   Well it all depends on whether you plan to do it indoors our outdoors.
   Here are a few ideas, but keep in mind that they're coming from a
   country where a consistent plot (a 'fil rouge') is a crucial point in
   every scouting activity.
   
   I would embed the games into a Christmas story. For example about a
   little angel who has neglected his duties, and preferred to play
   aureola frisbee and cloud soccer with the little devils instead of
   doing his daily good actions (games: play frisbee with a frisbee ring,
   and soccer by having the teams blow on a cotton wool ball over a
   table).
   
   The case came to Petrus who decided to send the little angel on a
   penitence mission in the world of darkness and the world of silence.
   Describe the kids how the angel felt desperately lost and alone in
   these worlds; How he meets a blind boy in the world of darkness, and a
   deaf boy in the world of silence; How these two kids show him that
   they can get along very well in their respective worlds despite their
   respective handicaps, by using the remaining senses -- odor, hearing
   and touch in the world of darkness / sight in the world of silence --.
   
   Make heavy use of Kim and trust games in the world of darkness, and of
   pantomime games in the world of silence. Tell how the angel is marked
   by these two encounters, and how he decides to help the people lost in
   one of these worlds. End the story by telling that Petrus, seing the
   angel at work and his quest now over, called him back to paradise.
   
   Okay, I made that story up while writing this E-mail, so there are
   still a few details to polish, but all in all, you have here largely
   enough material for a whole afternoon. By including one or two wide
   games, you could even use it as base for a cub scout weekend.
