(They will decide which labeled pot that the seed should be planted in. Example: if the question is about mom it would go in the “parents pot”, or if the question is about teachers it would be inserted in the “teacher’s pot”, etc.)
(Then a child will insert the “kindness seed” into the designated pot which will fall into the attached Ziploc bag and then have a child will pretend to water the pot.)
|Back of plant pot. The ziploc back is cut and the front is taped through the slit and attached to the other side. The pipe cleaner is taped to the bag|
(When the pipe cleaner is fully extended, then take the sunshine ray that matches the pot’s label and read extra light from the Lord to help our love grow more.)
(Finally attach the paper flower on top of the pipe cleaner.)
(Paper flowers are made from folding tissue paper, cutting slits, wrapping them around a straw and taping the end to the straw.)

NONMEMBERS- You tell a nonmember friend at school about your fun activity day girls’ activity last week. She seems interested. How could you plant a kindness seed?
My family is a garden,
A place where we can grow.
Our garden is for people,
Not plants grown in a row.
We’re growing love and patience.
We’re growing kindness, too.
We’ve planted seeds of service
For things we all can do.
Politeness grows inside us;
We’re sharing more each day.
Our smiles are growing bigger—
Like the hugs we give away.
We can tell that we are growing
The seeds of love and cheer—
We fill our home with sunshine
And feel our Savior near. http://www.lds.org/churchmagazines/2002/Jun2002Friend.pdf Elaine Champion, 2002 June Friend
I challenge you to plant kindness seeds this week, to your family, friends, teachers, neighbors and nonmembers. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
