The Trinity Snowman
by Maureen Spell 


Maureen writes, "After finding some great ideas in the archives regarding snowman parties and using snowmen to explain the Trinity, I came up with a flannel board poem to tell the story."

Materials: flannel board, felt snowman in 3 pieces--the bottom, middle (with stick arms out the side), and head.

The Trinity Snowman Flannel Board Story (For ages PreK-1st)

When you see a snowman
Three snowballs round,
He is reminding you
That in God Three in One are found.

The bottom reminds us of God the Father, 
Our strong rock and foundation 
The Creator of all living things,
People, tribes and nations.

The middle shows us God the Son 
With His arms spread open wide.
Who died on the cross for each of us
Our sins Jesus' blood did hide.

The head reminds us of God the Holy Spirit
Who is our counselor and friend,
He speaks to our hearts and minds
Transforming us in the likeness of Him.

So when you see a snowman
In the midst of all the wintertime fun,
Listen carefully and he'll tell you,
"Remember God is Three in One".
