Robinson Crusoe's Diary
Greater St. Louis Area Council

This is a nonsense game that never fails to crack them up - the sillier, the better! Names of objects are written on slips of paper and dropped into a container. As "Mr. Crusoe" reads his diary, each "sailor" takes turns drawing from the container to fill in the blanks.

Copy these phrases on slips of paper:

A ship A dove A bonfire
A big tree Dandelions A wild goat
30 cannibals A loud noise Some gunpowder
My tent A strong fence A chest of gold
A goatskin A pile of straw A piece of canvas
My fieldglasses All my belongings A table and chair
A cup of goat's milk The top of the hill
