Valentine's Day Presentation

Can be used with readers and non-readers.

Cut out large multi-colored posters into the shape of those famous Valentine's heart candies. But rather than writing the traditional sentiments such as, "Kiss Me," or "My Baby," write one Fruit of the Spirit attribute on each poster, i.e. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. The non-readers can hold up the cards, while the readers call out the individual fruit attribute. You could also have an older child recite . . .

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 food craft idea. 

Make round tags from plastic milk jugs – large enough to write each fruit of the Spirit on them 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 works well too.) 

Cut colorful yarn or ribbon for each child – about 24 inches long. (Long enough to tie and then slip over child's 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, i.e. "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.

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.

This activity is from Chapter 2, "Yield," in
