SKITS

 

The Family Tree
Circle 10 Council

 

Preparation: Den Leader and 5 Cub Scouts with cardboard cutouts of trees for the boys. Begin with boys in a line, holding trees.


DL: Each one of us is one of natureís miracles Ė a natural resource. Together we make up families, whether large or small. This poem is one personís thoughts about ďThe Family TreeĒ.


#1: Thereís one thing in Godís nature world that means a lot to me. It symbolizes much of life; it is a lovely tree.


#2: With roots so deep in Godís rich earth itís not disturbed by weather; like families with faith in God who live in peace together.


#3: Itís trunk, the body strong and firm, like parents everywhere; to guide, control, direct, sustain the offspring, which they bear.


#4: The branches, which like children spread, in every known direction, until the fruitage of their growth has reached it full perfection.


#5: And so a tree appears to me the gem of Godís creation as it portrays our families, which constitute a nation.

Cast: Farmer and two visitors.


Setting: The farmer is escorting two visitors around his farm, pointing out all the imaginary building and sheds.(A person unseen to the audience provides a "whoosh! sound effect.It must be loud enough to be heard for this skit to be effective).All three are facing the audience.


Whoosh!(All three heads spin to the left)


Whoosh!
(All three heads spin back the other way)


Whoosh!(They all look back to the left again)

 

Visitor 1: What was that? Looked like a turkey, I think.


Farmer: 'Twas!'Twas a turkey.


Visitor 2: Yeah!A turkey with three legs, if I can believe my eyes.


Farmer: Yup! WE like drumsticks so well that we've been working to invent a whole new breed of turkeys with three legs.


Visitor 1: Really?How do they taste?

Farmer: Can't rightly say.Ain't never been able to catch one of the critters yet.

 

WHOOSH!WHOOSH!WHOOSH!All three walk off stage turning their heads from left to right with each Whoosh!
