WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
As many small mirrors as half the number of your class, white shoe
polish, paper towels, and glass cleaner.
As many blindfolds as half the number of your class and several
objects to try to guess blindfolded.
A two-liter bottle, water, food coloring, oil, and dish soap.

Divide your class into pairs. Give one child in each pair a small
mirror that has been covered with white shoe polish. Give the
other child a paper towel. Ask the students if they can see what’s

room and spray a bit of glass cleaner on each mirror and watch
what happens. The children holding the paper towel should try to
wipe the mirrors clean.
Ask who cleaned the mirrors. Ask the students who had the paper

see a need and we have the power to meet it, the natural
inclination is to try to do so. Sharing our faith should be like that.

salvation for people. Paul will tell them about the one true God,
the “unknown” God. Believers of the truth should share it
with those who are deceived.
