SHE is a Sweet Mom!

Print colorful sheets of paper to read, 
"is a sweet MOM." Cut the paper to wrap around a Hershey® candy bar so that only the "SHE" of HERSHEY is showing. It then reads, "SHE is a sweet MOM!"

Original idea "SHE is a great Mom," by Teresa Bohannon.

Mother's Day Craft: Handprint Plates

Press hand into bright colored paint, and then onto the back of a clear, glass, dinner plate. (Use paint intended for glass.) Children can also sponge paint the back rim of the plate. Teachers may want to write children's names and Happy Mother's Day on the back. Please note, you will need to print it backwards so text displays correctly when the plate is turned over. Spray paint a clear gloss finish on the back to seal it. (Hand-wash only.)

Mother's Day Bible Application: Honor your Mother (Exodus 20:12), or Blessing your Mother (Proverbs 31:28). To bless means to show honor and respect, courtesy, and consideration to God or another person.

Mother's Day Collage Flower Pots

What you need: Small clay pots, several packets of flower seeds, Modge-Podge, paintbrush, potting soil, popsicle sticks, a Mother's Day poem*.

What you do: Remove the seeds from packets and set aside. Make a note of planting directions before tearing the packets into 2"-3" strips. Use the paintbrush to apply Modge-Podge to pot. Apply strips to pot. It's okay to overlap strips to completely cover pot. Finish by painting a layer of Modge-Podge over entire pot. Allow to dry. Fill pot with potting soil and plant seeds according to package directions. Read on.

Widow, drape a cloth over her head and give her a small jar or pitcher (even a paper cup), she stands in the middle; Widow’s two Children, they stand close to their mother; Elisha, a prophet of God, give him a Bible to carry. He stands to the right; Lender, a Loan Shark, give him/her a notebook and pen or a money bag, s/he starts on the left.

Five jars or cups (more if available). The children will bring these to their mother. Set them to the left.

Narrator: There once was a woman whose husband was a prophet. He was a partner of the great prophet Elisha in the old days of Israel before Jesus was born. He was a good man, but times were hard for those who loved God and he had to borrow some money. He was working on paying it back when he died. So one day the Lender came to the woman.

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.

Bible Game: The Body of Christ

The "Body of Christ-Game" represents our Christian lives. The hoops or teams, represent the Body of Christ, which is made up of many parts: "the teammates." The body works more effectively when the teammates cooperate with one another. Teams are more likely to win by turning when it's the right time or not walking too fast, so as to make someone stumble, and by listening and communicating with one another. And even though only one team will win, this game reminds us that all of Christ’s body wins when we work together! Read on.

Kaleidoscopes: Romans 8:28

Lesson Focus: Build on the idea that our lives, at times, seem broken and useless. But – " All things work together for good for those that love the Lord" Romans 8:28. 

Share an example from your own life or someone close to you, or someone in the church who the children may know, of a situation that was seemingly tragic, but that God used to change lives for good (to bring salvation and/or grow the believer) – and ultimately to bring honor and glory to God. As you tell a story of a broken life or heart . . .
