What You Need
Flashlight (cell phone flashlight will work) and washcloth
What You Do
Give your child a flashlight and a washcloth. Turn the flashlight on and cover it with the washcloth. Say, “I can love like Jesus” and uncover the light. Repeat as long as desired.
Say, “We’re going to practice shining our lights bright! Let’s turn on the flashlight and cover it with the washcloth. I will count to three. When I do, uncover your light and say, ‘I can love like Jesus.’ One, two, three. I can love like Jesus! (Repeat as long as desired.)
“When we love like Jesus, we shine our light bright. We can love like Jesus when we help people and share our things with them. Jesus wants you and me to be a light and love others like Jesus loves us. Who can love like Jesus? I can love like Jesus.”
Dear God, thank You for sending Jesus to teach us how to love each other. Sometimes it’s hard, but we know Jesus is with us and will help us love like He loves. We want to be a shining light of love everywhere we go. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
