Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute
Posted On: 2020-12-08
Equipment: Flashlights, fan, American Flag, and cards or 7 small pieces of cardboard. On the first 6, the letters, N,A,T,U,R,E, and on the last, Give A Hoot, Do Not Pollute! If you have access to music, Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA”, “America the Beautiful”, or “God Bless America”.
Setting: Lights off, some boys sitting around or by the American Flag with flashlights on. The fan is on and pointing up at the flag to create motion (just like a breeze would move the flag). Also a spotlight or large flashlight. Start the song, turn on the fan and flashlights and listen to the music. When the song is over, turn on some backlights, and have Cub Scouts come out, one at a time, with each of the cards and hold up the card. Start with N and go through all until Nature is spelled. Put the spotlight on each when they come out. After all, are in front of the pack then bring out Do Not Pollute and all of the boys say in unison, "Give a Hoot Do Not Pollute!”
