Summer camp, Vacation Bible School, Fundraisers are all coming up for those of you in the ministry. So I thought this would be a great time to share some skit ideas with you. These are the skits that we used last year for our Family Bible School. 

As part of our schedule for FBS, we always have at least one skit every night during our group time. Normally, Jeremy, the teens and I do the skits, but this year we handed them over to our creative friend, Dana. She worked hard and came up with some fun skits. So, these are her ideas.

The first night she did a skit where they sang "Take Me Out To the Ball Game" different ways. They sang it the normal way, then one of the actors sang it like Elvis and then it was sung opera-style. At the end they turned off all the lights and did the last version as glow figures. The video below gives you an idea of what the glow figures were like.

The 2nd night Dana asked my husband and I to join her and her husband to do the Small People Skit. Our skit was about 2 pastors' wives getting ready to play baseball. Our husbands were the arms so they fed us, as well as applied makeup, gave us water and helped us exercising. It was super funny. We also had some fun with the Chariots of Fire song as well as the Kung Fu Panda Song. Below is a video of some people dancing in a small people skit. It should give you an idea.

On the 3rd night, the skit was a baseball-spitting contest. They made it fun by making it look (through sound effects) like the person was spitting across the room, off the roof, around the world, between his legs and so on. After he would spit, the sound guys made a sound like spit hitting a bucket. It turned out to be very funny.

The last night, the skit used two baseball broadcasters who did a play on words with Bible characters. This skit was more for adults and those who know their Bible.

All in all, you can do about anything, you just need a big personality and lots of craziness to really get the kids going. 

We also played the Who's On First Skit. Everything went with the baseball theme. It turned out great. - Rejoicing in the Present
