The children will create a collage to remind them of God’s love.

Character of God, Love
Approximately 15 minutes
Write or type/print the title, “Symbols of Love,” at the top of each child’s paper. Lay a piece of paper at each child’s chair along with safety scissors, glue, and at least one magazine.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Explain to the class that a “symbol” is an object that represents something else (for example, a heart symbolizes love). Ask the children to cut out pictures that remind them of love. Emphasize that each collage should be a reminder of God’s love for us, as proven through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Cut out pictures for the children ahead of time. This will also help pyou avoid inappropriate images.
List different types of love (such as romantic, parental, spiritual, etc) and ask the children to find at least one picture for each category.
