What you need:
- FULL clear glass of water
- Lots and lots of paper clips
GENTLY and SLOWLY place paper clip by paper clip in the very full glass of water. Have your students watch as the glass gets fuller and fuller but never topples over and spills everywhere. Relate how this can sometimes be like our lives. We can feel like we are always held down and we don't know if we can fit any more into our schedule, but we can fit that two pages of the scriptures or that morning and night prayer. It all depends on whether we try hard enough or not.
(Careful, if you add TOO many paper clips, the cup COULD spill over. Don't go too far, just far enough to get your point across.)
