Sunday School Whiteboard Drawings

 A major part of my (very busy) life is children's ministry.

I HEART Children's Ministry!!!!

I took some pictures with my phone last week of some of my Sunday school students and the drawings they made of the "Most Special Baby".

Drawing our pictures...

teacher drawing for inspiration ;)

I got the idea to incorporate individual whiteboards in this way from here.  She has some wonderful ideas!

I did not get a picture of all the drawings. I think some kids were faster with the eraser than I am with the camera.  Funny thing, at first they seemed intimidated to draw anything, that is why I drew the "inspiration" picture to get them going. Once they got started they didn't want to quit.

I bought an $11 dollar 4x8 shower board at Home Depot and had the guy there cut it for me. They have that amazing saw and it would be much quicker than doing it myself at home.  I had him cut 2 large ones cut and 12 smaller ones.  He said they usually charge .50 cents a cut after the first cut and I was willing to pay. He asked if I was a teacher and I told him that I homeschool and teach a class at church.  He didn't charge me anything!  So I only paid for the board. I was so excited!

I added felt to the back of one of the larger boards and used it for flannel figures.  I'm going to hang the other big one in CJ's room.  He really wants one!

I love whiteboards and I love children's ministry!

Gentleness Bible Lesson

"But the fruit of the Spirit is, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23a

Our children's Church has been doing a unit on the fruit of the Spirit.  Each week we learn one of the components on that list. This lesson is about gentleness.

Here is the story I adapted focusing on Jesus' gentleness.  As with all scripture there are many facets to each episode.  There are tons we can learn from them but when you teach children, consider the age and the maturity level of your kids. We are teaching 4-7 year olds and some of our 4 year olds are very "young".  So this story has been adapted, not changing scripture but just being wise about what information a young child needs to know.

In this passage we see Jesus being gentle with a sinful woman. There are several scriptures portraying Jesus as gentle.  You could choose any of them.  For this unit the curriculum outline we follow uses this passage, …

Sermon Notes Books for Kids and How to make an 8 page mini book.

I made these sermon notes books for our kids attending “big church” and they loved them.  You can get the original free file from here.

As I was cleaning out the quiet bags at church this week I decided to do something different and so I shrunk them down and made mini-books. 

I love little things and kids do too! I got the idea when my little 4-year old friend was visiting me.  She brought me a scrap sheet of paper and I quickly made it into a little 8-page mini book for her to draw in. She loved it! So that got me to thinking about our quiet bags and sermon notes. So I got busy reformatting the half-sheet books onto one sheet and here’s how the books look now.

Aren’t they cute?

The best thing is that they are made from only one sheet of paper.

Here’s my free mini-sermon notes printable.

I’ve used this mini-book template for years for so many different things!

Self-Control Bible Lesson

Thanks to the Kidologist and the Kidology Cookbook, I am able to quickly come up with different ways to tell a Bible story that are fun and easy to learn. If you stand in front of kids that are varied in ages with all kinds of varied attention spans and just talk, talk, talk; (I call it bobbing head) you aren't going to engage them for very long.  You'll have discipline problems for sure, but mostly they won't internalize what it is you want them to know.  
Here is a story I wrote, with help from a friend, for an upcoming lesson on self-control.
For this story, we are going to make an acrostic using each letter in the word "Self-Control". The focus is on Peter as he makes mistakes that he was sure he would not make.  But the good news is Jesus still loves him and forgives him even though he knew that Peter was going to mess up before it even happened. Isn't Jesus awesome! I thank Him today for doing the same for me! He died on that cross even though he knew th…
