You’ll need a box with a removable lid, a small mirror, paper, and
markers. Before kids arrive, place the mirror in the bottom of the
box and put the lid on.

Give kids paper and markers, and have them sit apart from each
other. Ask kids to pass the box around in silence, taking off the
lid and looking inside before passing it on to the next person.
After kids look inside the box, ask them to draw what they
saw.

When everyone has drawn a self-portrait, have kids talk about how
recognizable their drawings are. Ask: What could someone see
about you from your drawing of yourself? What things couldn’t
others see about you from your drawing that you’d like them to
know?
Read aloud 1 John 3:1-2. Ask: What does this verse tell
us about the way we look at ourselves and others?

Close in prayer, thanking God for the unique gift of each
child.
