10 Little Things

Teachers you can do all of these things or some of these things, in any order.

1. Free Time


Play with the kids, and encourage them to play together.

2. Read the story of Samson from the children’s Bible

Explain to the kids that God can give us physical strength like Samson but he also gives us strength to do what is right!

Ask the kids:       “Is it sometimes hard to say I am sorry?”

“Is it sometimes hard to share our toys?”

“Is it sometimes hard to obey our parents?”

Tell the kids:      “God can make us strong to do what is right!”

3. Testing Our Strength

Remind the children how Samson was VERY strong then have the kids do little activities like run from one end to the other 3 times, have them do 5 push ups, carrying a book to one end to the other, how far they can throw a stuffed animal etc. to show how strong they are.

Teacher says: Now let’s see how strong God made Samson!

“My God is so Big”

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty

There’s nothing my God cannot do

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty

There’s nothing my God cannot do.

The Mountains are his, the valleys are his, the stars are his handiwork too

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty

There’s nothing my God cannot do

6. Bible Verse
