There are always times in life when we make new friendships.

What makes a good friendship?

  • Look at the bricks and choose five qualities or characteristics that make the foundation of a good friendship.
  • You can write your own on a blank brick if you would like.
  • Once you have chosen your five, you can take a piece of string. In your string, tie 5 knots, to represent the characteristics you have chosen. You can take this away with you as a reminder of what you look for in a good friendship.
