The Gift Of Goodwill
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.

Den Chief: Hey guys, let me see what each one of you is wrapping.

1st Cub: Gloves for my Dad.

2nd 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.

Den Chief: Hey, you guys are really giving Goodwill. (laughs)

All Cubs: We hope so. Aren’t we supposed to do that year round?

Den Chief: 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 out!
