Materials:

1 piece of good bread
1 piece of moldy bread
a few paper napkins

Preparation:

Leave a few pieces of bread out, so that mold will grow on the surface of the bread.

What you will do during class:

You will pretend to make a sandwich using a piece of bread that is moldy, to demonstrate how even a little bit of mold can ruin a good sandwich. Compare this to how even a little bit of sin, without Jesus can keep us from going to heaven. 

What you will say:

Hi everyone! Man, I am hungry. I think I will make a nice tasty sandwich. (Take the good piece of bread and set it on a napkin) Okay here is the first piece of bread. It is a great start to a tasty sandwich! (Take out the moldy piece of bread and make a yucky face) Oh, Gross!  This piece of bread has mold growing all over it! I'm not going to eat that!" How many of you would eat a sandwich made using moldy bread. Even a little bit of mold would ruin a great sandwich.  Sin has the same effect on us; God will not allow anyone with even a little bit of sin into Heaven. The sad news is that all of us have sinned. The good news is that God loves us so much that He sent Jesus into the world to forgive us of our sins. If we rely on Him and take advantage of the Atonement, we can return to live with Him someday.
