May Core Value: HEALTH AND FITNESS ideas for the Wolf Den, Bear Den and Webelos Den - Skits, Jokes, Run-ons, Game, Song, Crafts and Activities

May Core Value: Health and Fitness
Skits Jokes and Run-ons:
One Step at a Time
Directions: Boys are lined up and the Den Chief comes walking by and asks questions of each Cub Scout.
Den Chief: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Cub #1: I want to be a famous high jumper and win a gold medal like this (he jumps and falls down)
Den Chief: Oh, just one step at a time. (He picks up Cub #1 and moves on to Cub #2) Now what do you want to be?
Cub #2: I want to be the world’s greatest slam dunker! (He dribbles an imaginary basketball and slam dunks it and falls down.)
Den Chief: Oh, just take one step at a time. (He picks up Cub #2 and moves on to Cub #3) What do you want to be when you grow up?
Cub #3, #4, and so on each say they want to be a supper sport figure all fall down when they show what they want to be. You can use as many boys as you have in this skit. When the Den Chief reaches the last one, he starts to walk away and he trips and falls down.
All of the boys: (come to pick him up and say together) Just one step at a time, take one step at a time.

Set up a golf course around a yard or field using empty trash cans, traffic cones, boxes and other targets. Just as in real golf, players must try to kick the ball to each hole in the lowest number of shots.

 Singing action songs is a great way to stay physically fit.
Hokey Pokey
(Stand in a circle and as each body part is called, you put it into the circle and shake it. When it says to do the Hokey Pokey, everyone puts their hands high in the air and shakes them as they turn themselves around and clap hands. On “That’s what it’s” they slap their thighs, on “all about” they clap their hands. Repeat with each verse and body part.)

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out
You put you right foot in,
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!
You put your left foot in . . .
You put your right hand in . . .
You put your left hand in . . .
Continue through with shoulder, leg, arm, back, head, (or any other parts you want) and ending with your whole self.
