- Balloon posters with the steps of forgiveness. This way when you forgive you can let the balloon go and be released from that burden. If you want to be really fun, bring in helium balloons with questions written on them and let them float to the ceiling when answered. OR if you think your class can handle it, after they answer the question, they can blow a balloon up and let it go.
