To kick of the new year, we began with the "About Me" badge. At our first meeting, each child filled out a simple "About Me" booklet with information such as their birthday, family, favorite things, and a self-portrait then they shared with the group. We read Bible passages about God creating us and how valuable we are to Him. During our second meeting, we wrote acrostic poems with our names and did a craft using our handprint.
I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvelous are your works;
and that my soul knows right well.
