Barbell Snack

I saw this treat on Pinterest and had to find a way to incorporate it into one of our lessons.  It’s perfect for Father’s Day or any lesson where you’re trying to emphasize strength (ie: being strong in the Lord, Samson’s strength, etc.)  Thank you to CandiQuik for the original idea! Ingredients: Keebler Fudge Stripes […]

Father’s Day Snack Gift

For Father’s Day we decided on a very simple gift for the fathers.  I bought some meat sticks and a variety of small candy bars for the children to choose from to give their fathers. All you have to do is cut a short length of ribbon to tie them together and the kids can […]

Mother’s Day Treat Bag

For our Mother’s Day lesson, the kids put together treat bags to give their mothers.  Each child got a quart-size ziploc and picked out snacks which were lined up buffet-style on a table.  The treat bag accompanied the Mother’s Day card that each child made. Here’s the list of what we had, but next year […]

Pin the Flower on Mom Game

For our lesson on Mother’s Day, we played a game called Pin the Flower on Mom.  Sort of like we’re pinning a corsage on her shirt.  I used an old poster board to draw a picture of a mom (please don’t ask me why her hair looks like that) and then we put it on […]

Mom I Love You to Pieces Card

I found this card design on Pinterest and thought it would be a fun option for the kids to make this year.  The little ones will need help with the writing, but it also gives them the chance to tear pieces of paper and glue them on.  Yay — something they will excel at! Materials: […]

Fingerprint Bee Mother’s Day Card

Materials: Plain white card Colored card stock for flower petals Yellow card stock for middle of the flower Glue Yellow paint / washable […]

Father’s Day BINGO

We played a “Dads of the Bible” BINGO game for our Father’s Day lesson.  You can download your own set at Children’s Ministry Deals.  We used Cheerios as our markers.  You can play for prizes or not, it doesn’t really matter.  We had a bucket of little trinkets that the kids got to choose prizes […]

Mother’s Day Gift 1

For Mother’s Day one of our teachers made up these little gifts for all the moms.  (Yes, a mom is making gifts for all the other moms.  Isn’t that usually how it works out?)  She just filled some little drawstring gift bags with Hershey’s Hugs and attached this gift tag.  The art came from Carla […]

Father’s Day Gift 2

Another lady put together these little s’more baggies for the kids to give their dads on Father’s Day.  I don’t know where she got the printable from, but if you search on Google, you’ll find several options.  My only bit of advice would be to wait to make them up until the night before, or […]

Father’s Day Gift 1

For Father’s Day this year we made up this cute little card with batteries taped to the back to give to the dads at church.  I don’t have the file so you can print it, but it gives you an idea to start with.  Someone else at church made it.  I think it’s very cute […]
