Kids Activity Ideas
ALL the children can fly around a designated area with arms out until the teacher says… FREEZE? They will stop in exactly the position they were “flying” in until the teacher says to FLY. (This is a good way to get alot of extra energy out of the children before story time!)
Divide children into groups of 2. Give children 60 seconds to COUNT the hairs of their partner’s head.
Children will begin to realize just HOW AMAZING it is that GOD knows the hairs on everyone’s heads!!
Let children take turns making actions for ways that GOD loves and cares for us from today’s readings. When someone guesses what the action was, then that child can take a turn in showing the class an action.
JELLY BEAN WRITING CONTEST:
Each child can be given a small bowl of jelly beans. As the teacher gives a word to spell, the children will try to form that short word with their jelly beans, such as GOD, LOVE, CARE, CROSS, etc. If children are younger, the teacher could have them form a cross or a bird, etc. Children may eat their beans if their hands were clean before doing the writing contest.
