Skit #7 of Jerry & Jill Series
Jerry & Jill Go Camping Part I
Puppets: Jerry, Jill, Mother & Father
Mother: Jill, will you please carry these hotdogs down to your father?
Jill: Sure, Mom……….. How long do you think it will be before we eat?
Mother: It should not be too much longer. After you take the hotdogs down to your father, come back and help me mix up this pasta salad. OK?
Jill: Sure thing! ------ Mmmmm! Pasta salad. Are you going to put sesame seeds in it this time?
Mother: I thought I would leave them out since you and your father do not care for them.
Jill: Good! I’ll be right back. See you, Mom.
(Jill and Mother exits) (Jill returns with Father)
Father: Hello, Jill, how are you this morning?
Jill: I feel little tired, I guess. I was too excited thinking about the camping trip. I glad you and Mom are going with us this year. The kids seem to like you. I know they like Mom’s chocolate chip cookies.
Father: You Mother does make very good cookies. How about handing me those hotdogs.
Jill: I’ll help you roast them if you like.
Father: You better head back up the hill and help your Mother with the remainder of the meal. I am getting hungry already just thinking of all the good food she fixes.
Jill: She wanted my help. I’ll be back shortly.
(Jill and Father exit) (Mother and Jill return)
Mother: You came just in time. Put the ice in the glasses. I have some raspberry ice tea in the fridge. I’ll finish the pasta salad while you take care of the drinks for me. It will not take too long for the hotdogs to cook over the fire.
Jill: Well the drinks are finished. I will get Jerry and see if Father needs any help getting the hotdogs.
(Jill and Mother exit) (Jill returns with Jerry)
Jerry: It sure smells delicious. What are we having for our picnic lunch today?
Jill: Hotdogs, pasta salad, raspberry ice tea, and Mom’s favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Jerry: Sounds great! My stomach tells me I am hungry…..Hey Jill…..
Jerry: What do you think if we …..
Jill: What Jerry?
Jerry: What do you think if we take our adventure kit with us? I mean you never know….
Jill: Jerry, you know Mom and Dad will not want us going off and getting into trouble. You had better leave it at home. I want a good, safe camping trip.
Jerry: All right……….why do you have to be such a spoil sport?
Jill: I am going to run down real quick and see if Dad wants any help with the hotdogs.
(Jill and Jerry exit) (Jill and Father return)
Father: Jill! Watch those coals. They are hot still.
Jill: I’ll be careful! OOOOOUUUUUUCCCCCCHHHHHHH! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! (Jill jumps around up and down)
Father: Jill! What have you done? Here let me help you. Jill come back here!
(Jill exits) OUCH! MY FEET!
Father: I should never have started this fire. Now Jill is hurt and we leave for church camp in the morning. I feel so bad.
Narrator: what will happen? How bad is Jill hurt? Will Jill get to go camping now? What about Jerry’s idea to bring along his adventure kit? Oh no! This family is sure in trouble. Come back and see what will happen next week.
