We Don’t Have a Skit Skit
This skit is great because it can be used with any number of Scouts. It is also a good skit to do with younger Scouts because they don’t have to remember many lines.
Because the joke of this skit is that you forgot to prepare a skit, it works best at an event or campfire where each den or patrol was supposed to prepare a skit ahead of time.
We Don’t Have A Skit Skit
Players: Four or more Scouts
A Scout comes in and looks at the audience. Then he sits on the stage, crying loudly.
Then another Scout comes in. The first Scout whispers something to the second and the second one says “Oh no!” He sits down next to the first and starts bawling.
A third Scout comes in and the second Scout says “I can’t believe it” and sits down crying loudly.
The Scouts keep coming in and doing this until all but one of them is on the stage.
The last Scout comes in and says “What is wrong?”
One of the crying Scouts answers “We don’t have a skit”.
This skit works with any number of Scouts. And because there aren’t really any lines to memorize, I have seen it done successfully with all levels – even very young Scouts..
The Skittles Skit, like many of the skits I have seen, is full of kid humor and outrageous behavior. That is why they like it so much.
Like many skits, it has multiple versions. It is actually based on the book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
Every campfire program should have plenty of skits. They also make a great intermission in a meeting. Sometimes they teach a lesson, sometimes they don’t, but they are always fun.
