Cub Scout Halloween Skits

cub scout halloween skitsHalloween is such a fun time for kids, and our pack meetings can make it even more exciting.

A couple of good Cub Scout Halloween skits are just the thing to get our boys in the spooky mood!  🙂  While I wasn’t able to find as many as I would have liked, I have compiled a couple for you.

To see the skits, simply click on the arrows!

Ugly Pumpkin Skit

The first one, the Ugly Pumpkin Skit, comes from Scoutorama.  All you need is a “Pumpkin Patch” sign and 8 to 12 Scouts.

Ugly Pumpkin Skit

You need 8 to 10 boys to be pumpkins and 2 boys to be shoppers. If you have less than 12 boys, combine some of the pumpkin lines.

Have the pumpkins sit on the floor with their arms wrapped around their knees. On one side of the group, place the “Pumpkin Patch” sign.

Pumpkin 1: Man I HATE Halloween!
Pumpkin 2: Yeah, me too.
Pumpkin 3: Why – what’s the matter with Halloween?
Pumpkin 4: You guys break the news to the new guy….
Pumpkin 5: First, they cut off your vine!
(Pumpkin 3 looks worried)
Pumpkin 6: Yeah, then they cut your head open!
(Pumpkin 3 grabs his head)
Pumpkin 7: and pull out your guts!
(Pumpkin 3 grabs his stomach)
Pumpkin 8: then they cut you up with a saw!
Pumpkin 9: or a knife!
Pumpkin 10: or a drill!
Pumpkin 11: THEN they put a candle in you to light you up!
Pumpkin 12: and leave you on the porch to rot for months!!
Pumpkin 3 (looking scared to death): NO WAY! How do we get out of it?
Pumpkin 4: QUIET EVERYONE – I know a way – just be as UGLY as possible, then they won’t pick you!
ALL Pumpkins: OK , let’s do that!

(Shoppers enter the stage)

All pumpkins: Sshhhhh – here come some people, everyone – BE UGLY!

(The two people walk around the pumpkin patch shopping for a pumpkin)

Shopper 1: Man, all of these pumpkins are TOO ugly for halloween!
Shopper 2: Yeah, these pumpkins are REALLY ugly!
Shopper 1: Even too ugly for a jack-o-lantern!
Shopper 2: Yeah, let’s go look somewhere else!

(All the pumpkins are giving each other the thumbs up and a WHEW!)

Then Shopper 1 turns around and says: WAIT! They will be perfect for PUMPKIN PIE!

All the pumpkins scream: NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Trick or Treat Drawing Story

I put together a quick video of this Trick or Treat Drawing Story that was featured in the September 2005 issue of Baloo’s Bugle. It comes from the Baltimore Area Council. You’ll find the script below the video.


Popular Halloween Costumes and Accessories 2016

Here is the script.  You’ll say the lines in black.  The actions you’ll take are in red.

Two little ghosts passed down the street.
(Draw line from top left corner of smile)
Stopped at this house for trick or treat.
(Draw first upper tooth)
Then walked on to another door.
(Add line to next tooth)
Got candy, and went for more.
(Draw second upper tooth and line to top right corner of smile)
They turned around and started back
(Draw from bottom right corner of smile to first bottom tooth)
And stopped again to fill their sack.
(Draw first bottom tooth)
They went to one last house right here.
(Draw line to second bottom tooth and draw tooth)
Then hurried on, for home was near.
(Draw line from second bottom tooth and connect with left corner of smile)
They hadn’t noticed in the sky, that witches’ hats were blowing by.
(Draw three triangles)
Or seen the moon so round and bright, that shone above to light the night.
(Draw circle around everything)
But most of all they hadn’t seen, this pumpkin face for Halloween.
A stem right here, and then he’s done! A Jack-o-lantern’s lots of fun.
(Put stem on pumpkin)

Twelve Days of Halloween

And of course, we need a Cub Scout Halloween song. Check this one out! It’s also courtesy of the Baltimore Area Council via the September 2006 Baloo’s Bugle.

    We did the ugly pumpkin skit with a mix of tigers, wolves, and bears this weekend at our district Sppokaree. It was super funny and easy to do.
