Pass the Bead   Pass the Bead Activity   Scout Activity

small bead or marble
at least 8 scouts
Group stands in a circle facing inward, shoulder to shoulder.
One person is "IT" in the center.
Each scout in the circle holds his left hand out, palm up.
He holds his right hand out palm down, making a fist.

The chant of "To your Left; To your Right" is started as each scout moves his right hand onto his own left hand, then onto his neighbor's to his right left hand.

"IT" closes his eyes and a bead is given to someone in the circle. That scout picks it up with his right hand and deposits it into his neighbor to the right's left hand. The bead moves along from hand to hand with the beat of the chant.

"IT" opens his eyes and tries to detect who has the bead. If he points to the correct person, they switch places. If he is incorrect 3 times, he switches with whoever does have the bead at that point.

You can keep score, but it's a fun activity to just pass some time waiting.
