Make Life-Size Self-Portraits

Before class tape big pieces of butcher paper (paper used to cover bulletin boards) about 2 feet wide, one next to the other, on the wall. Write the memory verse on each sheet of paper. Have each child stand in front of the paper and outline his or her body onto the paper and then let them color it. When they are finished, roll them up, and tape them closed so they can take them home. If you have children in your class who are beginning to read, you can also have these children label the different body parts on their pictures. Write the different body parts on labels and then have the children place the appropriate label on each body part. Use words such as: head, hand, mouth, nose, ear, foot, etc.


I have to tell you that your site has been as true lifesaver for me. There has been more than once that I have gone to your web site and found just the right lesson for my children church class ( ages 4, 5 and 6). It is a wonderful site ... I look forward to seeing even more great lessons in the months to come. Sincerely, LaWanna

God made my eyes so I can see birds flying and rainbows.
God made my skin so I can feel the sun on my face and a cat's soft fur.
God made my nose so I can smell flowers and popcorn popping.
He made my mouth so I can sing praises to him.

Play a Musical Chairs Game

Arrange the chairs like you would if you were going to play musical chairs. Set up chairs so that you have one less chair than you do children. Play some music and then stop the music. The child who is left standing has to answer a question from the lesson. For example, you can have them repeat the Bible verse, or you can ask them to tell you an example of a large animal that God created, or a small animal, or a slow animal.



"God Made Me" Song

(Sing to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell".)
Slap your thighs and clap your hands as you sing it.

God made me, God made me,
God made everything and God made me.
(Go around the room and use each child's name.)

God made Dustin, God made Dustin,
God made everything and God made Dustin.

(After singing the song with each child's name, ask your children to tell you something they do well, and then sing the song again.)

God made me a helper, God made me a helper,
God made everything, and God made me a helper.

(Children love songs that have their name in them or something about them. They love the attention, it connects the concept or lesson to them, and they pay attention better because they are a part of what is going on. This idea was sent in by Narita Roady.)

(You will find even more songs and ideas for this lesson on The Resource Room. Click on the link to this lesson above.)

Home School Materials are also Included in this Lesson, Including Math Review Games:



Life-Sized Numbers

(Numbers) Before class write the numbers your children are studying on separate sheets of paper. Divide your children up into groups of two. Give each group a piece of paper with a number written on it. Tell your children not to let anyone know what is written on the paper. Pick one group to go first. They should use their whole bodies to form the number written on their piece of paper. See if the other students can guess what number they are forming. Let each group take a turn. When everyone has had a turn make a comment about how wonderful our bodies are. We can do so many wonderful things with our bodies.



Life-Sized Shapes

(Shapes) Divide your children up into groups of three or four. Tell them that they are going to play a game to see which team can form their bodies into different shapes first. When you call out a shape the children in each team should try to form their bodies into that shape using as many teammates as possible.

Draw Pictures and Make a Movie

This is a great activity and takes very little preparation. Have your children draw their favorite things on heavy paper. Tell them to draw something they like to see with their eyes. Ask them to think about why they like to see or draw what they have picked. You can also give them stickers that they can add to their pictures. Stickers are great for very young children who have a hard time drawing.

Video tape each child to make a movie. It would be best if you can do this in a separate room where it isn't noisy. Tell your children to say something about what they drew. They might say, "I like to see beautiful, red flowers. Show the movie to the children at the end of class and when the parents come to pick up their children. Your children will probably want their parents to see them in the movie.


I love your ideas!!!!!!! People ask me where I come up with my ideas and I tell them all about your site. I also told a dear Christian friend who attends a different church than I. I told her how spiritually filled and Bible correct your stories are. I'm glad to have your site and it is well worth the money. Bobbi



Teach Your Children this Rhyme

See how fast they can say it.

This is me, from my head to my toes. (Touch your head and then your toes.)
God gave me two eyes and one little nose. (Point to your eyes and then your nose.)
I can wiggle my ears and stamp my feet. (Wiggle your ears and stamp your feet.)
From my head, to my toes, I'm really neat! (Touch your head and then your toes and then give yourself a hug.)



