Host a teddy bear tea party, play Sardines and learn not to judge a muffin by its sprinkles! Choose from these ideas, and many others, to help kids mimic God's inclusive love for everyone.
Positive anticipated outcomes for your children include:
- greater acceptance of another's appearance, culture and preferences
- more inclusive of others in play and conversation
- a significant decrease in teasing or making fun of others.
In addition, this lesson helps address racism, bullying, a mean or critical attitude, and picking on others.
