What consequences?

Here is the story:

My almost 6 year old son went to a bday party yesterday at a friend's house. He was playing in the friend's room while the others were in the other room. Today my son shows me his "new" ds game. I asks him where he got it. He first says, Nana. Well Nana is getting him one for his bday so I start to think he got it from her. I called her but no answer. Then he told me he found it on the ground, which I called bs on. He finally admitted that he took it from his friends room! Im so pissed! !! This week was going to be vacation bible school but I'm thinking he's going to miss that, as well as any other fun activities for the week, no ds or phone games and taking the game back to his friend and apologizing. Does that all sound good? Enough? Too much? Also I know he knew he did something wrong, he's very smart AND he lied about it so there is no question, he took it bc he wanted it.

I'd bust his ass and embarrass him making him take it back and explain to him and his parents what he did and why.

I'm not sure. I have a 6 year old. I would make my daughter return it in person and apologize. I suppose if there was something special like you have coming up she would not be going. I wouldn't do more than that though. It's a first offense.

I think thats all good. I would actually donate/sell my son's ds too. He would definitely lose it.

Honestly though, he'd be back at that house apologizing to the parents, and his friend, he'd have no fun for the rest of the summer for LYING, and stealing, and he'd have him a nice long chore list. I'd be so seriously pissed.

Is it too much to ground him for the week? (No fun things, no ds, no phone games) We do a lot of fun things and I don't want to reward bad behavior, but I also don't want to go overboard. I do that sometimes.
