What Will I Be

What Will I Be

This is a variation of charades.  Play by den family teams, with all members of the family taking part.  Give each den family five minutes to decide on a career they will dramatize and practice doing it.  Let the Cub Scouts and other children do most of the acting.

Example:  Electrician.  First boy acts out unscrewing in a table lamp socket.  Second boy strips insulation off a wire and attaches to screw pole of the socket.  Third boy flips the wall switch.  Fourth boy pantomimes joy when bulb lights up.

When the den family has completed its pantomimes, other dens try to guess the occupation.  First one to guess scores a point for the den.
