Kick-off craft

The craft suggested here will help remind your children to practice being faithful to others and is based on Proverbs 3:3-4: “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

Friendship necklaces

  • Purchase letter beads and make a necklace that says faithfulness or love. You can also buy beads depicting fruit to emphasize that love and faithfulness are both Fruits of the Spirit.

    Have each child refer to their necklace as their “friendship necklace,” so it serves as a reminder to be a faithful friend.

If a child does not wear necklaces, he/she can make the necklace for a faithful friend, grandparent or one of his/her stuffed animals (who is a faithful friend to him/her). Alternatively, they may wish to make a zipper pull for a backpack.

Other ideas

Use this activity as a “faithfulness” play date and invite a friend over to make the necklaces.
