Well we had lots of fun learning about Benevolence this month. I tried to do at least one activity a week with the boys and then talk about it lots during the month as well.
We started the month by making this 'Love is' sign that hangs in our dining room window.
Once or twice a week we added these hanging circles to it. As we did each circle we read the whole verse from 1 Corinthians 13. Then we talked about what that means for our family and how we actually do it.
We also made these love paper chains. At dinner we talked about if they day had been characterised by actions of love or lack of love. If they had shown love and done well, a link was added to their chain, (they had one each). We did have to talk about it not being a competition with each other but doing better themselves each day and we did not remove links for lack of love.
We had lots of fun with these activities but I also think that the boys are actually beginning to get these things in their hearts. Somedays anyway!!
