The Gift Of
York Adams Area Council
Arrangement: A group of 8 Cub Scouts are gathered around, wrapping
Christmas gifts. Each boy is wrapping a gift. Den Chief enters.
Hey guys, let me see what each one of you is wrapping.
Gloves for my Dad.
Cub: An owl plaque for my mom.
3rd Cub: Oreo
cookies for my little brother… maybe he’ll quit eating mine
4th Cub: A
doll for my sister.
5th Cub: Wind
chimes for my mom.
6th Cub: Ink
pens for my big brother… maybe mine will quit disappearing.
7th Cub: A
lamp for my mom.
8th Cub: A
lacy handkerchief for my grandma. She likes to wave them goodbye.
Hey, you guys are really giving Goodwill. (laughs)
All Cubs: We
hope so. Aren’t we supposed to do that year round?
Yes, but let me show you something that’s quite unusual. (He takes a large
piece of poster board and a marking pen. He calls on each boy in order to name
the gift he is wrapping, and he writes the first letter on the board. such as
a G for gloves, etc. The result spells out Goodwill, which he holds up for the
audience to see.)
1st Cub: Hey,
that’s all right! We’re giving Goodwill separately together!
(Looks at Den Chief.) Figure that one
