"Mothers Are Important Too" Bible Lesson and Craft Ideas

Teaching Concept: There are many stories in the Bible about important people and events such as the creation of the world and God sending his only son to save the world from sin, but sometimes we forget about the important women in the Bible and the roles they played in God's plan for the world. Mother's day is a great day to think about how these mothers might have felt.

Mothers of the Bible Review Game www.daniellesplace.com

This lesson is taught using a series of pictures (or one picture) of five mothers and sentence cards that describe each mother. Before class teachers print out the pictures of the mothers and staple them to the bulletin board. In class children take turns picking one of the sentence cards, reading it and placing it under the appropriate picture. Ask the class to review the stories. Then the class can share how they think these mothers might have felt.

Activities:

1. Act Out Bible Stories - The teacher assigns groups of children different Bible references about mothers. The children read the stories and then act out the story from the mother's perspective for their classmates.

2. Who Am I? - The teacher or a student reads short paragraphs written from the Bible mother's perspective and the students try to guess who the paragraph is describing.

"How to Say I Love You" Bible Lesson for Older Children

"How to Say I Love You" - In this lesson children learn what it means to love someone and how to express their love to their mothers. Many objects are used such as candy, a clock, a compass, a measuring tape and others, to represent different ways our mothers show us love. These objects are also used in a memory game to review the lesson and to study the Bible verses that go with this lesson from 1 Cor. 13.

Play a Family Feud Type Game - Before class write at the top of the board "What Your Mother Does to Show You She Loves You". Under the title write the numbers one through five.

Tell your children as they walk in that you are going to have a contest. Give them each a piece of paper and tell them to write down the numbers one through five on their papers. Tell them that you have a list of the five most mentioned things that mothers do to show us that they love us. You want everyone to write down what they think are the top five things that they think the people surveyed have picked. The student that gets the most right will get a prize.

What Your Mother Does to Show You She Loves You:
1. She tells me she loves me.
2. She hugs and kisses me.
3. She teaches me.
4. Spend times with me.
5. She takes care of me.

Crafts:
