What You Need
Blue towel and pink towel (Any colors will work, you just need to tell your child which represents water and which represents perfume.)
What You Do
Lay the towels on a rug or carpeted floor so they won’t slip when it’s jumped on.
Ask your child to jump from towel to towel. The blue towel is washing their feet and the pink towel is the perfume. Continue as long as they’re is interest.
Say, “We can act out our Bible story today. We can wash our feet just like in the story. First, step on the blue towel. The woman washed Jesus’ feet with her tears. Then, what did she pour on His feet? Yes, she she poured perfume on His feet. Jump on the pink towel. It’s the perfume. Let’s do it again! First wash your feet on the blue towel, then put perfume on your feet by jumping to the pink towel! Great job! Let’s do it again!
“That was so much fun! The woman was so thankful that Jesus loved her, no matter what! He loves us, no matter what, too! Who loves you? Jesus loves me!”
“Dear God, thank You for sending Jesus to love us, no matter what. Thank You that He is the kind of friend who forgives us every time and will never, ever stop loving us. Every person in the world has made wrong choices, and we all need Jesus to forgive us. I pray (name of child) will always talk to You about their choices and trust that Jesus loves them, no matter what. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
