A Simple and Fun Lesson For Your Children

liz jeressi

I’m volunteering as a ‘camp counselor’ for a week with a local group of elementary school kids, who were given a fun lesson…disguised as a snack.

There are many different ‘stations’ that the kids go to as they rotate around the indoor/outdoor activities, and their favorites were the parachute and the snack table.

When my group of kids got to the snack table they thought they were just going to have vanilla pudding. And that would have been good in and of itself….but there was a great little message taught to them by the adult in charge of the snack table.

And it’s something that, if carried with them, will help these kids relate better to other children at school and throughout life.

After their vanilla pudding lid was pulled back, they each got a drop of red, green, and blue food coloring on top. They were told to mix it in with a spoon. As they slowly swirled it around it looked like a pretty rainbow of colors.

But in the end it turned the pudding black.

Then they were asked to taste the pudding, and, sure enough, it tasted delicious.

The lesson, as most of you have guessed by now, is not to judge a person by the way they look on the outside. It’s what’s inside that counts.

So sweet : )
