Scout Law Game
Learning the Scout Law will be more enjoyable with a Scout Law game. This game helps Scouts learn all twelve points of the law in order.
The idea is to have each point of the Scout Law written on a separate craft stick. Mix up the craft sticks and throw them on the table. Scouts then need to put them in order. It is a puzzle of sorts.
For a fun variation, make several sets and mix them together . Have teams race against each other to see who can get all twelve points of the Scout Law in the correct order first.
For a more challenging variation, throw in some words which are not part of the Scout Law – happy, grateful, punctual, organized, etc.
Scout Law Game
Make this game to help Scouts learn the Scout Law.
- 12 craft sticks per set
- Write one point of the Scout Law on each stick. (trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent)
- Mix up the sticks and throw them on a table.
- Have the Scouts put the set together in the correct order.
I like the simplicity of the Scout Law. It is brief and therefore easy for youth to memorize. But it covers a lot of ground.
A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, Reverent.

I came across this prayer in my files a little while ago. I don’t know the origin of this prayer, but it ties in with the Scout Law.
