The Crumpled Heart Lesson

Today the children were each handed a paper heart and were asked to crumple it, step on it (without ripping it), and say unkind things to it. After that they unfolded their heart, smoothed it out and tried to get it look as smooth and fresh as it was before. Of coursed everyone’s heart styed crumpled and tatty. The children were then asked to applogise to their heart and see if they could fix  it. We had a discussion about how even though they said they were sorry, the creases still didn’t come out no matter how hard they tried to fix it, and this is exactly what happens when one child is nasty to another. You might not be able to see it on the outside but all those crumples stay with them on the inside!
