The Webelos Scouts have more fun if you set up a few of these for each meeting. Set up stations and have the Cubs rotate through them. All these activities can be done for both the Boy Scout Oath (Promise) and the Boy Scout Law (12 Points).


#1: Repetition
Write the Oath/Promise on posterboard and display it every den meeting. Recite it together each meeting. Let the Cubs recite it from memory if able.

#2: Line up the Lines
Write the Oath/Promise on strips of paper in large letters. Mix up the strips and have a whole den challenge. One by one, a Cub hops to the strips, grabs one, and brings it back to the group. The next Cub hops up and gets another strip and brings it back to the group. Hopping is done to give the group time to arrange the strips in order. The group has to agree on how to arrange the strips. When done, they recite the Oath/Promise together.

#3: Line up the Lines Relay
Divide the boys into teams of 3-4 boys. Each team has its own set of strips. Repeat as in "Line up the Lines."

#4: Line up the Lines Contest
Give each Cub Scout a set of strips. Let them race individually to finish correctly.

#5: Pick-up Sticks Game
Write the Promise on craft sticks or paint stir sticks. Let each Cub practice by dropping and reassembling these by himself. Or divide the Cubs into teams, with each team having a set of sticks. One by one, the Cubs go to the table, pick-up then drop the sticks on the table and reassemble them. Have an adult tally the score for each team (award 1 point each time the Oath/Promise or Law is assembled correctly).

#6: Picture Craft
Have each boy write the Oath/Promise on craft sticks. Then glue the sticks to cardboard in order. Punch holes in the top of the cardboard and tie a pipe cleaner through these or hot glue a magnet strip to the back.

#7: Roll the Dice Game
This requires one dice. Each boy rolls the dice and depending on what number comes up, he performs one of the requirements of the Bobcat trail. Score points for each boy who does the task correctly. Add some flavor - let a roll of 5 yield an extra roll.
1 = Boy Scout Oath & its meaning
2 = Boy Scout Law & its meaning
3 = Scout motto & slogan
4 = Scout sign/salute/handshake
5 = Scout badge & BS uniform
6 = Tie a square knot

#8: Mystery Bag

Bribe the Cubs with a chance to reach into the "mystery bag," a bag filled with trinkets. At the beginning of the meeting, announce the "secret" Boy Scout requirement. Have the Cubs practice it once. At the end of the meeting, each Cub must perform/recite the requirement to the leader. If successful, he gets to reach into the mystery bag for a prize. Start easy so they succeed but each meeting, make the task more difficult.


The Arrow of Light award is to the Cub scouting, what an Eagle rank is to Boy Scouting. Quite simply, the highest honor a Cub Scout can earn. Better yet, the Arrow of Light is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on you son's Boy Scout uniform.

Arrow Of Light Badge Requirements
  1. Be active in your Webelos patrol for at least six months since completing the fourth grade (or at least six months since becoming 10 years old), and earn the Webelos badge.

    • Show your knowledge of the requirements to become a Boy Scout by doing all of these:
      1. Repeat from memory and explain in your own words the following: In addition, tell how you have practiced the ideal in each of these statements in your everyday life:
        • The Scout Oath
        • The 12 points of the Scout Law
      2. Give and explain:
        • Boy Scout Sign
        • Boy Scout Salute - keep your fingers in scout sign position
        • The Scout Handshake
        • Understand the significance of the Scout badge. Know its parts and tell what each stands for.
        • Tell how a Boy Scout uniform is different from a Webelos Scout uniform.
    • Earn five more Webelos Activity Pins for a total of eight. The Webelos scout has already earned three pins for his Webelos badge. The total of eight pins must include:
      1. Citizen,
      2. Fitness,
      3. Readyman,
      4. At least three more activity pins, one each from the outdoor, mental skills, and technology groups.
    • With your Webelos patrol or den, visit at least one Boy Scout troop meeting, and one Boy Scout-oriented outdoor (Webelos Woods - first year Webelos) activity.
    • Participate in a Webelos overnight campout (Webelos Woods - second year Webelos) or day hike.
    • After you have completed all five of the above requirements, and after a talk with your Webelos leader.
      1. Visit, with your parent or guardian, a meeting of a Boy Scout Troop you think you might like to join. Talk to their Scoutmaster.
      2. Then get an "Application to Become a Boy Scout", fill it out and have your parent or guardian sign it.
      3. Show the signed Application to your Webelos leader and talk about your interest in becoming a Boy Scout.

Make sure the boys have plenty of room to move around. The leader should read it in a slow monotone at first while letting the boys go through the motions. Then try it in the sing-songy rhythm a little faster. Continue, repeating it faster and faster!

Hands on your hips, hands on your knees,
Put them behind you, if you please.

Touch your shoulders, touch your nose
Touch your ears, touch your toes.

Raise your hands high in the air,
At your sides, on your hair.

Raise your hands as before,
While you clap: one, two, three, four.

Your hands upon your head you place,
On your shoulders, on your face.

Then you raise them up on high,
And make your fingers quickly fly.

Then you put them in front of you,
And quietly clap: one, two; one two!