Play "I Spy"

Bring in some pictures from nature magazines. You can use landscapes, animals, oceans, planets, or anything that God created. Show the children each of the pictures and hang them up in the front of the room. Pick out a picture you want to describe and start by saying, "I spy with my little eyes something God made that __________________________ (Describe something you see in the picture.) Let one of your children try to guess which picture you are describing. The child that guesses correctly gets to take a turn. Make sure your children say the whole saying each time including, "something God made".

Make Musical Instruments

Bring in jingle bells, beads and baubles, and help your children string them on a rope or place them in a Pringle's can with a lid.



Make Listening Tubes

Roll pieces of construction paper up into tubes and tape them closed. Let your children decorate them with stickers. Use them for a Bible verse review games later in class. See the activity section below.



Musical Feet

Tie jingle bells on your children's shoes and sing a song as they walk around the room.



Listening Activity 1

Remind your children that God gave us our ears so that we can listen to him and to others. Tell them that they are going to practice being good listeners in this activity. Pick five children to show the pictures they drew at the beginning of class (or break up your class into even numbers, about five per group.) Let your children tell about all the things they drew on their pictures. When all five children are done, ask the other children who did not show their pictures what things they remember that the five children drew. Give candy prizes to the children who can say something that one of the children drew. Then let the next group share what they drew.



Listening Activity 2

Remind your children that the Bible tells us to not just listen but to do what it says. Today we are going to practice listening and doing what the teacher says. Give each child a piece of paper and a pencil and tell them to listen and do exactly what you say. Make up instructions for what the children should draw according to their age. You might say something like:

1. Draw a big red circle in the middle of your paper.
2. Draw a square inside the circle.
3. Draw three small circle inside that circle and color one in.

When you have finished with your instructions tell the children to compare their papers with their classmates. Discuss how they are the same how they are different.



Bible Verse Review Activity

Before class make enough paper cup phones so that you have one for every child. Make extras because you don't want the child to share them. They will be putting their mouths on them. Poke holes in the bottom of 9 oz. plastic cups with a large needle. Thread kite string through the holes from the outside to the inside of the cup using the needle to poke the thread through. Pull the string through the hole with tweezers. Tie at least 5 knots in the end of the string and cut off the end of the string up to the knot. Pull the string back through the cup so that the knot is tight up against the bottom of the cup. Thread the other end of the string through another cup. Make the strings about 6 feet long.

Review the Bible verse and then give every two children a set of paper cup phones. Remind them that they have to hold the cups so the string is tight (don't let it sag in the middle) and put the cups up against their cheeks with their mouths inside the cup for the phones to work properly. Have them practice telling each other and listening to the Bible verse. Also remind them not to touch the string with their hands when holding the cups. These phones work very well if your children use them properly. It is hard for younger children to keep the string tight as they hold the cups so you may want to talk to each child through a different set of cups if they are having a hard time.



Listening Tube Bible Verse Review Game

Have your children sit in a large circle. Whisper part of the Bible verse or a Bible truth through the tube to the children on your left. Have the children pass the verse around the circle by whispering the verse to the child on their left. When the verse gets back to the child on your right have him say the verse. You may want to let the children make up their own Bible truths and send them around the circle.

I am teaching Sunday Bible School for the first time for Primary class (First Grade) The children were doing so so with the standard lesson plan I was following (they seemed bored). Then I started looking into your site. What a difference! The kids cant wait to see what project we are going to be doing next. I also found that if they have a project to go with the lesson they seem to absorb more of the lesson. This week we did Jonah and the Whale ( I had the milk jug whales done ahead of time) and the children colored TP Jonahs. They had a blast! When the parents picked them up they were thrilled with the project and the lesson itself. Terrie Feher



Listening and Doing Exercise

Tell your children that today they are going to practice being listeners and doers. Tell them that you are going to give them some instructions and they should try to listen, remember, and then do what you say. Start with easy two-step instructions such as:

1. Clap your hands and then tap your toe.
2. Touch your nose with your index finger and rub your elbows together.
3. Blink your eyes and rub the palms of your hands together.

Use body parts that your children may not know the names of to help them learn new words.

Once they have master listening and doing two-step instructions add a third instruction. Give all three instructions without pausing. You want them to practice listening, remembering, and doing more complicated things. Here are some examples of three-step instructions.

1. Touch your forehead, jump in place, and then turn around.
2. Touch your nose, pull your ears, and wiggle your toes.
3. Bend your knees, turn around, and then say please.
4. Bend your wrist
