8-10 old CD's that you don't need or use anymore, hot glue gun, glue sticks. An adult will need to hot glue for younger kids.
Turn on your glue gun. While it's heating up, place the CD's on your work area with the shiny sides up. Arrange the CD's so they overlap one another. Keep one CD towards the top of your arrangement, so you can see the hole. You will use that hole to hang your CD-Mirror. (Even though this CD is at the top, it will also be the first CD you lay down on the table. It must be at the bottom of the pile, but the top of the arrangement.) When you are satisfied with your arrangement, pick up one of the CD's at the top of the pile and place the glue onto the CD below it. Press the CD's together for a few seconds, count to 20 to give them time to bond. Then pick up the two CD's you just glued, and place the glue onto one of the CD's below them. Press together, count to 20. Continue doing this until you reach the bottom of your pile. The last CD will be the one with the hole showing to hang it up.
Bible Object Lesson
Have you ever looked into a mirror, combed your hair, fixed yourself up, then walked away and a few seconds later forgot if you combed your hair or washed your face? (I must confess I have!)
The Bible says in James 1:23-24, "For if you listen to the word and don't obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like" (NLT).
The Bible shows us the way we
look--on the inside--the way we look in our spirit. Apart from Christ, we don't look very good!
But with Christ*, we are made to look like him! God wants us to know his Word and do what it says. The next time you look into your CD-Mirror, ask yourself,
"Do I look like Jesus? Am I reflecting him to those around me?"
*2 Corinthians 3:18
