Humility

Can you make snow? Will pride cause you to stumble? What’s it like to be famous? Try these activities to find out!

Take your pick of some fun activities that help children:

  • recognize that everyone has different strengths, and that these are gifts from God
  • acknowledge their failings and need of God’s help and forgiveness
  • apologize to others, accept advice, and receive compliments graciously.

This lesson also helps address self-centredness, self-righteousness, a know-it-all attitude and poor sportsmanship.
