Theme: Cub Scouts Give Thanks
Skits, Jokes, and Run-ons:
MAGIC MUD                                                           
( Utah National Parks Pow Wow Book 2010-2011)
You will need a den of 6 Cub Scouts and a sign that says "Magic Mud".
Setting: Boys are gathered around the sign in the center of the stage.
All: Did you ever wonder as you pass a little stretch of mud and grass, what nature may be hiding there, within this spot a few feet square? Let's gather round and take a look, and like the pages in a book, we'll study it with open eyes. Can soil like this hold a surprise?
Cub 1: Here's a freshly patterned animal track where a rabbit hopped across.
Cub 2: I see a stream of busy ants, carrying tidbits as they dance.
Cub 3: Look! A feather blue and gray dropped off by a screaming Jay.
Cub 4: Sprinkled here are sprouting seeds from lofty elms and sprawling seeds.
Cub 5: A pebble smoothed by action slow, formed a million years ago.
Cub 6: In a puddled spot not yet dried out, a water beetle swims about.
Cub 1: And here an eager plant is set, an early blooming violet.
Cub 2: A wiggle worm comes up to twitch; no one knows which end is which.
Cub 3: The mud itself, with food stores vast, from life that grew in ages past.
Cub 4: It's not all nature mud reveals: here's a candy wrapper and two toy
Cub 5: There's something moving-what's that now? I'll pick it up. A bee, oh! Ow!
Cub 6: Quick, here's some mud upon the spot, to take away the soreness hot.
All: In mud there are stone and living things, healing power for bitter stings. Through it flows the earth's lifeblood and evidence of a Creator. Our soil is really Magic Mud.
