The "O" in Joy of the Lord

The O in Joy

Application:

Three balloons are formed into letters which spell the word "JOY".   The letter "O" is changed into a heart to remind us that as we love and trust in Jesus and He gives us "The joy of the Lord is which is our strength".

Materials You Need:

One E260 balloon (any colour).

Making the Sculpture:

  1. Inflate a balloon except for a small piece and then tie the ends together.
  2. Fold the circle in half to find the mid-point.
  3. Pull down the centre and squeeze out the air several times and then release to form the centre of the heart.
  4. Form the top curves by folding and squeezing the balloon.
  5. With some perseverance, a heart will be formed.
     

 
Making the

Lesson:

Letters are funny shapes when you really think about it.  Let's make a "O" as it is the second letter in "JOY".  What else can we do with an "O" letter?

A letter "O" has no beginning and no ending, and is like the everlasting love of Jesus for each one of us.  Now we will change it into a "Heart" to show our love for Jesus in return.

God bless!
