“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


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


Prewrite the names of each child on the back of the clothespins. There will already be a magnet onthe back so write it somewhere under that. 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!”

8. Prayer

Pray for the children

9. Colouring pages

Print out a little colouring sheet, or use a colouring sheet that turns into a book about mommy

A picture of Job with all the children that God blessed him with…


Teachers, I am asking that at the end of every lesson you have all the children sit quietly while you pray over them.  You do not have to use these words below…but they are from the bible and you could certainly add them to whatever you pray. Let us not miss the opportunity to impart a spiritual blessing on each child.

“I pray this blessing over each one of you.

Each of you is precious in God’s sight.

God sees you every minute of every day and he loves you.

I pray that you will come to know and love Jesus with all your heart for all your days.

May the Lord bless you and protect you.

May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.

May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.
