Brick Activity: Forgiveness

The Heaviness of an Unforgiving Attitude

The concept of forgiveness can be difficult for kids to understand. We must teach them that it takes leaning into God’s strength to forgive others, even when it’s hard. If we don’t forgive others, we will feel weighed down by our unforgiving attitude — and that’s not a fun way to live!

This activity and guided conversation will help your child visually (and physically!) understand the weight of not forgiving others. Walk them through the conversation, then talk about scenarios of when they might need to forgive others, even if others don’t say they’re sorry. Explain to them that God forgives us over and over again, and He asks us to let our forgiveness flow freely to others as well.
