Kidzone Activities for January and February

Kidzone Activities for January / February 2021

Over the next few weeks on Sunday mornings at CCC Alasdair will be speaking about the Fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness gentleness and self-control – which are mentioned in this year’s motto verses (Galatians 5:22-25).

As we as a church learn more about the Fruit of the Spirit you may want to:

  1. Get a branch from the garden (or wood) and decorate it with 'fruit'. These could be cardboard or paper cutouts of fruit with the Fruit of the Spirit written on them or simple homemade modelling clay fruit shapes.
  2. Write the Fruit of the Spirit on lego or building blocks (one letter per block) and then try putting the blocks together to spell the different Fruit of the Spirit.
  3. Listen to and sing along with the Awesome Cutlery song "Keep in Step".

You may also want to check out the great Out of the Box family series Rooted that premiered on their YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/ootbproductions) in the summer. More information can be found on their website www.outofthebox.me.uk/resources.

Starting on 11th January there is a church wide week of prayer. Prayer points and suggestions are being emailed out every day but we have also included the ones for children and families here.

 

The Fruit of the Spirit is… Galatians 5:22

MONDAY:  LOVE

Play the Awesome Cutlery Song and learn the words this week Keep in step SINGALONG by Awesome Cutlery - YouTube

Read Galatians 5:22 every day this week and memorise this verse – it tells us what God wants us to be like.

Look into the mirror and say:

“God loves me so much he gave Jesus for me” – Thank you Lord for loving me!

Say sorry to God for the times you have not loved others.

Look into the mirror and pray for people you would like to show God’s love to. Pray for your home to be a home of love.

 

TUESDAY:   JOY  

Jump for joy! As you jump shout a thank you prayer for things that make you joyful

 

Sorry – curl up small…what things stop us from feeling joyful? Tell God what they are.

 

Please – ask God to help you remember that He loves you and is always with you so that you can be joyful no matter what happens.

 

Read your memory verse - Galatians 5: 22

 

WEDNESDAY: PEACE  

Make a calm jar together with your family Glitter jars: How to make your own calm down jar or bottle (goodto.com)

Look at the settled jar and thank God for peace

Say sorry to God for the times when you have not brought peace but have fought in words or deeds.

Please – shake your jar and pray about things that worry you. Ask God for His peace as you give Him your worries.

Read your memory verse - Galatians 5: 22

 

THURSDAY: KINDNESS AND GOODNESS  

Send a post card or write a letter to another family in church (you could also draw them a picture)

As a family write down lots of ways you can show kindness to others and put all the suggestions in a jar. Pick one from the jar every day and try to do it without telling anyone!

Thank God for all the ways He has been kind to you – how many things can you think of?

Say sorry to God for when you have not been kind to others.

Ask God to help you say sorry to anyone who have hurt.

Read your memory verse - Galatians 5: 22

 

FRIDAY: PATIENCE  

Watch some online sand timers and think about God’s patience with us. He is always patient and doesn’t get cross with us!

Think about times you have to be patient – how does it feel? When do you have to be patient with other people?

Thank God for being patient with you

Say sorry for when you have not been patient

Ask God for help with being patient – think of times you find being patient difficult and ask God to help you to be more like Him.

Read your memory verse - Galatians 5: 22

 

SATURDAY: Faithfulness  

Do a rainbow scavenger hunt and say a thank you, sorry and please prayer for each colour that you find.

God is faithful and does what He says He will do!

Thank God that you can trust Him

Say sorry to God for times that you have not kept your promises

As God to make you more like Him and to keep your promises to Him and other people.

Read your memory verse Galatians 5: 22

 

SUNDAY : GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL   

Gently blow bubbles but watch them, don’t pop them!

 

Thank God for His gentleness to us

 

Say sorry to God – sometimes we find it hard to be self-controlled. We follow what we want to do even when we know it is not what God would want us to do.

 

Please – watch the bubbles float on the breeze and ask God to keep you in step with the Holy Spirit as you serve and follow Him.

 

Other Resources

We are keen to help you establish a new rhythm and habits that help children connect with God (not just on a Sunday) and with the whole family. We are looking to put together a list of resources that families from CCC have found helpful in this.  Please do get in touch with any that you and your family have found useful and we can share these. Here are a handful to start with:

Please share your children’s drawings by email, or via social media.  Our email contact during this time is socialmedia@culduthelchristiancentre.org or DM us on Facebook or Instagram.

We are praying for you and we love you all lots!  If you are new to CCC, I would love to say hello.
