I welcome your ideas for any easy game, object lesson or the like for children’s church. I am in charge of “super church”, for ages 3-11, and I am always needing fresh ideas to keep the kids interested and having fun!
Below is an idea I would like to share with you. (Courtesy of my Mom, the super teacher.) First, you take a 1 lb. coffee can, emptied and cleaned, and an old tube sock. It can have holes, because you are going to snip off the foot part only leaving a rim below the tube part of the sock. Tape the sock to the top of the can, as shown below. Then, cover the can with any type of contact paper that you like. This is to cover the writing on the can and the taping. You then place small items in the can and allow the child to reach in and feel whatever you have inside. They must try to guess what it is, since they cannot look! The sock fits snugly around the arm and keeps them from seeing! It is good way to illustrate the blessing of our senses, or just for fun!
Send me your ideas via my contact page or post a comment here. I need all the help I can get. 🙂
