PROPS: One Magic candle - Drill 1/4" holes every 2 inches down opposite sides of a white candle.
Place scraps of blue and gold crayon in the holes. Melt paraffin and whip with eggbeater. Cover the candle with the whipped paraffin to give the candle a rough decoration.
1ST CUB: We will open the Blue and Gold banquet by lighting this candle. Most candles are nothing but wax and string. They can mean many things to each of us, truth, warmth, and loyalty. This is a special candle because in it we have mixed the colors of the Blue and Gold of Cub Scouting.
2ND CUB: The white represents a well-planned Cub Scout program.
3RD CUB: The blue represents the boys - full of fun, mischief and curiosity.
4TH CUB: The gold represents the well-trained leaders - helpful and interested in the boys.
5TH CUB: The flame, which draws from all three represents the spirit of Cub Scouting.
