Instructions on How to Make St. Therese Little Acts of Kindness Beads
This little string of ten beads encourages children to make small sacrifices for God and do good deeds for others for love of Him.
St. Thérèse of Lisieux was known for joyfully making small sacrifices to God and doing good deeds for others out of love for Christ. She called this her “Little Way.” Encourage children to imitate St. Thérèse by making a string of Little Acts of Kindness Beads. By moving the beads one at a time from one side of the string to the other, kids and adults alike can count their good deeds. One bead equals one good deed performed for love of God. Encourage children to keep their string of beads in their pocket, backpack or other handy place. Remind them that every time they do a good deed or make a little sacrifice they move closer to Christ and show their love for God.
The instruction sheet features a list of materials, step by step instructions with images, and suggestions for performing good deeds or sacrifices.
