Suggested Activities:

• Bible:
- Special Times with God  For next few weeks, the child will learn about special times with God.  Collect all of the activities and crafts to form a "Special Times with God" book.  At the end of the study, a cover worksheet will be provided to bind the pages together. 

- The Bible is God's Word and He gave it to us so that we can learn about Him and His love for us.  One way we can spend time with God is reading the Bible. During Bible time this week, read the child's favorite Bible stories. 

- With a jumbo paint brush, paint with water the Bible worksheet.

- Candle Bobble Head Create a Candle Bobble Head by cutting out the Candle worksheet.  Separate the candle and the light and either color or use as a template to cut out each piece on colored paper.  Cover a toilet paper roll with white paper.  Glue the candle to the roll.  Fold a long black pipecleaner in half and stick it inside a toilet paper roll.  Tape the light of the candle to one end.   Fold the other end of the pipecleaner into the roll.  When you wiggle the candle the light should "bobble."  Use this craft while singing "This Little Light of Mine."  Let the child blow the light during the verse "Don't let Satan blow it out...."
- God's Word is a "lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Ps. 119:105).  Because we do not know what is right and we do not know what is ahead, we need God's Word to tell us what to do.  To illustrate this, at night turn off all of the lights.  Try to walk around the house and dramatically run into objects.  Half way through turn on a flashlight and discuss how it illuminates objects so you know what path to take.  Explains how God's Word is like a flashlight.
