The Greatest Show on EarthIndian Nations Council
As you work and develop your skills, you will become stronger. (Show this by adding more sticks - it becomes harder to break.)
Now, I am proud to present to you, your parents and they in turn may present to your (wolf, bear etc) badge.
(This award can be presented pinned to a small weightlifting bar made from a cardboard roll stuck into two round styrofoam balls painted black.)
(Have the boys on stage wearing cardboard feet which have scratches, cuts, band-aids, etc. on them.)
Narrator:Our Shape Up meeting has come to an end.
We now have a message to leave with you, dear friend.
Our many achievements in life make feet tired and weary.
But if there was nothing to do, our life would be dreary.
So forget the knocks and scratches, blisters and aches.
Do your best at all times, That's what success takes!
(As the poem is finished, boys lay down on stage with their cardboard feet facing the audience...each of the feet has a letter on it spelling out G-O-O-D-N-I-G-H-T)
