Reward spontaneous demonstrations of peacemaking with a small treat.
Goal: Practice harmony.
Life is good and pleasant for everyone when family members live in unity. We can easily take it for granted when children are getting along well. Instead of ignoring the peace, choose to celebrate it!
When you hear a child choosing to be a peacemaker, surprise the playmates by giving a small treat to all of them. As you do, recite Psalm 133:1. Keep the reward small and simple so you can repeat it often (e.g. a chocolate chip, a mini-marshmallow, a sticker or a penny). You may also choose to link this suggestion with the kick-off craft by offering additional decorations for the musical instruments as rewards.
“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!”
