Writing your own skits

Writing your own skits

Writing your own skits is simpler than it would first appear. First, determine what the moral of the skit will be. Then follow this simple outline to write your skit.

* Boy wants something … friendship, a gold mine, a trophy, to find something
* Boy goes to get it … by canoe, plane, horseback, foot
* Obstacles stop boy … crocodile, native hunters, a locked chest
* Boy achieves goal … through an act of kindness, bravery, wisdom, magic, unexpected help of some kind

Write your skit to be 7 to 10 minutes long. The boys will shorten the skit when they present it
