Preteens can make these napkin rings to use at their
families' Easter dinner.
You'll need chenille wires and pony beads.
Have kids bend chenille wires in half to find the center, and
then twist the center point to form the tip of the fish's face.
Have kids place 11 pony beads on the two halves of chenille wire
that extend from the twist. Secure the beads on both halves by
twisting the wire ends together to form the fish's body. Place
three more beads on the remainder of each extension, bend the wire
behind the beads to secure it, and then trim the remaining
As kids create their napkin holders, discuss how they
recognize that someone else is a Christian, such as how the person
treats others. Tell kids a fish symbolized a follower of Jesus in
the early church, and ask preteens what symbolizes Jesus' followers
