1 of my favored Bible verses has obtained to be Galatians 5:22-23 which provides us the superb “Fruit of the Spirit.” This is simply because it was 1 of the first Scripture tunes I at any time wrote. I really like sharing this verse with children of all ages but when I share it with preschoolers I are inclined to focus on the initial 3 fruits of enjoy, pleasure and peace. Below is a exciting Bible university exercise to help your small kinds understand the very first portion of this verse. I call it “Fruit of the Spirit Spin and Toss.”
Here is what you do:
For this activity you will require to produce nine massive circles the kids will toss. I created mine from the tops and bottoms of frozen juice cans. On three of the circles, connect a picture of a heart. On three, connect a image of a joyful smile and on the final three attach a photo of a tranquil sleeping child or kid. You will also require a massive bowl or bag into which the circles will be tossed. Last but not least, you will want to make a line on the floor with a piece of chalk or tape behind which the kids will toss the circles.
Here’s how to perform:
Decide a youngster to come forward and stand behind the line. Ahead of letting him toss the nine circles into the bowl, little by little spin him around although stating the following Bible verse to a bit of a beat. Emphasize the words I have underlined:
“But the fruit of the Spirit
Is love, joy and peace…”
Right after the giggles subside, permit the youngster toss the circles into the bowl one at a time. Depend how numerous circles manufactured it in the bucket by encouraging your little types to count alongside with you. Then point out which variety of “fruit” created it into the bucket – love, joy or peace. When showing fruits of spirit , you might say, “God wants us to love one another,” or “God needs us to be joyful,” or “God would like us to be peaceful.” Soon after each kid has had at the very least one switch. You may well want to conclude your exercise by handing out fruit cups.
Just before actively playing this Bible university exercise, you may well want to introduce it in the pursuing way:
Who can inform me their preferred fruit? (Hold out for responses.) I’m so glad all of you like fruit. Did you men know that God enjoys fruit as well? He does. He loves apples and oranges and grapes just like you, but He also enjoys a particular type of fruit called the Fruit of the Spirit this kind of as really like, joy and peace. When we have really like, pleasure and peace in our lives we will be sweet and “yummy” to everybody we meet just like a excellent piece of fruit. Let us enjoy a fun sport to help us don’t forget God’s wonderful Fruit of the Spirit. It’s known as “Fruit of the Spirit Spin and Toss.”
