Don't you just love Pinterest? I hope you all have discovered it and are pinning away. I work with the young women in our church and we made these last night. I had several colors and styles for them to choose from. Gareld cut a 2x6 into four inch blocks and we mod podged them on. Top it off with a cute bow and they each had something new for their room.
We talked about the world's view of beauty and then I asked them to think of words that described what beauty means to them. What makes someone beautiful? They came up with words like self-confidence, kindness, honesty, integrity, strong, friendly, virtuous and inclusive.
I had the girls write the words on the back of the block along with this quote:
"Happy girls are the prettiest." Audrey Hepburn
