HOW DOES IT WORK?
WAYS TO USE WTTB®
Colors Flash Cards are a great tool for teaching colors 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.
Explain that just as we like to celebrate our friends on their birthdays, God loves to celebrate us for who he created us to be. He likes to rejoice over us for the unique purposes we each have. As they cover their hats with colors, shapes, and sparkles, explain how God covers them with celebration and promises too.
For this activity you will need the Identity Statements Flash Cards, plastic sandwich zipper bags, damp paper towels, bean seeds (like lima beans or green beans), and an already sprouted seed or plant (or even a picture of one).
Through this exercise the children will learn the character and identity that God has knitted inside each of them—who they truly are—just waiting to be illuminated by His Spirit through them as they trust and believe in Him.
This game will not only remind the children of God’s promises and the identity that He has given them through a fun game, but it will also help to build their abilities to listen for a direction and quickly obey, with positive memories and truths about themselves and God associated with that exercise.
This is a great way to utilize even snack or meal time as a demonstration of the Father’s heart over them, and to recognize their identity as part of God’s big family!
This exercise will give the children an opportunity to learn how to serve and be helpful to those in need, as well as learn who it is that God says they are, no matter their age or current ability!
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!
Through this exercise the children will learn about their colors, as well as the Biblical meaning and symbolism of the colors. In addition, they will learn more about their Identity of who God has made them to be, and who He will help them to grow into by His love for them.
Through this activity, the children will gain a better understanding of Jesus’ role as King and Lord of their lives, and who they are to Him.
Through this activity the children will learn not only the Truth about them and their God, and associate that with positive memories, but also they will learn to go and find out the Truth of who they are and Who their God is!
Using the Father’s Blessing Wall Hanging, and a baby doll, explain to the children that our God is a God of Blessing!
Start by explaining to them that the Word of God has the power to transform us into amazing, victorious, Godly men and women!
To begin, first ask the children who God is. For example, “Do you know who your Father God is?” Wait for the responses of the children—they will definitely surprise you!
Using the Trust Flash Cards, explain to the children that we must trust God and His ways, and we must also be trustworthy as we follow Him!
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 the set of Wall Scriptures, and a special mat, platform, or step to represent a stage, have the children one by one come up and stand “on stage” to act out one of the Scriptures from the Wall Scriptures set, to demonstrate to the other children.
In this exercise the children will not only learn what each of the parts of their body were designed to do, but also that they are a part of a community of people who have the privilege of using their bodies in this way!
This exercise will reinforce to the children who their Father God is, how He hears their prayers, how all good things come from Him, and how He delights in meeting all their needs.
Using the Identity Statement Flash Card set and a mirror, have the children one by one look into the mirror and repeat after you a statement from a flash card.
Using the Color Flash Cards, have the children go on a seek and find mission to discover all the items in the space of the color you call out from the flash card. Once the children point out all the items they can find of that color, read the flash card and have them...
Using the Trinity Flash Cards and your favorite kids' worship songs, have the kids dance to the music! Then, pause the music, have all the kids freeze, and say the title of the flash card followed by one the of attributes of that member of the Trinity, having the...
The exercise will help to solidify to the truth of who each child is and the blessings or treasures of God that they carry inside of them, just waiting to be released!
Using the Protection, Safety, and Identity Flash Cards and a bottle of bubbles, have the children learn to capture Godly thoughts!
My Body Flash Cards are a great tool for interactive teaching while speaking truth into a child’s life at the same time!
Using a cape (could also use a small blanket, sweatshirt, or cloth tied around their shoulders or tucked into the back of their shirt collar), a flashlight, and the Kingdom Destiny Flash Cards, give each child the opportunity to be a superhero to help the other children in need.
Using the Father’s Blessing Prayer Card, a paper or toy crown (which you can have the children make ahead of time for fun), and some stickers, speak the Father’s Blessing Prayer over each child one by one.
Using the Identity Matching Cards, hand each card out to each of the children. Then, have them each take a turn discovering who they are by having them step up to the front of the room and announce what is on their card to everyone (repeating after you). For example, “I am Full of Faith,” “I am full of Joy!” Then have everyone in the room cheer after their announcement!
Using the Trust Flash Cards, set up an area of the room either using a soft mat, pillows, bean bag chair, or something similar. Have the children one at at time leap onto the area while everyone applauds and celebrates their leap. Then read one of the Trust Flash Cards aloud and have that child repeat after you.
Using the God’s Creation Flash Cards and several colors of modeling clay, have your little ones make their own creations based on each of the animals listed in the flash cards. As you select a card for your little ones to make their creations, read aloud the life-giving truth associated with that card and have them repeat after you.
Using the Identity Matching cards, speak each identity statement over the child or group of children, have them repeat it, and then ask the question, “What does a ____ do?” For example, using the Identity Statement, “I am a leader” or “I am a giver,” after the child repeats the identity statement, ask them, “What does a leader do?” or “What does a giver do?”
The words we speak and the words we allow to attach to or “label” our identities are powerful in affecting how we live our lives. The only words that should characterize our identities in Christ are words of Kingdom qualities and truth.
