Giving Compliments – Idea
It’s important for children to learn how to compliment each other so that they will know how to compliment God (praise and worship).
Depending on the ages of the children in your group this can be hard to do. Boys are afraid to say something nice to girls and vice versa for fear of cooties; however it is important. If they can freely compliment each other it will become easier for them to compliment God which is the core of praise and worship.
Have the children sit in a circle. Place a chair in the center of the circle. Then one at a time have each child sit in the center chair. Have the children in the circle take turns giving compliments to the one in the center. Repeat this until all the children have had a turn.
After this time you could use the Adoration Alphabet and have the children practice giving God compliments. The more they work on this the easier it will become.
