Hold up a dirty coin and a shiny coin of the same denomination (dimes, for example). If necessary, explain the value of the coins (ten pennies each). Ask the children if one is worth more than the other. Discuss that even though one is prettier and shinier than the other, they're both still worth the same.
Explain that even though people look different and have different strengths and weaknesses, Heavenly Father loves us all very much. This might also be a good time to explain that as parents, you will always love your children for who they are, and not for what they do.
D&C 18:10: Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.
1 Samuel 16:7: The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
