Gather green plastic army figures in a bowl, a clear plastic bin, and some type of scoop.
Fill the bin with some water and place all of the soldiers in it. Keep the empty bowl by the bin.
Have your child scoop the soldiers out of the water bin and place them in the bowl. Say, “We have a lot of soldiers! We need to take some away!”
Continue taking them away until there are only a few soldiers left.
We started with a lot of soldiers but ended with a few, just like Gideon and his army. Even though Gideon only had a few soldiers, he still won the battle! God’s way is always perfect!
