I really like sharing this verse with youngsters of all ages but when I share it with preschoolers I have a tendency to emphasis on the 1st 3 fruits of adore, pleasure and peace. Below is a exciting Bible college action to aid your tiny types find out the very first portion of this verse. I phone it “Fruit of the Spirit Spin and Toss.”
Here’s what you do:
For this action you will need to produce 9 massive circles the youngsters will toss. I developed mine from the tops and bottoms of frozen juice cans. On three of the circles, connect a image of a heart. On three, connect a image of a joyful smile and on the final three attach a photograph of a tranquil sleeping infant or child. You will also need to have a massive bowl or bag into which the circles will be tossed. Lastly, you will want to make a line on the flooring with a piece of chalk or tape guiding which the kids will toss the circles.
Here’s how to perform:
Choose a youngster to appear forward and stand driving the line. Prior to permitting him toss the 9 circles into the bowl, slowly and gradually spin him around while stating the adhering to Bible verse to a bit of a defeat. Emphasize the phrases I have underlined:
“But the fruit of the Spirit
Is love, joy and peace…”
Following fruits of the spirit subside, enable the kid toss the circles into the bowl 1 at a time. Depend how numerous circles made it in the bucket by encouraging your small kinds to depend along with you. Then position out which type of “fruit” created it into the bucket – adore, joy or peace. When exhibiting every circle, you may well say, “God wants us to love 1 an additional,” or “God wants us to be joyful,” or “God wants us to be tranquil.” Soon after each little one has had at least one particular flip. You might want to conclude your activity by handing out fruit cups.
