God Made Me Bible Lesson 7

Lesson 7 - My Happy Heart

 

God created us to do good things. He made us to glorify him and he wants us to have a happy heart. We can be happy when we make God our Lord, obey him, pray, and give thanks. (A complete lesson is available to members only on The Resource Room.)

2. If you have younger children, glue the heart pattern onto a piece of construction paper and let them glue fun foam shapes on the background.

3. If you have older children, they may want to make a 3D picture. Have them cut on the heart shape starting at the bottom of the page. When they have cut out the whole heart shape, turn the page over and tape the bottom cut edge closed. Then glue the page onto a piece of construction paper around the edges. Do not glue the heart shape down.

4. Glue little squares or rolled up paper to the back of the heart in the middle of the picture and to the construction paper behind it so that the middle heart stands about a half an inch above the construction paper background.

Drawing

After talking about idioms (From the "Fun With Letters and Words" section) have your children pick one of the idioms and draw a picture using the literal meaning and the implied meaning of the idiom. For example, if the child picks "broken hearted", he may draw a picture of a heart broken into many pieces and a picture of someone very sad.
