Materials Needed:

Tell the students you have lost a sheep.  Ask the children what we should do.   (Find the sheep!)  Then ask the children to help  find the sheep.  Have the children all cheer and celebrate when the sheep is found.  The teacher could hide the sheep again and again for extended play.  This activity is a good one to do prior to the Bible story told in Luke 15:1-7.

Moses’ Sister Was Helpful Activity

December 1st, 2009 by admin

Age Group:This Bible activity is suitable for children of ages three and up.  It works great with multiage groups.

Materials Needed: None!  Just the kids! :)

This activity is great to use after reading Exodus 2:1-9.

Ask students:

  • How did Miriam, Moses’ sister, help?
  • What are some things you could do to help someone, like the Bible says we should?

Brainstorm some ideas of what someone could do help others.  Get kids thinking  specifically about acts of kindness that children (they themselves) could do.

Put the students into small groups of approximately four children.  Explain that they will act out, silently,  a situation where someone is helping and everyone else will try to guess what they are acting out.   Give groups time to practice their situation.  Then have the groups take turns acting their helpful scenario.  After each group performs,  let the other students guess what they were acting out.

Age Group: This Bible activity is good for children from four  to eight years of age.  Older student may simply write their ideas down.

Materials Needed:

  • A blank paper for each child.

Ask students how people have shown love to them.  Take responses.  Ask students how they have shown love to others.  Give students each a blank piece of paper.  Allow students to draw themselves showing love to someone. Then get into a circle and allow students to show the others what they drew.  Alternately, you could have students draw first and then share ideas.  Encourage the children to show love to others in a practical way every day.

This activity can also be done on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, with the drawings being how they can show love to their mothers or fathers on either of those days.
