WHAT YOU NEED:
Paper, marker, tape, scissors, blindfold/bandana
What You Do
Ask your child to draw an ice cream sundae on a sheet of paper. Tape it to a wall or cabinet. Then, ask your child to draw a bunch of large sprinkles, cut them out, and attach small tape loops to the back.
Blindfold your child, hand them a sprinkle with tape on it, and spin them around. See how many sprinkles your child can successfully land on the sundae. when they finish, count how many sprinkles they were able to land on the sundae.
Then play again, but this time, coach them and give them direction as they land the sprinkles. Count them again and see if they were able to get more sprinkles on the sundae with your help than without your help. Point out that both of you together were able to do more than just one of you by yourself.
Talk about the Bible Story
Our Bible story today was about how everyone can help in their own way,
by using what they’re good at. What happens when we work together? (We can get more done. We can make a greater difference.)
How can you use what you’re good at to make a difference? (Use what you know about your child to encourage them.)
What are some ways you can combine what YOU’RE good at together with other people? (School projects, church, helping the community)
Parent: Share about a time when you used your gifts together with other people. What did you learn about yourself?
