Here’s a Yo-yos and Helping Out script excerpt:
Leader: (to the children) Are you good helpers? What kinds of things do you help with? (introduce yo-yo trickster) (NAME) is going to help out by doing some yo-yo tricks that will help to remind us of a few ways that we can all help out.
(Yo-yo trickster demonstrates Rock the Baby as leader speaks)
This one is called Rock the baby. It’s for kids who like hanging out with other kids. You can help take care of the baby, you can read to your little brother or you can invite other kids to play games in the park.
(Yo-yo trickster demonstrates Mach 5 as leader speaks)
If you are fast, this is the Mach 5. Sometimes us big people are looking for someone who is really fast at typing or running to get something from the car for us. If you are fast, you can be a big help.
(Yo-yo trickster demonstrates Around the World as leader speaks)
This one is Around the World. There are people around the world who need our help. A little thing you can do for people who live far away is to say a prayer for them.
(full prayer and song are approximately 5 minutes long)
