Balloon Bible Verse Review Game

Before class blow up some balloons and write one word of the Bible verse on each balloon. (Use only part of the verse for younger children.)

Go over the verse several times. Play some music and have the children hit all the balloons up into the air. When the music stops tell the children to hold onto a balloon. Write the first word of the verse on the board and ask the children to check their balloons to see if they have the balloon with that word. The child who has the balloon should place it in front of the room and then sit down.

Start the music again and have the rest of the children hit the balloons up in the air. Stop the music and have the child that is holding the balloon with the next word on it place it in front of the room and then sit down. Keep playing like this until all the balloons are in front of the room.

2. In class have your children color sheet. (Printing Problems?)

3. Discuss what it means to be meek. Many people think that being meek is a bad thing; that if you are meek you are weak. But meekness isn't weakness. To be meek means that you realize that everything you are, all your abilities and accomplishments, come from God. He created us and gave us those abilities. It is being humble.

Fruit of the Spirit Ideas from Readers:

My daughters were having a hard time (as we all do sometimes) exercising the Fruit of the Spirit. I printed off some fruit pictures and printed a Fruit of the Spirit on each one of the fruit. I then found a basket picture in a clipart program of mine and attached a small magnet to the back of it and to each of the fruit pieces and stuck it on my refrigerator. As my children exemplified a certain fruit during the day, I told them they could go to the refrigerator and place that fruit in their basket (They each had their name printed on their basket.) The goal was to see who could fill up their basket during the day. It worked very well ! Kerrie Wade
