Introduction to craft: sermons4kids.com
Remove all blue crayons from the container. Have the students draw a picture of themselves using the remaining crayons (be sure to tell the students to press hard with the crayons while coloring). Next discuss how sometimes it is hard to be the person that God wants us to be (Example: What kind of person does God want us to be? How can we be that person? Etc.) Explain that God wants us to remain the person he made us to be. He does not want us to become stained by the world. Tell the students the blue water color represents being stained by what is happening in the world that is trying to change us from the person God wants us to be. Have the students paint over their picture with blue water color paint. (The wax in the crayons repels the water color paint allowing the picture to show through.) Tell the students that we remain the person God made us to be. We remain faithful because we ask Jesus to help us be separate from the world and the person that God’s wants us to be shines through.
Case of the Missing Person (Jesus Returns to Heaven)- In this game, kids will try to figure out who’s missing from the class. They’ll get an idea of how some people must have felt after Jesus returned to heaven. (The Encyclopedia of Bible Games for Children’s Ministry by Group Publishing, page 104.) Go to Table of Contents and click on page 104.
Play the game “Telephone” (use an empty cardboard paper towel roll). Start with today’s memory verse, then let the kids think of other Scriptures to pass around the circle. Talk about how we can share God’s Word with others.
Introduce games- Jesus told the disciples that they would be able to proclaim the gospel to every creature in the world. He told them that “they will speak new languages”. Let’s see if you can listen and understand a new language.
bobblesworldesl.com- Handkerchief Race: Make foreign language flash cards (2 of each word). Pass out all the cards to the students who are sitting in a group (or maybe in a circle). The teacher holds a handkerchief up and then calls out a card. The two students who have that card stand up and try to get to the handkerchief first. (You can also just have the students race to a finish line and the first one over the line wins.)
What Does This Word Mean?
Have a list of foreign words and their meanings. Divide the class into teams. Say a word from your list and ask one team what the word means. You can also write the word on the board. If Team #1 is correct, they get a point. If they are not correct, Team #2 may try. If Team #2 is correct they get a point. The team with the highest score wins.
