- white glue
- washable markers
- Glue Dots
- googly eyes
Talk About Being Sad
Say: Today we heard that God was kind to Hagar and her son. He comforted them when they were sad.
Share about something that makes you feel better when you’re sad. Maybe it’s a hug from your children, a special song, or talking to a friend.
Ask: • What makes you feel better when you’re sad? Kids may say a favorite stuffed animal, a hug from their mom, or talking to their grandpa.
Say: God is kind to us. He’s always with us to help us feel better when we’re sad.
Make a Kind Buddy
Say: Let’s make something we can use to remember that God is kind and is always with us. We can even use it to remind others of God’s kindness when they’re sad.
- Give each child a sock and some markers.
- Encourage kids to draw a face on the sock near the toe. They can also draw clothing or decorate it any way they’d like.
- Help kids use white glue to add hair and Glue Dots to add googly eyes to their puppets.
Share the Kindness
After kids finish their puppets, show them how to put their hands into the socks and open and close their hands to make the puppets “talk.”
Say: Our puppets can be with us when we’re sad. They can remind us and our friends that God is kind and he’s always with us. Let’s practice using our puppets to tell our friends about God’s kindness right now. Encourage kids to use their puppets to tell each other about God’s kindness
