MADE TO BLESS
Using the Kingdom Character Flash Cards, and a variety of props such as blocks, dolls, modeling clay, crayons and paper, etc., tell the children that our friends need our help! Using a scenario you created (which can even be a real scenario your church is addressing—such as people without food, water, or shelter), describe simply to the children what the need is, at their level. Then say to them, “Let me tell each of you who Father God has created you to be.” Read one of the Kingdom Character Flash Cards over them, telling them that this is who they are! Then say, “Let’s ask Holy Spirit to help us to help these people, with good ideas!”
After praying with the children and inviting Holy Spirit to show them ways to bless the people in need (even allowing a short moment during the prayer for Holy Spirit to show them), ask the children to create their ideas using the props you provided. Some may draw, some may build with blocks, some may sculpt with clay, some may act it out with dolls, and others may want to talk it out first. You can go around to each of them encouraging them as they create and form their ideas. You can even have the children work together to create their ideas you’ve discussed as a group.
After some time of creating, read the Kingdom Character flash card again over them, reminding them of who God has made them to be, and then ask each of the children to share their idea and creation, and how it would help to meet the need, applauding for each one. Finally, pray and thank God for creating them to have that Kingdom Character trait and for helping them to have such good God-ideas!

This morning was a mix of play and work, cloudy faces and happy faces. In the middle of folding Sunday and Monday’s laundry with the little tots I wondered, ‘what did Eve struggle with as a Mom?’ The first mom ever. No other moms before her or around her to compare herself with. No endless approaches to sort through. No moms saying you ‘should’ this or that. She was the first. Was she a crunchy perfect organic mom? Or was she okay with peanut butter and jelly sandwich days for her boys? Did she struggle to respond instead of react? Did she get tired of telling her kids for the 99th time to ‘chew with your mouth closed’? Or did she just let that one slide? Did she struggle to make the choice to stay present some days? Did she ever snap and tell Adam, ‘I need a break?’
