Kids will create some strange-looking friends.
Scripture: Matthew 5:44-47
You'll Need: One rock per child, acrylic paints,
yarn, googly eyes, chenille wires, scissors, and glue. You can find
packaged rocks at craft stores.
Give everyone a clean rock. Have kids create rock friends by
painting and decorating the rocks with googly eyes, yarn for hair,
and chenille wires for arms or legs. Encourage kids to create rock
friends who look nothing like them as a reminder that God wants us
to love everyone.
Read aloud the Scripture.
- Tell about a friend you have who's very different from
- What's the best part about loving that friend?

Can-Do" which was excerpted from Children's Ministry Magazine.
