Crafts

Introduce craft: What are some things that people have done for you that were nice? What can we make to help remind us of the many kindnesses you have received from others? Let’s find out!

Gratitude Jar-God's gifts sometimes come through other people. (Crafts For Christian Values by Kathy Ross, page 26 & 27). Have the children write down on small slips of paper the kind things others have done for them and put them inside the jar. If the child cannot write, they can color pictures of kind things people have done for them and put them into the jar.

honesters.blogspot.com- Gratitude Jar- Or make a Gratitude Jar like this one: Every time the children say something positive or showed gratitude they get to put in a bean (or a Spanish peanut) into the jar.


Introduce craft: Who should we be kind to? Everyone. Let’s make a craft to remind us to “Love Others”. (Love Bug Lady Bug)

familycorner.com- Paper Plate Lady Bugs- Paint the paper plates or use red and white paper plates to make this craft. On the back of the lady bug where the wings open up write “Love Others”.

dltk-kids.com- Lady Bug Birthday Invitation- Or make the lady bug with poster board or card stock. On the back of the lady bug where the wings open up write “Love Others”.



Games

Introduce games- Sometimes we expect to earn a reward by doing a kind action, and we forget that the biggest reward may lie in having the opportunity to be a kind person. In other words, the reward often comes before the act, instead of afterwards.

The Catholic Toolbox- Random Acts of Kindness File Folder Game

The Catholic Toolbox- What Would Jesus Do? File Folder Game


Introduce game- How are we to treat others? Well, here are some question and let’s see how well you can.

“Win or Lose by How You Choose!” by Judge Judy Sheindlin
Directions- Divide the class into teams and do questions out of “Win or Lose by How You Choose!”

sundayschoolresources.com- What Do I Do? (Scroll down to Bible Story Activities.) The teacher can read the situations and ask the children what they can do to show the special love Jesus says we should have.
