Member's Treasure Map Craft and Activity Pattern

Children will enjoy making paper look old that they can use to make a treasure map at home.

1. Before class soak tea bags in warm water.

2. In class give each child a sheet of white construction paper or typing paper. Show them how to tear the sides and make little rips to make the paper look worn.

3. Have them wrinkle up the paper and then straighten it out.

4. Show them how to use the tea bags to paint over the paper by squeezing the bags and rubbing them over the paper. Set the papers aside to dry.

What Do You Treasure? Survey Printable

What do You Tresasure Survey for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.com

Do you treasure these things: fear of the Lord, wisdom, knowledge, God's commandments, His word? Let's take a "test" and see what it reveals about what we treasure.

Provide students with a copy of "What Do You Treasure?" Students may need help in adding up their score.

Member's What Do You Treasure Pattern

Students may feel they have failed to make Jesus their treasure. This is an opportune moment to ask students if they want to make Jesus their Number One Treasure.

Be prepared to follow through with each child who wants to make a commitment to the Lord.

You can make these maps look really old by following the directions in the craft section below. You will have to make photocopies of the pattern if you are using an ink jet printer. The ink from an ink jet printer will run and smear if you get it wet. Or you can buy paper at your local office supply store with a pattern printed on it that makes it look old.

If you have children who are just beginning to read, help them find the verses and the treasures found in each verse. You can group older students into groups of two or three. One child can look up the verses while another cuts out the gem shapes, and another writes down the treasures on the gem shapes to place in the treasure chest. You can prepare the treasure chests before class by cutting a slit in the top of the chest. Glue the chest picture to another sheet of paper and glue around the chest. Don't glue where the treasure should be inserted.
