Kaleidoscope Craft

Kaleidoscopes were invented by a Scottish scientist in 1816. The word kaleidoscope is a Greek word that means "Beautiful Form Watcher;" "kalos" means beautiful, "eidos" means form, and "scopos" means watcher. 

Kaleidoscopes are a fascinating toy and can be used to teach children about reflecting the light of Jesus, in that light brings out the best part of a kaleidoscope. 

Light and mirrors are the two main components in a Kaleidoscope. Without light to pass through the tube, which then reflects off the mirrors, a kaleidoscope will not display the wonderful forms inside. 

Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" John 8:12. Christians are like kaleidoscopes, because when Jesus lives in our hearts, his light shines through us, and we reflect God's beauty, his image.

When you point your kaleidoscope to the light, be reminded . . . get the Kaleidoscope lesson.

Journey to the Cross Rhyming Ideas

Burma Shave signs were an advertising method popular from 1925 to 1963. Large signs were placed at intervals along U.S. highways, with each one showing a line of a four-part rhyme, with the last sign usually reading "Burma-Shave." By placing similar signs along the front of our church properties, homes, or places of business, it would be a creative way to tell the Journey to the Cross story!

Below, are a few rhymes to get you started.

1) Lent is underway. 
2) So kneel down and pray. 
3) Tell God you've sinned. 
4) And let him come in!

JESUS SAVES!


1) Jesus Christ, 
2) Our Passover Lamb. 
3) Was sent from the Father. 
4) So we wouldn't be damned.

JESUS SAVES! 

1) He was thinking of you, 
2) When he hung on the tree. 
3) He took on your punishment, 
4) To set you free.

JESUS SAVES!

Your products are excellent. We have purchased several for our Kids Church and been delighted with every one . . . the Lighthouse was brilliant! ~ Margaret J., Australia.

You have fantastic resources. My favorite is your lessons on the 10 Commandments. Although I taught it sometime ago, the kids still use the hand signals. Keep up the good work. ~ Frances Kemp

I am so thankful for finding your site. I teach, but need lots of help and ideas. I so want to teach these little ones so they know Jesus as Savior. Thank you so very much!
~ Carol W.

I was intrigued with the Amazing Parable Race description [and purchased it]. It allows me to add another resource to my "bag of tricks" for very little additional cost . . . huge plus! I have many of your resources and appreciate the quality of the materials you provide. For a broadly graded class, I find I can easily reach the youngest and the oldest (Preschool through 5th grade) children. Thank you! 
~ Lauren F.

We used the Parables of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle

We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six, two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson. . . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God.
Thank you, ~ April G.

Children's Message: Observing LINT?

Focus: What will you give to Jesus?

Bible references: Romans 12:1 

Two Characters: Preferably older youths or adults

Props: Bag containing a Lint Roller, and a Bible

Person 1: (removes lint roller from bag and begins rolling it on kids clothing, floor, seats, etc. and then looking closely at the roller each time.)

Person 2: What are you doing?

Person 1: (proudly) Observing Lint!

Person 2: I see that, but why?

Person 1: (continues rolling) Itís that time of year when Christians observe Lint for 40 days before Easter.

Person 2: Oh my. Iím glad youíre trying to be faithful, but you have it all wrong! Youíre thinking of Lent, L-E-N-T, not lint, l-i-n-t! Lent is the forty-days leading up to Easter when Jesusí followers remember that he was tempted by Satan in the desert for forty days. During that time . . . Get our Lenten message for Children.

I just want to say that I am very thankful for this site. I have
found a lot of neat ideas for Sunday school and youth group ~ Kim 

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,
