Activity #5: “Friendship Pie”

Students work together in small groups to create a friendship pie that is full of positive phrases about what makes a good friend.


  • Cherry template (provided)
  • Brown, red, and green construction paper
  • Tinfoil pie plates
  • Tissue paper (variety of colours)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black felt pen

Teacher Preparation:

  • Print enough cherry templates onto manila tag board for each student.
  • Assemble students in groups of 3 or 4.


Step by Step:

Step One: With the cherry template, students trace and cut their cherry out of red construction paper.

Step Two: Students cut a thin strip of green construction paper and glue it to the top of the cherry as the stem.

Step Three: From the brainstormed list of what makes a good friend, students print one of these ideas on their cherry using a black felt pen.

Step Four: Use the tissue paper as pie filling by crumpling it and gluing it into the bottom of the pie plate until it reaches the top.

Step Five: Students tear thin strips of brown construction paper and criss-cross them across the top of the tissue paper to be the pastry. Glue them into place.

Step Six: Involve the students when displaying this activity on the bulletin board, having them secure their cherries in close proximity to their pie.


End Product:

A delicious-looking display of cherry pies that help reinforce characteristics of what makes a good friend.
