Lion Face

 Gather scissors, glue, a black marker, two black pieces of construction paper, and one piece of orange and yellow construction paper.

Cut a large heart out of the orange construction paper, a medium-sized heart out of the yellow construction paper, and a small heart out of one of the pieces of black construction paper.

Cut small slits along the bottom and sides of the orange heart to represent the lion’s mane.

Turn the yellow heart upside down and cut small slits only on the bottom to represent the lion’s whiskers.

Lay the other piece of black construction paper down and glue the orange heart in the middle of the page.

Glue the yellow heart inside the orange heart, upside down.

Glue the small black heart in the yellow heart to represent the lion’s nose.

 Draw eyes on the lion’s face.

The king had Daniel thrown into the lion’s den, but he wasn’t scared. Daniel trusted in God and knew that He would protect him – and He did!

Walk the Line

Gather some floor tape.

Make a square or circle on the floor using the tape.

Have your child walk on the taped lines, stop after going around once, and then make a trumpet sound. To make it even more fun, have them shout, “For the Lord and for Gideon!” after they make the trumpet sound. (You can also have them walk fast, or slow, or even hop on the line!)

God taught Gideon the way to go and he defeated the army! God will teach you the way to go too!

Water Play

Gather a towel, an empty bowl, a bowl with some water in it, a sponge, a turkey baster, an empty water bottle, a funnel, and a water pitcher filled with some water. Go on and place the bowls on the towel for easy cleaning!

Pick up the sponge and place it in the bowl of water.

Now squeeze the sponge into the empty bowl until all of the water is out. You can repeat this until all of the water is transferred to the other bowl.

Next get the turkey baster and put some water in it, then release it into the empty bowl. Repeat this as long as you’d like!

Place the funnel in the empty water bottle.

Pick up the pitcher and slowly pour the water into the funnel, until the water is gone or your bottle is filled.

 God gave water to Hagar and her son when they needed it. Talk about how God gives us what we need too!
