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.

Children's Ministry Local Training

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.

Ask:

  • Tell about a friend you have who’s very different from you.
  • What’s the best part about loving that friend?
