Gifts of the Spirit Activities

 

1 Corinthians 12:28, 1 Corinthians13
Concepts: The greatest of these is Love.

 

Unwrap a Gift

1. Write the words "the greatest of these is love" on the outside of an envelope.

2. Place inside the envelope pieces of paper with the words that describe what love is in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. Write one word on each piece of paper: patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, it is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong, etc.

3. Place the pieces of paper inside the envelope. Place the envelope inside the box. Seal it and wrap up the box using ten layers of wrapping paper. On each layer write one gift of the Spirit.

4. Write the words wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, prophecy, distinguish between spirits, speaking in tongues, interpretation, helping others, and administration.

5. Play a game like musical chairs except have the children pass around the gift while playing some music. When the music stops let the child who is holding the gift unwrap one layer and read the word that shows after taking off the layer. Keep playing until someone gets to open the box. The child that gets to open the box should read the outside of the envelope and pass out the pieces of paper inside. When everyone has a piece of paper, have each child give an example of the words written on his piece of paper.

Giving - God Loves a Cheerful Giver

 

Are You a Sheep or a Goat? Sunday School Lesson with Giving Crafts

In this lesson children learn that we all have different personality types. Some of us are more like sheep, and would rather follow than lead, and some of us are more independent like goats and would rather be leaders, but when it comes to our relationship with God, we should be more like sheep. Many people say they love God, but their lives don't show it. They don't really follow Jesus. Jesus compares these people to goats. When Jesus returns he will separate the goats from the sheep (the people who truly love him), and only the sheep will inherit his kingdom. In this lesson children learn practical ways in which they can live their faith by following Jesus' example. This lesson is available to members only.

God Loves a Cheerful Giver, Giving to the Poor

Talk about things we can give: Money, clothes that we have out grown, old toys, our time, and our talents. Tell the children that they probably don't have money they can give because they are too young to have jobs. They probably don't even get an allowance yet. But there are other things they can give. They can give their time by helping others, and use their talents like drawing, singing, and making things for fund raisers.

They can keep their toys nice and when they out grow them or they are tired of them, they can give them to the poor or sell them and use the money to send to the poor.

They can help decorate a big barrel in which they can bring in things they can't use anymore or would like to give. You can make it a class project. Make sure the children know that they have to ask their parents first before they give something away. Save up the items and then have a garage sale. Let the children know how much they made and where the money was sent.

Snowflake Poem

Here's a great little poem to teach children about God's love. This poem was written by Carolyn White who is a member of the Children's Ministries Onelist. A place to exchange ideas dealing with children's ministries: bible crafts, play ideas, party plans, games, ways to involve children in the worship service AND exchange vacation bible school ideas. Anything to do with Christian kids is welcome! Thank you, Carolyn, for letting us post your poem.

Sunday School Snowflake Poem Bible Craft from www.daniellesplace.com"This is my snowflake, I made it myself.
If it were real, it would quickly melt.
It won't be around forever and ever,
But there is one thing that won't leave us, no, never.
It is God's Love for each of us all.
He will never leave us, He's there when we call.
So if I feel sad or just need a friend,
I can always turn to God, on Him I can depend."
by Carolyn White

What you will need: Paper and scissors.

 

How to make:

1. Print out a copy of the Snowflake and copy it onto different colors of paper. (Printing Problems?)

2. Cut out circles from white paper and have the children fold the paper in half and then in half again and show them how to cut snowflakes. If you don't remember how to make snowflakes you can go to the Winter Crafts Page for directions. If you don't want to make snowflakes you can use snowflake stickers or fun foam shapes.

Use the Circle Patterns to print circles on red and yellow paper cut to 8 1/2" x 11" so it fits in your printer. Or have your children color the circles in class. Print the "Go" Circle Pattern onto green paper. Or print them on white paper and have your children color the circles green. Cut rectangles the same size as the traffic light from black paper or have your children color them black. Printing Problems?

2. In class have your children glue the pieces on as you talk about The Great Commission.

3. Before gluing, explain that Jesus had spent many days with the disciples after He had risen from the dead. But the time came when He had to leave the earth because he needed to be with His Heavenly Father. Jesus blessed the disciples and told them that they needed to go out and tell others about Him. This is called The Great Commission. Read Matthew 28:19-20 from your Bible.

4. Explain that the stop light will remind us that Jesus wants us to tell others about him. Have your children glue the black rectangle on the traffic light pattern or color the rectangle.

5. Ask, "What color do you think we should use to remind us of The Great Commission?" Jesus said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations." What color represents "Go" on a traffic light? That's right, green represents "Go". Let's glue the green circle with the word "Go" on it at the top of the traffic light.

6. Ask the children what the red light on the traffic light represents. It mean you should stop. Let's glue the red circle on the traffic light. It will reminds us that we do not want to stop telling others the good news about Jesus.

7. What does the yellow light represent on the traffic signal? The yellow light means slow down. We don’t want to slow down, but be obedient to what God wants us to do.
Glue green circle: What about green? What does the green light mean? To go!. That’s what Jesus wants us to do: GO! We wants us to go and tell others about him.
