?
    1st Scout: Three bass and one smelt.
    2nd Scout: It did? Which one?

  14. A group of boys are discussing a football game.
    1st boy: I sure hope that the ________ wins.
    2nd boy: Well I'm sure that _________ will win.
    3rd boy: Why ______ will beat them 40 to nuthin'.
    4th boy: I can you the final score of the game before it starts.
    The Others: Oh Yeah? You're not that smart.
    4th boy: Nuttin' to Nuttin' of course (The others chase him off.)

  15. First Scout: I bet I can jump higher then a house.
    Second Scout: I bet you can't.
    First Scout: Yes I can. Did you ever see a house jump.

  16. Leader: I can make everyone in the audience into an old fashioned Indian.
    Audience: How?
    Leader: (Leader raises right hand and then says, "How!")

  17. Why are you pulling that rope for? Did you ever try to push one.

  18. Wire for Mr. Jones. I'm Mr. Jones. The clerk hands him a piece of wire.

  19. Two guys talking, first asks the second where he is going; second says fishing. First asks second what he has in his mouth and the first says worms. The first guy says good luck and slaps second guy on the back.

  20. Radio Announcer: We interrupt this program for a spot announcement.
    Dog (offstage): Arf! Arf! Arf!
    Announcer: Thank you, Spot.

  21. Scout 1:(running on stage) "They're after me!"
    Scout 2: "Who's after you."
    Scout 3: "The squirrels! They think I'm nuts!"

  22. Librarian: "Please be quiet, young man. The people near you can't even read."
    Scout: "Then what are they doing in a library?"

  23. Scout 1: "Did you hear how my mother strained herself."
    Scout 2: "No, how did she manage to do it?"
    Scout 3: "She ran through a screen door."

  24. Fortune Teller: "That will be $20 for two questions."
    Client: "Isn't that a lot of money for two questions?"
    Fortune Teller: "Yes, it is. Now what is your second question?"




Scripture and Prayer Trackers

Over the years, I have created several goal tracking handouts to give to my students. Many of them relate to reading scriptures, saying prayers, and writing in journals. Feel free to use the attached files and to distribute them in any way you want.

The Teaching Pyramid

This will soon contain a bunch of teaching models, lesson creation tools, teaching aids, and example questions to use with current LDS curriculum manuals. I'll show you how to be so good at creating lessons that, just maybe, the Church will call you the next time they need a manual written.
