Condensed version-
Have them take a piece of paper, draw a happy face on it. Have them say mean, hurtful things while crumbling it up. Once its in a ball have them apologize and say nice things while smoothing it back out. Once the paper is open have them look at it and notice whats wrong with the paper(all the crinkles). Talk about how when youre nasty to someone, even if you apologize and try to make up for it, damage is left behind-you can never fully make up for/take back for what youve done.
