Need: Paper plates, markers or crayons, paper punch, and yarn.
Directions: Give each child a paper plate on which you have written the words Jesus Loves at the top. Have each child write their name at the bottom of the plate. Then have them draw pictures of themselves above the name and decorate the plate using the crayons or markers (glitter would add that special touch). Punch a hole in the center top of each plate and add a piece of yarn to hang.
