Materials: Package of carrot seeds, big carrots with tops still on.
CUBMASTER: (Show package of carrot seeds.) Inside this package are tiny carrot seeds. They don’t look
like much because they are tiny and fragile. But if we plant them in good soil and we make sure they get
plenty of sunlight, air, and water, they will grow to be big healthy carrots like these. (Show some carrots.)
Cub Scouts are like carrots, they also need certain things to grow, like good food, rest, and exercise.
But Cub Scouts also need something more. They need to have healthy minds and spirits if they are
going to be the kind of men we all admire. In Cub Scouting, boys can develop these qualities. They
do it by following the Cub Scout Promise.
Please stand and join us in repeating the Cub Scout Promise and the Pledge of Allegiance.
