Do you put God first?
See the source image
 
During this lesson, we explore how each of us put’s God first in our lives?  Do you sometimes forget to give to God first?  You can use an example of a banana to help illustrate for your kids what happens when we spend our time or money on something else first by taking bites of a banana until there is nothing but the peel or “scraps” left for God.
 
Download this banana coloring page to have your child think about the ways they can give to God first.

God Is Faithful Craft
Supplies:
  • Cloud printable-click here to download
  • construction paper (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) *you could also use white paper and have your kiddos color each strip one of the colors of the rainbow
  • colored pencils, markers
  • glue
  • tape
  • pipe cleaner (OR yarn, string)
Directions:

STEP 1

The first thing you will want to do is print out the cloud printable onto white cardstock or paper.

You will need to cut out the construction paper into 1 1/4″ strips. Each child will need a red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple strip of construction paper.

STEP 3

Kids can color in the Faithful letters on their cloud. Using rainbow colors on the letters greatly compliments the craft’s finished look!

STEP 4

Take each of their strips of construction paper and glue it to the back of the cloud. Have them put a little bit of glue on the top of each strip and then add it to the back of the cloud one at a time, working from left to right (purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.)

STEP 5

In order to allow the craft to hang, bend a pipe cleaner in half and attach it to the top of the cloud on the back with a piece of tape.

Paint Blowing Craft 
 

What you need:

  • paint (we used acrylic paint in red, yellow, and orange)
  • paper
  • straws (you can make this craft eco-friendly by usingpaper straws)

 

How to do Paint Blowing for Pentecost

  • Squeeze some paint directly onto your paper.  You need a fair bit of paint to get some good distance with your paint blowing.
  • Point your straw at the paint (not in the paint) and blow.

Parents, you may want to write the verse ahead of time: Bible Verse for this craft | Acts 2:4   Then, like wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks.

 

How you can experiment with paint blowing:

  • blow the paint in different directions
  • use different amounts of force (hard, sharp blows v. softer and longer blows)
  • put one color on top of another color.

Materials:

-Popsicle sticks (or accordian book template)

-12 Disciple printout

-crayons, markers

-tape, glue

-Construction paper (brown, blue, white) to make boat and water

 

Directions:

  1. Color each of the disciples and cut out figures.
  2. Either glue them onto the accordion mini-book if you are making the mini-book (refer to the directions page for mini-book) OR glue/tape each apostle to a popsicle stick.
  3. You can use the boat template or create your own. Make sure to leave the top of the bottom open to place your disciples in the boat!

 

**Parents, this is a great activity to talk about discipleship and what it means to follow Jesus.  You can reference how several of the disciples gave up their old life to follow Jesus (Peter, Paul), left their home and belongings.  While Jesus isn’t calling us to leave our loved ones today, what are some ways we can follow Jesus in our own lives as kids? As families?

 

I would love to see you post pictures of kid’s finished craft on The Gatherlings’ Facebook page!

 

 Blessings,

 Ms. Carmen xxx
