PREPARATION: Two dens and a Den Chief can participate together on this skit. A poster board for each letter of the words "Holiday Magic" is needed. After the letters are written, let the boys decorate their posters as desired.
Boys enter the stage carrying letter poster that spells "Holiday Magic". All the letters are scrambled as the boys come on stage. The boys look at one another and at the posters and look puzzled.
Den Chief enters, looks at boys, scratches his head and really looks the boys over again. He begins to rearrange the letters by moving all the boys around. He makes several errors. All the time, the boys are looking around, trying to figure out the message. The Den Chief finally gives up. He just cannot figure it out. The boys huddle together and discuss the situation. Finally, one boy goes over, taps the Den Chief on his shoulder, and whispers in his ear. The Den Chief then proceeds to properly arrange the letters to spell "Holiday Magic".
When all the letters are finally in place, the dens lead the audience in singing a lively holiday song.
