Snowman Coloring Sheet

Children color the snowman coloring sheet and talk about the meaning of the verse.

(The Coloring Sheet is available to members only on The Resource Room.)

 

I teach a class on Wednesday nights, ages 4, 5, and 6. We did the Snowman/Dust man and made the cup snowmen. The children loved it. We pretended to build a snowman and the children really got into the acting and one child even pretended to drop their snowball and had to roll it all over again. It was funny and cute. One child lost their pom pom nose off their snowman and according to the parent, was reallly upset, but he got another. These lessons are aboslutely wonderful. Every one of them that I have done, the children really get into and really learn. Thank you so much. This is the second or third year I have subscribed to your site and it has been sooo worth it. Thank you so much and may God bless you abundantly. :-) 10/15/12

 

 

Make a Big Paper Snowman with Poem

snowman guess who www.daniellesplace.com

Before class print out the pattern pages and make copies. In class have your children color the patterns, cut them out, and glue them together. If you have younger children, cut out the patterns before class and just have them color and glue the picture together. To make it even easier have your children glue the shapes onto a large piece of construction paper. Have them cut arm shapes from brown construction paper. (A Pattern is available to members only on The Resource Room.)

Guess Who!

I made this big snowman out of paper and glue.
It may not look like much from your point of view,
But it reminds me of a man that was made too.
Do you think you can guess who? I'll give you a clue.
God made the man from the dust, brand new.
On the sixth day of creation he made his debut.
If you consider my snowman, there's not much he can do,
But this dust man came alive when in his mouth God blew.
God gave him the animals and the whole world to subdue.
He was amazing and special just like me and you.
Now do you think you know who? I bet you do.

short and stout snowman www.daniellesplace.com

God's Dust man
Written by Carolyn Warvel
(Sing to the tune of "I'm a Little Tea Pot")

I made this little snowman, short and stout.
God made a dust man, there is no doubt.
That makes me so excited, I could shout.
Pick up your snowman and move him about.

God made a clever dust man, yes it's true.
He gave him the earth for him to subdue.
That makes me so excited, I could shout.
Pick up your snowman and move him about.

God didn't want his dust man to be alone.
He made him a wife from his rib bone
That makes me so excited, I could shout.
Pick up your snowman and move him about.

When God made his dust man, he thought of you.
God's great creation, we can't outdo!
That makes me so excited, I could shout.
Pick up your snowman and move him about.

Build a Snowman Bible Verse Review Game

Build a Snowman Bible Verse Review Game from www.daniellesplace.com

Before class cut the snowman parts from construction paper. In class go over the verse several times with your children.

When you think they might be able to repeat it pick a child to say the verse. If he can say it without making a mistake, he gets to put part of the snowman together. If he makes a mistake, correct him, and ask another child to try. Keep playing until the whole snowman is put together.

(A Pattern is available to members only.)

 

 

 

 

Find the Snack Game

Before class make two Cup Snowmen Puppets. At snack time place a snack underneath one of the snowmen while your children are not looking. Ask one of your children to guess which snowman the snack is hidden under. If the child guesses correctly, he gets the snack. If he doesn't guess correctly, he must wait until his turn comes around again to guess. Keep playing until all the children have had snack.

You can find a complete lesson on The Resource Room including crafts, printable Bible Verse card, activity ideas, songs and more.

 

 

Make Gingerbread Man Cookies and Have the Children Decorate Them to Look Like Themselves.

Have the children decorate cookies using tubes of frosting in different colors, and candy such as M&M’s, licorice, chocolate chips, skittles, etc. Encourage them to make them look like themselves. Admire their creations and discuss how unique and wonderfully made each child is.

 

 

Make Life-Size Self-Portraits

Tape big pieces of butcher paper (paper used to cover bulletin boards) about 2 feet wide, one next to the other, on the wall. Before class write the scripture verse “I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” Psalm 139:14, on each sheet of paper. Have each child stand in front of the paper and outline his or her body onto the paper and then let them color it. When they are finished roll them up and tape them closed so they can take them home.

 

 

Song for Creation

God Made Me
(Tune of The Farmer in the Dell)

Slap your thighs and clap your hands as you sing it.
God made me, God made me, God made everything and God made me. (Go around the room and use each child's name.) God made Dustin, God made Dustin, God made everything and God made Dustin.
Then have them tell you something they do well and sing the song again.
God made me a helper, God made me a helper, God made everything and God made me a helper.

Children love songs that have their name in them or something about them. They love the attention, it connects the concept or lesson to them, and they pay attention better because they are a part of what is going on. This idea was sent in by Narita Roady

I CANNOT begin to thank you for the treasure trove of information here. I am the Children’s Minister at our small church, and I teach every week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Without your website, I know I would be struggling to find material because of our limited budget at the church. Thank you, thank you, thank you for what you have done for so many of us teachers out there!! The children love the lessons, crafts, games and activities we do each week from this website. We have been doing the fruits of the spirit series, and it has amazed me what they remember when we review each week. May God bless you immensely!! Lori, Maryville, TN 10/20/2011
