Sticky note encouragement activity with girls

This past sunday a group of girls and I looked at 1 Samuel 16: 7 :But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”  

To start it out, I had the girls write out encouraging statements on sticky notes and post them on each other.  The girls handled this activity very maturely in making sure that they actually encouraged each other or “posted” a prayer over them.  They also had to make sure that each girl had a sticky note before other girls received another note.  It was a sweet activity.  We used it to discuss how we “tag” each other with compliments or words that stick.  We discussed that God sees us completely different than we see each other.  He sees our hearts!

It was a great introduction to the lesson.


The girls had fun posting sticky notes on each other. They truly enjoyed posting them on their faces, as you can see.


More sticky note fun!
