Younger Ones: Notes of Encouragement
Gather construction paper and markers. Allow children to decorate the paper. Then help by writing an encouraging message on the note. Together think of someone who may need this note of encouragement, such as a friend, family member or neighbor. You may even want to add some homemade cookies to the note!
Older Ones: Knock Down Idols
Gather 10 bottles of water, sticky notes, a marker and a tennis ball. Help kids brainstorm things that people tend to value more than God, such as money, relationships, success at school or in activities, popularity, celebrities we follow, our looks or possessions. Have kids write an example of an idol on a sticky note and place it on a water bottle. When all ten bottles have a note, line them up like bowling pins and knock them down.
