Duct or masking tape
What You Do
Make a large circle on the floor. Invite your child to stand outside the circle and explain that the circle is empty. Then, tell your child that the two of you are going to jump in the circle and make it full. Repeat several times.
Say, “Look at our circle! It’s EMPTY! Let’s jump into the circle to make it FULL! Great job! Tell me, Who is good? God is good! Yes, He is. Okay, jump back out of the circle. Now, the circle is empty. Let’s jump into the circle. We made the circle full again. Who is good? God is good! Let’s do it again.
“Great job! First, it was empty, then the circle was FULL! Just like in our Bible story today! What was empty in our Bible story? Yes, the woman’s jars were empty, but Someone filled them up. Who was it? Yes, God filled the jars and made sure they all had something to eat. God is good. Who is good? God is good!”
(Note: If you do not have tape, you can use many things to create the circle on the floor—pillows, stuffed animals, a hula hoop, etc.)
“Dear God, food is a really big part of our lives because eating is something we do every day. I pray that every time we see food, we will remember to thank You for it because it’s such a good gift. Thank You for foods like (list the family’s favorite foods). We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
