August Theme: Kids Against Crime
Skit, Joke, Run-on:
Directions: Someone runs into the room and yells, “Nobody move! This is a stick-up!” Then he holds a stick in the air.
Q: What do you get when you cross a criminal with a bag of candy?
A: JAIL-y Beans
Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?
Use deductive reasoning to figure out who is hiding the button!
Directions: Have everyone sit in a circle with their palms together in front of them. The Cubmaster also has his hands in front of him, but there is a large button between his palms. He goes around to each person in the circle and slides his hands between their palms, quietly giving the button to someone else. When he has gone the whole way around the circle, he says, “Button, button, who’s got the button?” The people in circle take turns trying to guess who it could be.
Variation: A second similar version has the child who is “it” stand in the center of the circle. The button is then passed behind the backs of the children in the circle, stopping at random. “It” tries to guess where the button is, and once the button is found, takes his or her place in the circle. Whoever had the button then becomes the new “it” and play begins again.

Dishonesty hurts you and usually hurts others as well. When you lie, steal, shoplift, or cheat, you damage your spirit and become less able to do good things.
Don’t rationalize that wrong is right, even though many people around you may think there is no harm in being dishonest. Being honest requires courage and commitment to do what you know is right. –For the Strength of Youth.
