UNITOTS (3 - 4 year olds):
Who LOVES bubbles! I know I do.
This less is called "Breath of God from "Little Stories for Little Children", Donna McKee Rhodes
Theme: God's Breath is in Each of Us
Object: A bottle of Bubbles
Lesson: Who likes to blow bubbles?
There are all types of bubbles; one big one, multiple small ones and a mixture and we can make bubbles with bubble solution, bubble gum, bubbles in the bath tub, blow into a straw in your drink cup.
What is the one thing we have to have to make bubbles...... OUR BREATH!
God gave us the breath of life long ago. Each of us has God's breath inside us today.
We affirm: "Thank you God for the breath of Life that helps us grow
Expression: Cut blue tissue paper in the shape of circles (bubbles). Let the children make a picture of bubbles by gluing the tissue onto darker blue costruction paper.
Activity: Go outside and blow bubbles. Use all different sizes of bubble makers
UNIKIDS (kindergarten to fifth grade):
Affirmation: God is everywhere. God's Love is in, through and around me at all times!
A Joyful Path - Book 1
Jesus Lesson from John 18:36 - "My kinddom is not from this world."
Jesus said his kingdom is not from this world - that is where some misunderstanding about another place in heaven may come from.
Jesus meant his purpose was not to create a kingdom with a castle and a throne like some were expecting. His purpose was to remind us that we can experience
God everywhere because spirit exists within us and is not confined to only what we can see or touch.
Quote: "Every creature is full of God and is a book about God."
- Meister Eckhart
Activity: Go outside and have the children look around and see God in all things. Have them pick up a few things (leave, sticks, stones etc) that they see God in. They will share their findings in Circle time when you go back inside.
