The Gift Of Goodwill
Posted On: 2020-11-11
Arrangement: A group of 8 Cub Scouts are gathered around Christmas gifts. Each boy is wrapping a gift, Den Chief enters.
Den Chief: Hey guys, let me see what each one of you is wrapping.
Cub 1: Gloves for my Dad.
Cub 2: An owl plaque for my Mom.
Cub 3: Oreo cookies for my little brother...maybe he will quit eating mine.
Cub 4: A doll for my sister.
Cub 5: Windchimes for my Mom.
Cub 6: Ink pens for my big brother...maybe mine will quit disappearing.
Cub 7: A lamp for my Mom.
Cub 8: A lacy handkerchief for my grandma. She likes to wave them good-bye.
Den Chief: Hey you guys are really giving Goodwill (laughs).
All Cubs: We hope so. Aren't we supposed to do that year-round?
Den Chief: Yes, but let me show you something that's quite unusual. (He takes a large piece of poster board and marking pen. He calls on each boy in order to name the gift he is wrapping, and he writes the first letter on the board...such as G for gloves. O for owl, etc. The result spells out Goodwill, which he holds up for the audience to see.)
Cub 1: Hey, that's all right! We're giving Goodwill separately together!
