Each student will be given a bag, suitcase, etc. to fill each week until the end when they give it to the person they Lesson One: want to bring. The bag/suitcase will have the things you need to go on a trip (wallet, ticket, itinerary, food, etc.) Real friends stick together. The duct tape is sticky—that’s what makes it work. You need to stick with your friends, to be there when they need you. The person you give your travel bag to should be someone you are committed to sticking with. And duct tape is strong, just like the kind of loyalty that a strong friendship has. Duct tape wallets are not only fun to make, but fun to give away. Each student will make a duct tape wallet to put in their invitation bags. Before making the duct tape wallets, read Proverbs 18:24, “There are ‘friends’ who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.” Loneliness is all around us. Lot’s of people feel cut off or alienated from the world, but there is a way out of the loneliness. There is somebody who is with you always. God is always there to be a friend, and we are God’s examples. Do you know somebody who needs your friendship? Ask God to show you the person you should befriend and give your travel bag to. Materials needed: • Duct tape • Scissors • Practice run for the teacher How to make a duct-tape wallet: Online images and directions for a more sophisticated wallet: http://www.rpi-polymath.com/ducttape/index.php • Cut a strip of duct tape about an inch longer than the length you want your wallet to be. Cut another strip of the same length. Lay them both parallel and sticky side up on the table. Then slide one over the other so there is a half centimetre band of overlap between the two. Attach. Then cut two strips of the same length, lay them sticky side down on top of the two other pieces. Smooth. You now have one side of your wallet. Repeat, for the other side of the wallet. • Now place the two pieces parallel about 3/4 inch away from each other. Cut another wallet-length piece and lay it evenly down between the two, attaching them. Pick this up, and flip. Repeat. • Fold for 2 even sides. • For pockets, cut two pieces the height of the wallet. Lay them down parallel, next to the wallet to make sure they have the proper length. Flip one over and attach (lengthwise) but leave a band about 1/3 inch running from the top to bottom on each of the two pieces.
