Charity is the pure love of Christ. The love that we can strive to have for all of the people around us. God's first commandment was to love him, and the second commandment was to love others as ourselves. As we pray for the gift of charity we can be blessed to truly love as God loves and serve as He would.

You will need 5-10 different containers with detachable lids ( for example: jars, sippy cups, empty food canisters, gift boxes, etc.) and a large bag or backpack.
Place all of the lids inside the backpack. Then set all the containers in a row where everyone can see them. Allow children to take turns drawing a lid from the bag, and placing the lid in front of the container that they think is the correct match for the lid (don’t put the lid on yet). Once all of the lids have been placed in front of a container, try placing all the lids on the containers to see if they guessed correctly!
After you complete the activity, discuss the following questions:
1) How many did you guess correctly? (Discuss.)
2) How did you know which container was the right one for each lid? (Discuss things like color, shape, size, type of lid, etc.)
3) How do you know what other people need? (Discuss things that can give you clues, like someone is shivering, something is out of place, etc.)
4) How do you know what other people are feeling? (Discuss things like body language, facial expressions, etc.)
