slips of paper and pencil for each scout
Have an accomplice in on the trick.
Have everyone (including your accomplice) carefully write their favorite food and color on the paper. Fold the paper and put it in a bag.
(Your accomplice puts his hand in the bag, but has already hidden his paper in his pocket and does not drop in his paper!)
After all papers are in the bag, shake it up, and draw one out.

Put your hand with the paper in it up to your forehead and concentrate. After a few seconds tell the group that it says "Clam Chowder" and "Purple". Open the paper to verify it, nod, and ask who wrote that? Your accomplice says, "That was me!".
(Actually, you are reading the paper to see what the next words are that you will 'read'.)
Reach in and pull out another paper and put it to your forehead. Announce that it says whatever was written on the previous paper and ask whose it is.
Continue to do this for all the papers, being as dramatic as you can.
When there are no papers left, there will still be one scout that was not guessed. Ask if there are any scouts left that you haven't guessed. When he says 'Yes', say that you will try to guess his even though his paper has disappeared. Of course, you guess it perfectly!
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
