Put the names of all the children in a bowl. Each child draws a name and is to make a “medal” to honor the child whose name he or she draws. This medal should identify some inner quality the child possesses, not for external appearance or physical talent.
You may want to put on the board a sample list of possible “inner qualities,” such as: truthful, kind, humorous, generous, patient, helpful, sensitive, forgiving, loyal, honest, courageous, gentle, and thoughtful.
Invite the children to think of some good “inner qualities” about themselves. Then have them write or draw symbols of these qualities on a sheet of paper. Individually encourage those who may be having difficulty.
