Forget-me-not Bible Verse Journal Craft

Bible Lesson Review - Flower Identification Activity Sheet
Print out the flower cards onto card stock, and cut them apart. Fold back the names so they can not be seen from the picture side. Show your children the cards one at a time and see if they can name the flowers. If they do not know the name of a flower, tell them what it is and point out its special features.
After you have gone over all the names of the flowers hand out the "What to do when you are sad?" sheet.
You can have the children work in teams or by themselves. Children write the first letter of each flower underneath the flower to spell out the word.
Answers: Pray, meditate, remember, talk, and praise.
Play "How Many Flowers Can you Name?" Game
Before class find pictures of flowers in magazines, catalogues, books, etc., cut them out and glue them to construction paper. Write the name of the flowers on the back of the sheets. In class hold up the pictures, one at a time, and see who can guess the name of the flower first. The child who guesses the most right wins.
1. Play Flower Alphabet - Break your children up into teams, and have each team pick a team leader who wants to write down the flower names. Have each team leader write the alphabet on a sheet of paper. Team members should then try to help think of names for each letter of the alphabet. The team who thinks of the most flowers after a certain time period wins.
