A Gift of
Santa Clara County Council
Personnel: Den Chief &
group of 8 Cub Scouts are gathered around. Each boy is wrapping a gift. Den
Chief: Hey, guys, let me see what each of you is wrapping.
1: Gloves for my dad.
2: An owl plaque for my mom.
3: Oreo cookies for my little brother…so he’ll quit eating mine!
4: A doll for my sister.
5: Wind chimes for my mom.
6: Ink pens for my brother; he really likes to write.
7: A lamp for my mom.
8: A lacy handkerchief for my grandmother. She likes to wave
Den Chief: Hey, you guys are really giving
goodwill. (He laughs.)
4: We hope so.
6: Aren’t we supposed to do that all year?
Chief: Yes, but let me show you something unusual. (He takes a large piece
of poster board and a marking pen. He calls on each boy in order to name again
the gift he is wrapping, and writes the first letter of each on the board (such
as ‘G’ for gloves). The result spells out ‘Goodwill,” which he holds up for the
audience to see.)
1: Hey, that’s right! We’re giving goodwill separately and
together! (Looks at Den Chief) Figure that one out!
