I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much! ~ Another sister in Christ, Mable D.

I appreciate these ideas for Sunday School . . . they come in very handy. ~Tessa, East Africa

Yummy Devotion: Prayer Pretzels

Pretzels were originally made by monks to ease their hunger during Lenten fasting. They shaped them to resemble crossed arms in prayer. The pretzels were made with flour and water and no yeast because in the Bible yeast symbolizes sin. The pretzel reminds us of our need to rid the sin in our own lives, and our need to repent and turn to Jesus for cleansing from sin. (See also: 1Corinthians 5:6-8.) 

As Christians we need to examine our lives everyday. We need to ask God to show us our sins: "Search us, O God..." as Psalm 139 requests, and to receive God's cleansing: "Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin..." as in Psalm 51. 

What you do: Use ready-made breadstick dough in a can. Roll the dough into 12"-15" long ropes. Do not overwork the dough; otherwise it becomes difficult to shape. To shape the pretzel: Begin by making a 'smile-shape' with the dough. Take one end of the dough, the 'arm', and fold it down over the middle of the 'smile', overlapping just a bit. Do the same with the other 'arm'. Sprinkle with coarse grained salt. (or sugar) Bake dough according to directions. (The smile-shape reminds us that when we are forgiven of our sins, our lives are gladdened! See vs.12.)

From Psalm Series 2: God Forgives You

Easter Egg Game

Materials needed: One large plastic egg, (about the size of a child's ball and is used as a decoration), Children's praise music with player, small plastic eggs filled with prizes/candy for each player to receive.

How to Play: Played similar to "Hot Potato." Children stand in a circle, then turn on the praise music and pass the large egg around. When the music stops, the child left holding the egg yells out, "He is risen!" and all the other children yell, "He is risen indeed!" You then give a small prize egg to the child with the large egg and s/he is out of the game. Play continues until everyone has a prize egg.
