- Rainbow Loom style bracelet. These are bracelets that are made by connecting very small rubber bands together in creative patterns.
(Show the bracelet.)
Do any of you have a bracelet or necklace like this? Have you ever made one before? Do you know what the cool think about these bracelets is? That they are made from dozens of little rubber bands.
(Point to one of the bands in the middle.)
Do you know what would happen if I cut this band here in the middle? (Wait for a response.) That’s right, the whole thing would come all apart. This bracelet is made up of a bunch of small little bands so you would think that some bands might be less important. In reality, all of the bands are important and if just one of them breaks then the whole band comes apart.
The Body of Christ is very much like this. In 1 Corinthians 12:21-26 it talks about how each and every person plays a very important part in the Body of Christ. One part can’t say that it is any more important than another. We are all important to God.
When we are all working together, like this bracelet, then we are in unity. That means that we are working together to do God’s will! God doesn’t want us always fighting with each other. He wants us to work together, because when we are in unity we can accomplish so much more than we can alone.

- Several varieties of apples (different colors and sizes)
(Hold up one of the apples.)
Does anyone know what kind of fruit this is? (Wait for a response.) That’s right this is an apple. What color is it? (Wait for response.)
(Show a different apple.)
Do you know what type of fruit this is? (Allow for a response.) Yes, it is also an apple.
(Continue showing all the apples.)
Tell me what is different about these pieces of fruit? (Wait for a response.) They are different colors. Some are different shapes. Some are big. Some are little. I have several varieties here.
(Can you tell me what is the same about this fruit that I have? (Wait for a response.) They are all apples! They all have a stem. They all have a peel. They all have seeds inside. And they all taste delicious!
This reminds me about how God created people equally. We may look different on the outside. Some of us may be African, Hispanic, white, Eskimo, Indian, or a variety of other nationalities. Some of us may be thin, or some of us may be chubby. Some of us are boys while others are girls.
The Scriptures tell us in Galatians 3:28 that we are all one in Christ. This means that we are equal. So if we are all one in Christ we should treat each others the same way we want to be treated regardless of how they look.
We should not look down on someone because they are not the same as us. If we are going to be a Church that reaches others we will need to work together.

- Mr. Potato Head Toy
Have you guys ever played with a Mr. or Mrs. Potato head. (Show the toy).
Let’s see how silly we can make him look (start putting the parts of Mr. potato Head in the wrong place). How does he look now? (Allow for laughter and let the kids make suggestions as to how to make him look goofy).
Well,that was a lot of fun, but I don’t think that a real body would work very well if it was put together this way. Did you know the Bible calls us Christians “The Body of Christ”? That means that all of us are supposed to work together to do the work of Jesus.
The Bible tells us in Romans 12:4-5 that there are many different parts of the body of Christ and each of us has an important job to do. Some of you may become pastors one day, others of you may pray for people and they will be healed. Some of you are great encourages while others of you may be prophets. God has also given each of you talents such as music, sports, art, etc. All of these gifts and talents can help you bring others to Christ.
Now let’s look at Mr. Potato Head again. Is there any part he has that is not important or doesn’t help him in some way? No! He needs his ears to hear, his mouth to eat and talk. He even needs his hat to protect his face from getting sunburned and rained on.
It’s he same way with us, the Body of Christ. We might not all be pastors or we might not all have beautiful singing voices, but we all belong to Christ’s body and we each have important work to do.
