Bible Memory Verse
David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior-- from violent men you save me. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. (2 Samuel 22:1-4 NIV) Learn more about King David in Super Heroes of the Bible.

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.

Fruit of the Spirit Necklace

It has always been a challenge to instruct young children to learn Galatians 5:22-23. There are so many words to remember. A song always helps – but so will this tasty craft idea. 

Make round tags from plastic milk jugs – large enough to write the each fruit of the Spirit on individually. (Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.) Make sure that you leave enough room for a hole to be punched. (Card stock would work as well.) 

Cut colorful yarn or ribbon for each child – about 24 inches long. (Long enough to be able to tie and slip over their head with ease. 

On the yarn or ribbon strands, string the variety of colors of Fruit Loops – then add a “Fruit of the Spirit” tag ie. "Love." Continue adding another set of Fruit Loops – then add the "Joy" tag next. Continue repeating the pattern until all of the names of the "Fruit of the Spirit" are on the strand. 

Adjust the “Fruit of the Spirit” strands to fit each child and secure loosely around their neck. (Please remember: The necklace should be able to be removed over the child’s head comfortably.)

Yield to God

Begin by asking children what it means to yield? (To yield means to give in, to surrender or submit to another. When we yield to God, we surrender our will, our lives, to him.) 

(Clay is a perfect hands-on object to illustrate “yielding.” As you mold and shape the dough, it conforms, “yields its shape,” according to the pressure that is placed on it. Illustrate this point by pushing and forming clay into different shapes and reading the verse, below.)

O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)

This verse tells us that God’s children are like clay in our Father God’s hands. As we learn to yield our lives to him, he molds us and makes us to be like him. 

Have children make clay dough to remember that when we yield our lives to God, he molds and shapes us to become the people he wants us to be. Get the recipe for clay dough.
