Talking with children and teenagers about popularity
Within God's family we (try to) look at people through the eyes of Jesus. In society it sometimes feels so important to be beautifull, athlecic, smart, elegant or funny. But within the church there is no popularity contest. Everybody is allowed to belong. Everybody is loved. You may come as you are.
Through the use of the Headless Cartoon silks you can demonstrate this important truth very easily.
The use of Headless Cartoon silks within children's and youth ministry:
These beautiful silks, each with different characters depicted on them, but without their heads! This way, either you or your volunteers from the audience can hold up the silks and finish the pictures with their faces! Lots of fun for kids and adults, with audience participation and many comic possibilities. Includes four beautiful, 36-inch, 100% pure silks with routine ideas.
You can the Headless Cartoon silks for:
234 - Who is important in God’s eyes?
235 - Telling the Bible story of Zacchaeus
236 - The prodigal son’s dreams
237 - No popularity contest within God’s family
238 - No need for masks in God’s family
The four Headless Cartoon silks are no magic trick, although we use within Gospel Magic. You can make them appear from a large dove pan using flash paper.
(You can watch a demonstration video of the Headless Cartoon Silks combined with the dove pan and the flash paper here.)
