This week we focused on Honesty.
This week’s verse
The girls do not have a problem with lying, but I think it is a good thing to always talk about. We have always talked about telling the truth and how important it is. So a few weeks ago when I asked Annabelle if she cut her hair, she told me that she did. I asked her why she told me the truth and she said, “because you already knew that I did.” I didn’t punish her because I was so proud of her for telling the truth right away.
I had a hard time finding bible stories that were on the girls’ level so we did some other stories and activities.
We made glittery spider webs. My mom always said this little poem to us:
What a tangled web we weave, when we choose to deceive.
This idea was a little over the girls head, but still a fun craft.
We also played the Truth and Lie Game. I would tell them something and they would have to decide if it was a truth or a lie.
We watched The Boy Who Cried Wolf and talked about how if we lie people won’t believe us when we do tell the truth.
Then we played this great game! I told the girls to close their eyes and I would give them some candy.
But really I put salt on their tongues.
Again I told them I would give them candy. Trusting little girls, I gave them more salt.
Again I said I would give them candy. Again they trusted me, although it wasn’t as strong. This time I did give them a chocolate chip. Then I did it a few more times with sweet treats so they would fully trust me.
The girls had fun with this lesson!
