Preparation: Make a cardboard box oven, a chef's hat (a strip of white paper with a white plastic grocery sack taped inside, so it puffs out the top) and a bunch of ingredients to make cookies. Make a separate set of cookies ahead of time, hide them so the children don't see them.
Directions: Each cookie ingredient represents an ingredient to faith. When a child thinks of an ingredient for faith (such as desire for faith, asking questions, praying, searching the scriptures, etc.) he/she gets to wear the chef's hat and add an ingredient. Then have everyone "test their faith" by putting the cookie dough in the cardboard box oven. A few minutes later, pull out the pre-baked cookies and call them "faith cookies", because they were the product of all of the ingredients to faith.
