1. Turn to the Book—Read and discuss Bible passages about beauty (see 1 Samuel 16:7; Proverbs 31:30; 1 Peter 3:3-4) and strength (see Isaiah 41:10; Ephesians 6:10-11; Philippians 4:13; 1 Timothy 4:8).
2. Branch Out—Encourage children to try new things. These experiences help affirm kids’ bodies in unexpected ways. Also look for activities that diversify children’s experiences, fortify their emotional strength, develop their talents and interests, and widen their circle of peers and mentors. Your church or children’s ministry is a good place to start.
3. Unique Creations—Make clay sculptures of things that are important to each of you. Then talk about why you cherish and care for that item. Remind children that God cherishes and cares for us—and wants us to do the same with our bodies.
