The Campfire Candy Store
As promised, I’ll share one of the funniest moments from last weekend’s Cub Scout Camp out. After the cookout portion, the maze, flag football and pumpkin decorating, we gathered around the campfire for some songs and skits.
Of course, we taught the kids the “Skeeters and the Bedbugs”, “Grey squirrel, Grey squirrel,’ ‘Have You Ever Gone Fishin’ and the when your up your up, when your down, your down song. In between each den performed a skit or song they came up with on their own. Our den did the Girl Scout Cookie Military song. Then it was time for a skit that I had schemed up with a couple other moms. We called two of the husbands up to the front. Using a stick , I explained that the stick represented a Candy Store counter and behind the counter our Pack leader “Auntie Em” stood. The two dads/husbands held the stick from each end to hold up our ‘counter’. Then four of the moms each took a turn skipping up to the counter like a little kid asking Miss Auntie Em if she had a certain kind of candy (anything but suckers), each time she’d say, “Nope, sorry I do not.” Then it was my turn. I ran up and asked if she had any lemon drops. She again replied by saying she didn’t. So then I asked, “Well, Auntie Em, what do you have?”
She replied with “Two suckers on a stick!”
This was a skit which I learned while going through the BALOO training for camping. A riot! I highly recommend doing it to your own husband!!
I’ve got a couple of different topics up my sleeve for the next week…stay tuned!! One includes our newest passion…cooking in a dutch oven on top of my hubby’s grandparents antique, wood burning stove. Some great fall pictures in another and then I’d like to share a really neat homework activity that our school’s PE teacher has implemented. So don’t change this station! Unless of course you’d like to read some of my favorite blogs. :0) Happy Weekend!
