1. Friendly faces
Talk with your children about Jesus’ friends, his disciples and how much Jesus must have meant to them. Tell the children some of the disciples’ names – are these names familiar to them? What are their own friends called? Discuss friendship and what makes a special friend. Use paper plates to collage a friendly face expression. Invite children to think about the different features and how mouths, eyebrows and eyes can reflect happiness.
