One Step At A Time
York Adams Area Council

Characters:  Senior Scout (like a Den Chief, Denner, etc.)  Junior “Cub” Scouts.

Setting:  All Scouts are on stage as the skit starts.

Cub 1: When I grow up I’m going to be the world’s greatest broad jumper and jump like this… (Jumps about one 1 foot and falls down.)

Senior Scout:  Well, you’ll have to remember to take it one step at a time, one step at a time.

Cub 2: Well, I am going to be a high jumper and win a gold medal like this… (Jumps and falls flat.)

Senior Scout:  Well just remember that you’ll have to remember to take it one step at a time, one step at a time.

Cub 3:  Well I am doing to be a world famous baseball player and hit homeruns like this… (Swings and falls.)

Senior Scout:  Fine, fine, but remember to take it one step at a time, one step at a time.

Cub 4: I am going to be the world’s best slam-dunker (dribbles imaginary ball across stage and slam-dunks it, falling.

Senior Scout:  Sure, sure, but remember to take it one step at a time, one step at a time.

Cub 1: Say, what are you going to be when you grow up?

Senior Scout:  Why I am going to be the greatest marathon runner that ever lived!  (Turns to walk away and trips on shoelace.)

All Cubs: One step at a time!  One step at a time!

 (All exercise - except Joe)

Boy #4 One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

Joe Hey everybody. I'm eating a carrot. I'll be healthier than you.

Boy #2 Carrots are good for you. They have lots of Vitamin A which is good for your eyes.

Joe When I'm through with this carrot, I'm going to eat an orange.

Boy #1 Oranges have Vitamin C which is important to keep us from getting many diseases.

Boy #4 One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

Joe Don't waste your time. Just eat right and you will be healthy.

Boy #3 You need good food, exercise and sleep to be healthy, Joe.

Boy # 1 We feel really good after this work out. Let's go to the movies.

ALL EXCEPT JOE Yes, let's go!

Boy #3 Are you going with us, Joe?

Joe I don't think so. I've eaten a bowl of cereal, a boiled egg, a ham sandwich, two apples, a celery stick, a green salad, a banana, some meatloaf, a carrot, and an orange. (Groan) I feel kind of funny; I'm probably too healthy!!
