Idea to use when saying promise... to get all kids to put up their right hand with the appropriate sign.
Stand in a circle. Have each kid make a fist with his/her left hand with the thumb sticking out (like a hitch hiker). Put your fist hands into the circle and grab onto the thumb of the person on your left (so it's in your fist). This will make a tight circle of fists. Now, the only hand available to make the sign for the scout promise is your right hand. And you can use some sort of cheer or break at the end like they do sometimes before sports when you want to break the fist circle.
I hope that makes sense... it was a really cool idea that somebody showed us at the first roundtable of the year. (Unfortunately, it was about the only thing that was worthwhile about the first roundtable).
