A few years back we had a Cubmaster who really enjoyed audience participation segments. The cornier the better! This is a classic along those lines. This would also work to help demonstrate the importance of clear communication when giving instructions.
Under the Big Top
Under the Big Top is one of the Cub Scout themes for the core value of cooperation. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“At the circus all of the
workers must work together to put on a safe and exciting show. They must cooperate. Just as the circus workers work together, Cub Scouts will work together this month to create their show, “Under the Big Top.”
So let your Cub Scouts practice cooperation and creativity by putting on their own circus acts!
The idea behind the skit is that the Scouter with the banana has misunderstood the announcer. Every time the announcer says to do something with the bandana, the Scouter does it with a banana instead.
