Letters From Home Skit
This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
Lines written on two sheets of paper
(both scouts enter while looking at their 'letters')
Scout #1: Gee, it's sure great to get a letter from home when you're at camp.
Scout #2: Yeah, I got a letter from my Mom today.
Scout #1: Me, too. Listen, my Mom says she's writing this letter slowly, because she knows I can't read very fast.
Scout #2: Mine says I won't know the house when I come home... They've moved!
Scout #1: Oh, my Dad has a new job with 500 men under him. He's cutting the grass at the cemetery.
Scout #2: Our neighbors started a new pig farm. Mom got wind of it this morning.
Scout #1: Oh, my goodness. My little brother came home from school crying because all the other boys had new clothes and we can't afford any for him. Mom says she got him a new hat and lets him stand in the window.
Scout #2: My Mom wasn't feeling well so she had her appendix taken out. And, she had a new dishwasher put in.
Scout #1: Hey, my sister just had a baby. Mom doesn't know if I'm an Aunt or Uncle, because she doesn't know yet if it's a boy or a girl.
Scout #2: Oh, dear, there's a P.S. It says, I was going to send you $10.00, but I had already sealed the envelope.
Scout #1: Well, it's nice to know things are normal at home.
Scout #2: Yep.
