Blue And Gold Skit
Setting:The narrator, the spirit of Lord Baden-Powell is a Den Chief in full uniform wearing a campaign hat. He reads the script from a lectern, while Cub Scouts in uniform come on stage one by one.
Narrator:I represent the spirit of Lord Baden-Powell. The founder of Boy Scouting. I am also the spirit of Boy Scouting past and present. Here is our future...the Cub Scouts of America.
(First boy enters in complete uniform.)
The two colors of the Cub Scout uniform have a meaning. Blue stands for truth and loyalty; gold for good cheer and happiness.
(Second boy enters carrying Wolf Book and Kipling's "Jungle Book.")
Early Cub Scout ceremonies were based on Kipling's Jungle Tales. When Cub Scouting was organized in America in 1930. Indian themes were used.
(Third boy enters with a craft project of wood.)
Cub Scouting means fun. We have lots of fun. But most boys like making things...real boy projects...things they can play with or that follow the monthly theme.
(Fourth boy enters carrying a nature collection.)
Cub Scouts like to go on hikes and collect things for their nature collection or the den museum. They like the outdoors.
(Fifth boy enters carrying a buddy burner.)
Most Cub Scouts like to go on picnics. All boys like to eat. It is even more fun when they can cook their own food.
(Sixth boy enters - the smallest Cub Scout - holding the American Flag.)
Cub Scouts are proud to be Americans. They are proud of their Flag. They are also proud of their pack flag (points to it) because it reminds them they are part of years of Scouting. They belong!
Yes, I represent the past and the present. These boys, Cub Scouts now, are the men of tomorrow. They will be the preservers of our American heritage. Please stand and join us in singing "God Bless America".
