What you need:
Low step stool or small sturdy box
What you do:
Place the stool or box in various areas around your home. Stand with your child as they step on the stool or box and shout, “Jesus wants to be my friend forever!” Then, you take a turn too. Everyone in the family can participate.
What to say:
“In today’s story, we learned that Jesus wants everyone, everywhere to know that He loves them and wants to be their friend forever.
“Let’s take turns standing on the stool and shouting Jesus wants to be my friend forever! Let’s practice telling everyone all about Jesus! We can start in the kitchen. Then, we can go in your room and practice too. (Do activity.)
“That was so much fun! Jesus wants us to do an important job and tell everyone all about Him. Who wants to be your friend forever? Jesus wants to be my friend forever.”
“Dear God, Jesus really is amazing! He did so many amazing things while He was on Earth, so we know that He is Your Son. And, the thought that Jesus is alive today and wants to be our friend forever is the best news ever! Thank You, God! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
