Do you know some other Counting-Out games or rhymes?
But what if you have to choose between doing something bad like playing a trick on the teacher, or lying to someone, or telling the truth? What can you do to decide then? - Well, here's a special Kids' Korner page that talks some more about that, and shows what rules to use to decide the far more important things in life. Choosing Games - Tools for Deciding? (a PDF file) The page also has a colouring picture on it.
