PURPOSES OF SKITS THE MAIN PURPOSE FOR THE BOYS AND THE AUDIENCE IS TO HAVE FUN!!! It’s always fun to ask each den to perform a skit or do a demonstration. It allows Scouts to showcase creativity while entertaining. These performances can include: pantomimes, sketches, short plays, jokes, cheers and run-ons. By practicing and performing in these informal skits, confidence and leadership skills begin to develop. Working together as a den or pack to perform a skit encourages team work and incorporates many skills. *Some Cub Scouts may want to just watch rather than take part in the skit. Ask them to handle the lights or offstage sound effects, or watch the time. Sometimes, playing a character who wears a mask or uses puppets helps lessen a boy's self- consciousness.
PURPOSES OF SONGS Singing with your den or pack promotes fellowship and togetherness. It helps create an atmosphere for meetings by choosing appropriate songs (serious, patriotic, inspirational, or theme-related) Action songs allow Scouts to move around and audience participation songs gets families and the audience involved.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SONG AND SKIT When choosing a song or skit for your den or pack remember these few things— Tigers/Wolves-songs and skits should be simple, easy, and familiar Bears/Webelos-can use props, memorize lines, and motions Also consider the size of your group. Smaller dens may consider telling jokes. If you are performing at a Pack Night or Campfire please consider the amount of time allotted for each group. Always use caution when choosing something for your group to perform. Make sure that it is not inappropriate or offensive.
