Last week we used a skit called “I’ve come to light that candle” (available from the Ready, Steady, Act Now part of Sheila Hamil’s website). Although the suggested theme of the skit is about carrying God’s light to the world, we were struck by the way the Devil put down each of the characters in turn – attacking their self worth and belief in their own value – and we decided to focus on the fact that we all have worth in the eyes of God.
For our craft we made up this mirror to emphasise that yes, that person there looking out at you is valuable and important to God.
- Mirror finish plastic plates – found these in the Just Incredible shop at NZ$5.90 for 6 (I’m sure there will be something similar available in other countries)
- A variety of stickers of your choice
- A printed verse. We used “You are fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) which tied in with the Father’s Love Letter that we did a few weeks ago.
- Cut pieces of card to size so that they cover one side of the outer edge of the mirror plate (this is why I chose the square plates and not the round ones!) We provided a selection of colours for the children to choose from.
- Print out your chosen verse and cut to size.
- Cut ribbon to a suitable length
- Glue your choice of card to the outer edges
- Glue on the printed verse
- Attach stickers to personalise.
- Tape a piece of ribbon to the back so that the “mirror” can be hung up.
And there you have it – one personalised mirror ready to emphasise that YOU have worth!
