Fun Activities (5-15 mins)
Pass the ‘parcel’! Find something special to pass round your family, put on some lively music or use the worship playlist. Stop the music and the person who is holding the object can share something that is super important to them. Take turns until everyone has had a few goes.
WOW, we have so many special things in our lives. Let’s celebrate that
Fill in the ‘Love is’ card with your own ideas and thoughts and use stickers and pens to decorate. Use as a launchpad for spending time with Jesus.
Put God first:
Choose one of the ‘Put God First’ sheets on the template to fill in.
You could chat about the pictures that are most relevant to your child, decorate, cut out and decide where to put them on the sheet (better for younger ones) or fill in your own ideas of what putting God first looks like for you.
Make your own art:
Pull out your crafts, chalks, paints and use Matthew 22:37-38 as your inspiration:
Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’This is the first and most important command.”
Resources: Pdf template, pens, paper/card, tape, craft material.
Prayer Ideas: (5-10 mins)
Spend time with the King: Ask your child what they’d like to do to spend time with Jesus, or take it in turns to do each person’s ideas throughout the coming week:
Have an Adventure Time? Shout ‘thank you’s’ to God? Lie down to quiet music? Pray for each person in turn? Read a favourite bible verse? Go for a walk? Jump up and down to loud worship?
Prayer Pebbles: Find your prayer pebbles and challenge each person to choose one to help them pray! Or pass one around your family and take it in turns to pray for what that pebble represents.
