Activity: Sock Match
What you need:
Six (or more) pairs of socks in different colors
What you do:
Place one of each pair of socks around the room. Place the other socks in a pile in the middle of the room. Pick up one sock out of the pile and ask your child to find the match and bring it to you. Place the pair together. Pick up a second sock and repeat. Continue until all of the socks are matched.
What you say:
“Oh no! All of these socks have lost their match. I need your help! Can you help me find the matches? (Hold up one sock.) Look at this sock. Look around the room and see if you can find the match.
“You all are so good at helping! Today we learned about a lady named Tabitha. She loved God and helped by making clothes for people who needed them. God made us to help. It doesn’t matter if we are a grown-up or a kid, we can help. God made you and loves you so much. Who made you? God made me.”
“Dear God, thank You for sending Jesus to love us, no matter what. Sometimes, we mess up and we don’t even mean to do it. Other times, we choose to do the wrong thing, and we’re sorry for that. We are so thankful to have a friend like Jesus who will never stop loving us. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
