Grace Kids Lesson June 21st
Talk about it:
- white paper lunch sacks (1 per child)
- fun stamps and stamp pads
- boxes of tissues that are dispensed by being folded together (one ½-inch stack of tissues per child)
- transparent tape
- Make a sample craft to show kids.
- Cut the lunch sacks so they stand 4 or 5 inches tall when open.
- Open the boxes of tissue, and remove the tissues from the box. Make sure the tissues stay folded together as you divide the tissues from the box into ½-inch stacks.
Talk About Tissues
Say: When people sneeze, we often say, “Bless you!” and hand them a tissue. That can remind people that God blesses us and takes care of us, even when we don’t feel good and sneeze a lot.
Share about a time you needed a lot of tissues. Maybe it was during allergy season, when you were cleaning out a dusty attic, or when watching a sad movie.
Ask: • Tell about a time you needed a lot of tissues. Kids may say when they had a cold, when they were sad about something, or when they fell and hurt their knee.
Say: It helps to know that God is with us in any hard time. That’s a blessing! Let’s make special tissue boxes to remind us that God blesses those who struggle, even when we need a tissue.
