The children's parents should write words describing their child's behavior on pieces of paper and place them in the cup each night. If a bad word goes into the cup, they should pray about it with their child and ask God to help them not do that the next day. If the child is successful, he can take the word out the next night.

Pharisee Sunday School Activities

 

"What's in Your Cup?" Activity Sheet

The Pharisees did everything for show. Jesus said, "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

For this activity children decide which words should go inside the cup and which should stay out. They cut apart the words and decide if they should be glued to the inside of the cup or left out.

"What's in Your Cup?" Game

What you will need: Cup and ping-pong balls

Preparation:

1. Before class print a bunch of words on pieces of paper and place them in a large cup. Use words that describe things we don't want in our hearts and things that we do.

Printable patterns are available to members and as an instant download above.

How to Play:

1. In class have the children take turning trying to throw a ping-pong ball into the cup from a short distance away.

2. If a child gets the ping-pong ball in the cup, he gets to pull out a word. Read the word for him and ask him if that is something Jesus would want us to have in our hearts. If it is, he gets to keep the word. The child with the most words at the end of the game wins.
