I teach a class of 3rd & 4th graders at Children’s Church. Today’s lesson was about helping others. We played a game, read bible verses, and performed skits in small groups. For the last activity, each student had to come up with a family member whom he/she would help this week. Students wrote names of family members on band-aids and wore them on their arms and legs. The band-aid served as a symbol and a reminder.
One student had the bright idea of putting on the band-aid first, then writing the name after. This student also chose to wear his band-aid on his forehead. He asked his cousin to “write the name on his head.” Not fully understanding his instructions, she began to write “Mommy” an inch above the band-aid on his forehead with a Sharpie.
