Kids Activity Ideas
Let children make a colourful Bible Bookmarker with “I WILL HIDE GOD’S WORD IN MY HEART” and tape a seed to the bookmarker. Write in colourful letters today’s Bible verse and try to memorize the verse before leaving class!
TISSUE PAPER FLOWERS:
Make “accordian style” folds in a piece of tissue paper and then pull the tissue layers apart and add a chenille wire for the stem. Add a strip of paper to the stem with today’s Bible verse OR attach a seed packet to the “tissue flower arrangement” and tape a copy of the Bible verse on the packet.
“GOD’S WORD” Book:
Give children paper and markers to draw and cut out a BIBLE and write GOD’S WORD on the front cover. They can then add pages with pictures or words from today’s lesson. Each page could have a SEED drawn or glued onto each and then draw the TYPE of soil that the “seed” fell on (ex: rocky, weeds, good soil, etc).
SOIL AND SEED WALK:
Give each child some seeds and take a WALK outside to place those seeds on the ‘types’ of soil that were discussed in the lesson.
