YOU CAN DO IT!
Using the Numbers Flash Cards, and a variety of shaping materials like assorted color pipe cleaners, have the children learn to “draw” their numbers! Explain to the children that God is Real and seen in everything He has made, and that He made everything for a purpose! Then show them that we are going to use the pipe cleaners (sculpting materials) of their choosing to build our numbers.
You can start by asking them, “Did you know that God has a purpose for each number?” Then tell them, “Even through our numbers we can discover more about our God and even about who He has made us to be!” Then starting with the first number in the flash cards, show them the flash card and read the statements below the number— you can even have them repeat after you. Then ask them to individually build or shape that number. They can use one or a variety of colors to do it. They can even twist the pipe cleaners together…but most importantly, it’s their opportunity to try their best to figure it out! You can give tips to the children as they work if they have questions.
When they’ve finished making the number, have everyone hold up their creations to show their work! Then, repeat the process with the next number. They can either unravel their creations to begin the next number, or get more materials to continue.
Through this exercise, the children will not only discover more about their God through all that He has made—including our numbers—but they will also learn their numbers and how to “draw” them, creatively! This is a great sensory activity that will also help develop fine motor skills for young ones.
Numbers Flash Cards are a set of 10 colorful flash cards each featuring a different number (1-10). Each card has a prophetic meaning for the featured number as well as corresponding life-giving truths. Numbers Flash Cards are a great tool for teaching numbers while speaking truth into a child’s life at the same time! Cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on a digital device.

I had quite the funny experience with my three-year-old yesterday and I thought surely there is a blog for this moment. This morning when I woke up, I asked Holy Spirit what the title of the article should be, and I immediately heard, “what goes in must come out!” I burst into laughter thinking “very funny Jesus,” as the experience that I am about to share with you has to do with potty training. With 18-month-old twins and a baby on the way, I have been quite determined to make sure our oldest, Judah—who just turned 3—is fully potty trained before our little princess gets here. (Because let’s be honest FOUR children in diapers at once is A LOT!!!) Judah has done a great job in his learning process and has really been receptive to the reward system that we have used as a motivator. However, we have been facing the hurdle of getting him to go “big potty” (number two) on the toilet.
Throughout over 30 years of ministering identity and destiny to children, we have put together many prayers, identity statements, and tools to empower and speak truth into precious young lives. Here we have the privilege of being able to offer some of these resources just for YOU to minister life in your very own home.
Through this simple, but powerful lesson plan, teach your children the authority that they have over the enemy and how they have the power to choose what they will allow to affect their heart and soul.
