Play and think about what we treasure
Create a sensory basket full of ‘treasure’ for the children to explore. Include glittery cloth, tinsel, shiny ribbon, baubles, old CDs, toy coins, giant sequins, toy jewels.
Create an impression and think about money
Fix some coins to a table with sticky tac. Show the children how to make a coin rubbing using thick crayons on paper. Remind the children that Jesus asked the rich man to give up his money to follow him.
Song title (new words to the tune of: I'm a little teapot)
I’m a little child, tall and proud,
sometimes cheeky, sometimes loud.
When I’m feeling angry, God feels far,
stop, and breathe, God’s where you are.
Give each child a pot of bubbles and encourage them to blow lots of bubbles. As they do so, pray:
Lord, help us to blow away the things that come between us and God. Amen.
