    Craft

    Provide each child with a child’s plastic mac.
    Depending on their age, let them write their own stickers or give them prepared stickers with each of the good attributes written on.

    Let the children put the macs on and clothe themselves with the stickers.

    Talk about what they have just done and how they can do these things in their lives.
