ACTIVITY: What's Inside Counts
Two gifts, one dull and the other exciting!
Wrap one in a plain box and the other in a box covered with fancy paper,
bows and ribbons.
Show the two gift boxes. Have the children point out which they would like to choose. Open each to reveal the more exciting present in the plain wrapper!
The wrapping is like our appearance, and the gift inside is like our hearts. To Allah, it doesn't matter what you look like on the outside. It is more important that our heart inside is full of good deeds.
