Embers: Bucket Filler

Lesson: Kindness and bullying.
Need: The book 'Have you filled a bucket today?', paper, pens/markers/crayons.
Prep: Cut a few sheets of paper into about 3 inch strips.
Directions: Read the book to the campers. Discuss ways to fill each others buckets and to NOT be a bucket dipper. Create a 'bucket filling' system with buckets/bags/envelopes/paper cups made from a sheet of paper and put in a central location. Encourage campers to write compliments on slips of paper to each other through the session, and place in buckets. Make sure they write something to everyone and not just their favorite people. Talk about what happens if our bucket is empty (sometimes this happens, but we just keep filling others buckets), and this doesn't mean that our inner buckets aren't full.
Rules: Cannot look in other buckets. Empty buckets once a day.
