Activity: TRAVELING MEMORY VERSE
What you need:
What you do:
Review the memory verse with your child using the motions once. Give them a paper plate and demonstrate how to hold the plate in front of you like a steering wheel. “Drive” around your home as you repeat the memory verse together.
What to say:
“We’re learning an awesome verse from the Bible this month to remind us that God loves me and that God’s got it. Let’s say it with our motions, too.
“God (point both hands straight up)
is with you (point out to a friend)
wherever (wave hands in a circle)
you go, (march in place)
Joshua 1:9.” (Open your hands like a book.)
“Is God with us at home? Yes! Is God with us when we travel? Of course! I have these steering wheels here. I want you to hold your steering wheel up like this (demonstrate), and we’ll drive around as we say the verse together. Let’s get in a line and drive together so our cars don’t bump into each other. We don’t want to have any car crashes!
“That was a fun drive! Let’s park our cars by having a seat right where you are. I’m so glad for this important truth that ‘God is with you wherever you go!’ Knowing this helps me remember that God’s got it. Who’s got it? God’s got it.”
“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.”
