Recipes for Happiness Beatitudes Bible Lesson for Children's Ministry

 

Beatitude Recipe for Happiness www.daniellesplace.com

 

Scripture References: Matthew 5:1-12 - The Beatitudes, Psalm 146:5, and John 6:1-14

The following ideas come from the Sunday School lesson "Recipe for Happiness" on The Resource Room. In this lesson children learn that the happiness the world offers doesn't last very long, but true happiness comes from God and obeying his words. This lesson goes with the lesson "Taste and See".

Bible Verse Review Concentration Game

Taste and See that the Lord is Good Bible Verse Review Game for Children's Ministry for Beatitudes Sunday School lesson from www.daniellesplace.com

Before class print out cookie men cards and cut them apart. (Patterns available to members only.)

In class place the cards face down on the table. Have your children take turns turning over two cards at a time trying to find matches. If you children are too small to read, read the words on the cards as they turn them over. They will help them to remember the verses and what they mean.

If a child finds a match, have him read the words on the card and give an example of what is written on the card.

1. Before class make cookies and cookie jars from card stock and cut them out. (Patterns available to members only.)

3. Prepare the Cookie Jar. Fold the Cookie Jar Pattern in half and tape along the side and bottom edge.

4. Hide the cookies in the room.

5. After the lessons write the Bible verse on the board and go over the verse. Then have your children go and find one cookie each. Tell them to go back and sit down when they have found one cookie. When all the cookies have been found go over the verse again, one word at a time. Ask the child with the cookie with the word you are looking at to bring his cookie up and place it in the cookie jar; or have him tape it to the wall.

You can also make a set for each child to take home and practice his or her Bible verse during the week. Use only the first half of the verse for younger children.

"Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:" Psalm 146:5

I would like to say a huge 'Thank You' for producing and maintaining such a wonderful site. Your ideas for crafts and lesson plans have been an enormous help over the years with my work as a teacher of Nursery/Reception children (aged 3 1/2 - 5). The lessons are all age appropriate and give the message in such a fun way that the children remember it. Many thanks and may you have continued success for many years. Jane
