Spark Of Genius

The following closing ceremony can be done very effectively by a den if the boys practice so they can speak their parts clearly. The lines can be written on a small card to help the boy's memory. Eight Cub Scouts line up on stage holding large cardboard light bulbs painted yellow, with cardboard rays fastened around the edge or use yellow pipe cleaners for rays. The light bulbs are made such that when the bottom is folded up and the light bulb is turned over it turns into a sun coming up.

CUB 1: Everyone has a spark of genius in them just waiting to be lit.

CUB 2: If they'll jump into things and not just sit.

CUB 3: Although we may not go down in history as the genius of our day.

CUB 4: We can help others in this world to travel life's way.

CUB 5: By sharing our sparks of genius with others that we know.

CUB 6: Thus helping ideas, along the way to grow and glow.

CUB 7: Remember the spark of an idea we may share with a friend.

CUB 8: Can be added to by others and become a genius idea in the end.

ALL: And we can be happy because we helped in our small way, just as we in Den ____ have each had a part in this thought for the day.

All Cubs then fold up the bottom of the bulbs as described above and turn them over to make suns and say: "May you have a good night and even brighter tomorrow."
