Whacha Gonna Do?

Whacha Gonna Do?

Theme: Christianity is a choice that every individual makes. (Joshua 1:9)

Length: 3-4 minutes

5 Clowns

There is no particular setting for this skit. Along with clown costumes, you will need two road signs: NARROW and WIDE. Near the NARROW sign you should tape a crosswalk on the floor. You’ll also need a pocket size cross that’s big enough to be visible to the audience.

When the clowns come to a fork in the road on a journey towards eternal bliss, they must determine which way to go. Exaggerated pointing accompanies the question: Is it this way or that way? And the final answer is of course—the one with the cross walk.

Slobber, Goober, and Rufus ENTER, walking in single file. Slobber stops abruptly, turns, and signals for the others to stop.

Slobber: Whoa!

Goober halts, but Rufus isn’t paying attention. He crashes into Goober who crashes into Slobber and they all crash to the floor.

Slobber: (Complains as he gets up) I said, Whoa.

Rufus:(scratches head puzzled) Oh.

Goober: Where are we going, anyway?

Slobber: I told you, we’re on a journey toward eternal bliss. But we’ve got a problem. There’s a fork in the road.

Goober and Rufus both examine the ground carefully around the signs.

Rufus: I don’t see a fork. (He brightens and pulls a spoon out of his pocket) But I do have a spoon.

Slobber: Not that kind of fork. The kind of fork where the road splits and goes in two different directions. Now we have to make a decision. Do we go this way (exaggerated point in each direction) or do we go that way?

The Big Race

The Big Race

Theme: The Christian life is a race of endurance in front of spectators. (Heb. 12:1)
Characters: Rabbit, Speedy, Turtle, Race Starter & a couple of spectators
Length: 2.5 – 3 minutes

A sign that says, Race for the Lord, a bottle of Turtle wax, a boom box and Chariots of Fire theme song

This Kids Church skit was made for kids to perform to kids. The characters compete in a race for the Lord.

(A RABBIT hops in. He has whiskers and bunny ears)

Rabbit: (Reads the sign with a tone of contempt) Race for the Lord. I’m gonna smoke everyone. Run circles around them. Make them eat my dust. But first, I gotta get loose.

(As Rabbit stretches out, SPEEDY sprints in. He has whiskers, mouse ears and a long tail.)

Speedy: Arriba! Arriba! Undelay! Undelay! Hey, Senior, is this where the race for the Lord starts?

Rabbit: Yeah, who are you?

Speedy: Speedy Gonzales. The fastest mouse in all of Mexico. And I see another spiritual victory in my future.

Rabbit: I don’t think so. I’m more spiritual than you are. Look, I even brought my Bible. Did you bring YOUR Bible? Huh?

Speedy: No, I’ve got it all memorized.

Rabbit: Well, your shoe’s untied. (Speedy points and Rabbit looks) Knot! And that’s
K. N. O. T. Get it? Your shoelace is in a knot. Ha, ha, ha!

(A TURTLE enters. He wears a shell and speaks and moves very slowly)

Turtle: Excuse me. Is this where the race for the Lord starts?

(Speedy starts running around the turtle in circles)

Speedy: Si, Senior. Arriba! Arriba! Undelay! Undelay!

Rabbit: Don’t tell me you’re going to race. Not only do you not have a Bible, you don’t have a prayer. A prayer, get it? Ha, Ha, Ha.

Stinkin Thinkin

Theme: Christians should strive to maintain a positive thought life. (Phil.4:8)

Length: 3-4 minutes

6 Clowns

There is no particular setting for this skit except for a single chair. You will need clown costumes, a donut, an inner tube, a balloon and a whoopee cushion.

This Kid’s Church skit was performed by children made up as clowns and works best for that venue. Characters discuss various ideas on how to maintain a positive thought life. It ends with a whoopee cushion explosion from which the skit gets its name.


(Goober ENTERS and paces around. He’s concentrating very hard.)

Goober: Think, think, think. Think, think, think.

(Slobber ENTERS. He watches Goober, puzzled at first, then begins to follow him with growing curiosity.)

Slobber: What are you doing?

Goober: (pauses to answer) I’m thinking.

(Goober resumes pacing and talking to himself. Slobber continues to follow and watch.)

Goober: Think, think, think. Think, think, think.

Slobber: What kind of thinking?

Goober: Good thoughts thinking. That’s what kind of thinking. (He paces again.) Think, think, think. Think, think, think. (Pauses with a discovery) Thinking leads to answers. Answers lead to knowledge. And knowledge leads to…to…

Slobber: To what?

Goober: (Shrugs) The thought hasn’t entered my mind.
