Activity: carry me

What you need:
Towel or blanket and a plush friend

What you do:
Lay the towel or blanket on the floor and place a stuffed friend in the middle of it. Invite your child to pick up an end/corner of the towel and help you carry the plush friend around the room.

 What to say:

“Today in our Bible story, we heard about four friends who helped their friend who couldn’t walk see Jesus! They carried him! WOW! What sweet friends they were! Let’s pretend that we’re in our Bible story. Let’s carry our stuffed friends just like the four friends did! (Do activity.)

“Great job. Remind me, how many friends carried the man in our story? Yes, four. That’s right! And, they even went on the roof to get their friend to Jesus. Jesus helped the man walk again! The friends knew that Jesus could help him, and He did! Jesus is amazing! Who is amazing? Jesus is amazing!”

Prayer

“Dear God, thank You for (child’s name). I know You have a plan for them, because you love them. I pray they will always trust that You have a plan for them. And when hard things happen, help them to wait on You, do the right thing, and trust in Your plan for them. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
