More Crafts

 Friends learning to make friendship bracelets.  This was a great way for us to talk about the qualities of a good friend. Some of the bible verses we discussed included:

Proverbs 18:24
"Some friends may ruin you,
    but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother."

1 Corinthians 15:33
" Do not be fooled: “Bad friends will ruin good habits.”"

John 15:13
"The greatest love a person can show is to die for his friends." 

 Designing their earrings

These hands-on craft activities provided opportunities for kids in the village of Peredo to express creativity. There are not art programs in the schools and most of them are too poor to buy the resources themselves. This also helps them with fine motor skills. 

Then they have a project to take home to remind them of the discussions we had in the program that day. 

Real friendship is so important to us all! Especially the friendship we can find in a relationship with our Savior!
