Skittles Candy

Skittles Skit

Summer camp season always means lots of campfire programs. And no campfire program is complete without lots of skits.

This skit, like many of the Boy Scout skits I have seen, is full of boy humor. That is why they like it so much.

This skit lends itself to a den or patrol skit because you can adjust it to fit the number of scouts involved. If you only have a few scouts, then some of them can walk on multiple times. I’m sure your Scouts will have no problem coming up with other things they could do with Skittles.

Skittles Skit


  • Scout 1
  • Scouts A, B, C, etc
  • Scout 2


Scout 1 is standing around on stage. Scout 2 walks on.
Scout 1: What have you been doing all day?
Scout A: I threw Skittles in a lake.
Scout 1: Fun!
Scout A walks off.

Scout B walks on.
Scout 1: Where have you been?
Scout B: I fed Skittles to a bear
Scout 1: Wow!
Scout B walks off.

Scout C walks on.
Scout 1: Where have you been?
Scout C: I threw Skittles in the fire
Scout 1: Hot!
Scout C walks off.

Scout D walks on.
Scout 1: Where have you been?
Scout D: I stepped on Skittles
Scout 1: Really!
Scout D walks off.

Scout E walks on.
Scout 1: Where have you been?
Scout E: I hit Skittles with a hammer
Scout 1: Great!
Scout E walks off.


Scout 2 walks on. His hair and clothes are a mess
Scout 1: Hey Scout! I don’t know you. What’s your name?
Scout 2: I’m Skittles!

    Funny! The only thing is that in the first line it says “Scout 2 walks on”. It should say “Scout A”. I think we’ll be using this one this year.

    This seems like it promotes bullying.

      It does not promote bullying because it’s a misunderstanding. The kids actually used skittles the candy and unknowingly there is a scout named skittles coincidentally.

        I hate to say it, but I agree that this promotes bullying. The entire point is that the scouts weren’t talking about what they did to Skittles the candy, but to Skittles the scout. I don’t pretend that the world is always a nice place, but in scouts I think we need to constantly be aware of the message we’re putting out. This one just sends the wrong message, not what scouting is supposed to be teaching our boys.

    I don’t believe that this skit promotes bullying. My son is always asking me to throw him in the lake. Being thrown in a lake is fun. Sometimes. But, this skit has been banned from campfires that I have been invited to, so the opinion that this skit is inappropriate for scouting is a common one.
