Characters: Six Cub Scouts in uniform; one den leader in uniform.
Setting: Den meeting place, decorated as desired. Den leader sits at a table. As
skit opens, all “Cub Scouts arrive together and sit down.
Den Leader: Today, let’s take turns and tell how we can help to conserve energy
in our homes.
Cub Scout 1: I know a good way. My mom doesn’t use her clothes dryer as
much as she used to. She uses a new solar energy device called a clothesline
and hangs her laundry outside to dry in the sunshine.
Cub Scout 2: My dad said that if we filled a plastic bottle with water and put it in
the tank in the bathroom, it would cut down on the amount of water used for
Cub Scout 3: Did you know that if you take showers you use a lot less water than
if you take baths? Mom even uses a timer, and we have learned to take 3-
minute showers at our house.
Cub Scout 4: We keep the drapes closed on summer days and keep them open
for light and warmth in the winter.
Cub Scout 5: We keep the damper in our fireplace closed whenever we aren’t
using it. If it’s left open in the winter, the warm air in the house escapes up the
chimney and that’s a waste.
Den Leader: (to last Cub Scout): Johnny, do you have anything to add about
saving energy? (He turns to see that he is fast asleep.) I guess Johnny is the
best energy saver of us all. (Curtain)
