Choose Your Friends Wisely

We had an FHE lesson on choosing good friends. I gave each of the kids a bowl of pasta that represented their friends. The pasta was plain when I gave it to them. Then we talked about bad choices some people make, like saying a bad word or dressing immodestly, and how those choices can effect us even if we don't notice it. So as we listed bad choices, I put in a few drops of food coloring and then had the kids stir their pasta. Soon all the pasta was colored. I think it was a good object lesson and really showed the effect that one bad thing can have on a group of people. The kids had a great time doing it, and I hope they learned something in the process!
