The Shield of Faith

You can move the Shield of Faith around to protect yourself.

Helmet of Salvation (More)

We explained that a helmet protects your brain which is inside your head.  Your brain is the size of your two fists together. 

See other Helmets of Salvation in September 2014 post.

Creation, Day 4

God made the lights in the sky on day 4 of creation.  He made the sun for the day and the moon and stars for the night.  (Genesis 1:14)  That means that on day 1, He made the light, but it was not the sun, moon, or stars.

They are holding up 4 fingers and the sun.

I barely got this picture before clean up!
These stars glow in the dark, so we turned out the light.  There is a moon or two in there too.  We explained that the Earth only has one moon.  There is also only one sun.  There are so many stars that it is impossible to count them.

We also got out the black light too.  The stars were even brighter, and our classroom was transformed too.  We got out a mirror so the kids could see their smiles under the black light.  So much fun!

Jesus Says Activity

Ms Jan plays "Jesus Says" with kids.  It is just like "Simon Says."

At the end of the game, she says, "Jesus says to come unto me."  All the kids run to her.  They love this game.  Hopefully, we are subtly introducing the idea that they should pay attention to what Jesus and God say to do . . . No one thinks Ms Jan is Jesus do they?
