“Teach me, O Lord, to follow your directions” Psalm 119:33

Have the kids walk the path marked with arrows made out of construction paper marked on the floor. Each arrow will be one word of the verse. Have the kids walk through the path saying each word as they go…they will need to be prompted as they can’t read or even speak that well sometimes! Just repeating it over and over is the most important. And continue this until they have lost interest.

7. Craft

Butterfly magnet clothespin

Materials:

  • Clothespins
  • white coffee filters with poem printed ont he sides where the wings are going to be
  • stickers
  • felt markers

Instructions:

Have the children colour the coffee filter with markers and decorate with stickers. Place the coffee filters in the clothespins by scrunching up the middle and sliding the coffee filter through until it reaches the middle and looks like a butterfly. The poem should show on the wings…

“Butterfly, butterfly, fly to my mother. Whisper so softly how much I love her!”

2. Bible Story

There is no specific bible story, but you can talk to the kids about how God welcomes everyone no matter who they are and what they look like!! Talk about how God welcomed people even when everyone else didn’t. You could ask the kids if they know anyone they could welcome (or in simpler words “say hi to”)

3. Welcoming Everyone Activity

There will be flash cards with different types of people on them (someone who is sick, someone who is sad, someone who is angry, someone who is little, and someone who is old….etc.)

Show the kids a flash card, describe it to them, and ask them if God loves them and welcomes them to come to Him! Do this with all the flash cards.  Talk about how we also welcome people, and at church as well, everyone is welcome!

4. Take two steps forward Activity

Have the kids stand at one end of the room, and the teacher at the other end. Say the phrases below and ask the kids if it is welcoming or not. Get the kids to put up their hand if their answer is yes. If they say the right answer they can take two steps forward. Who ever gets to you first wins!

- “Hi, my name is….”(is this welcoming? yes)

- “Come over here”(is this welcoming? yes)

- “Go Away!”(no)

- “Come sit with me”(yes)

- “I don’t like you”(no)

- “You smell”(no)
