A Pro-Life Lesson for Kids

I sponsor a pro-life club at school.  It includes boys and girls from 10-13 years old.  Here is what we did for our first meeting:

We opened with prayer & snack, then we watched this short video from AFA called “Be a Voice.” It describes what it means to be pro-life in a way that is meaningful and appropriate for all ages.  We discussed the video briefly, then watched the original 25 minute version of Horton Hears a Who.   Afterward we discussed the lessons to be learned from Dr. Seuss:

*(obviously) “A person’s a person no matter how small.”

*Never think you are too young to make a difference.

*Can one person make a difference?  Yes!

*When EVERYONE works together as a team, great things can happen.

* Be a voice for the voiceless…

Then we made Horton bookmarks – one to keep and one to pass on to a friend.  We used grey tag board, fine point sharpies, pencils, a hole puncher, green yarn,  pink pom poms, and a low temp. glue gun.

I know my apostrophe is missing – oops!  You get the idea!  I demonstrated how to draw the elephant part by part.  (They loved that we were drawing the elephant’s butt.  Maybe they just enjoyed hearing me say, “butt.”)  When they were done, I glued the pom pom on for them with the hot glue gun.

We closed with a decade of the rosary.

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 10, 16 and 23. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
