Mopping Him Up



  • Indoors
  • Equipment: 1 dish mop; a pail or bucket
  • Formation: Circle

The Cubs stand in a large circle with the pail in the middle. They all hold out their hands. One Cub with the mop walks round the inside of the circle and taps someone on his hands. He then rushes to the pail, drops the mop in and tries to run back and take the other Cub's place. Meanwhile, the moment the Cub in the circle is tapped, he dashes to the centre, picks up the mop and tries to touch the first Cub before he has taken his place.

If he is not successful, he becomes the Cub in the centre.

Note: If the room is very long and narrow, the Cubs may be lined up at one end of it with the bucket at the other.

Variation: Use rolled up newspaper and tied with string, with a chair placed in the centre of the circle. One Cub goes around the inside and hits a Cub on the backside, runs to the centre, places the news-paper on the chair and runs back to the vacant spot before the hit Cub can retrieve the newspaper and hit him back. If the newspaper falls off the chair, the person hitting must pick it up and place it on the chair. Place in two or three rolls to really get the game going.
