Twinkie Snacks For Kids

  Twinkie Snacks For Kids

The Word Instills Necessary Keys In Everyone 

 Take a look at this little twinkie. He has his little Bible opened up to his favorite scripture. It's Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever. Twinkies are like a sponge cake that is made at a factory and is filled with cream filling. 

We need to be like a little twinkie. We need to be filled with the word of God because it will instill necessary keys in us that we need. The word of God is alive and we need it to fill us up. We need Jesus to consume our lives. The more we read, the more we get filled with the stuff we need!

I sat for a long time trying to figure out a saying that could go with the word TWINKIE and came up with this, "The Word Instills Necessary Keys In Everyone". Just let the kids know that the word of God is very necessary. We have to get it in us. God wants to fill us with his Holy Spirit, and he wants us to have all the spiritual gifts that he offers. He has many things laid up for us if we would just seek him for it. 

But more than anything he wants a relationship. When you begin to seek God for his friendship you will find yourself overflowed in many things from him. 

Don't be scared to seek him. He will divide to every  man severally as he will.

 1 Corinthians 12:4  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:5  And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

1 Corinthians 12:6  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

1 Corinthians 12:7  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:8  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:9  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:10  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1 Corinthians 12:11  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

  • Twinkies or Cloud Cakes
  • Captain Crunch Cereal or Berry Colossal Crunch- for arms, legs and eyes
  • 4 Toothpicks per twinkie 
  • Green Construction Paper
  • Pen (to write the scripture down)
  • Decorative Cutting Scissors
  • Pink Frosting- to make a smile

 Lay your twinkie cake down on a pan covered in foil. Now let's take some captain crunch cereal or the Berry Colossal Crunch and stick 6 square cereals on the toothpick. Make four of these. This will be the arms and legs. Once you are done insert the Cereal arms and legs into the twinkie. You will have enough of the toothpick still sticking out to stick into the twinkie. 

Now take two colored berries from the cereal bag and use these for eyes. Add a little of your pink frosting to the back of the round colored cereals and stick on the twinkie for eyes. Add a pink frosting smile mouth. 

Next take your decorative cutting scissors and cut a square out and bend it in half a little so it will make a crease. Take your pen and draw a wavy line all around the bible. Add a long recatangle in the middle to represent the middle of the Bible. On the right side of the little bible write down the scripture- Hebrews 13:8- Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever. On the left hand side of the little Bible write 5 wavy squiggle lines down the paper. This will look like more words written down the paper without actually having to write anything else.  Now lay the little paper bible at the top of the twinkie you made. This will look like Mr. Twinkie is holding his bible up. 

You can make one of these for all the kids or you can do what I did. I only made up 6 of these twinkie men because they were actually a lot of work. I also had regular twinkies that were still in the wrappers and just took those to church with me. All the kids got a twinkie but we did a number drawing to see who would get the twinkie men.  (Just make sure you tell the kids to not eat the toothpicks)

If you don't want the kids to eat sweets and you think this might sugar them up to much then try  using a corn dog and french fries. Just pull the stick out of the middle of the corn dog and then take your crinkle fries and stick them on a toothpick and stick in corndog. For eyes just use mustard or ketchup! :) I am so smart, huh! lol

Fall Scarecrow Bulletin Board Idea

Fall Scarecrow "God's Pumpkin Patch"
Bulletin Board Idea For Sunday School

Fall Leaves Border
Jumbo Fall Leaves Classroom Cutouts
Orange Letters
Jumbo Pumpkin Classroom Cutouts
Stuffed Scarecrow
1 Small Scarecrow
1 Small Bible To Staple to little Scarecrow (made from jello box)
Fall Pumpkin and Squash and Fruit Set
Pumpkin Tissue Decorations (To add to the ceiling)

I did not cover the bulletin board in any paper. I just left it brown because it blended well for the fall look. I covered the bulletin board in some fall leaves border. I just stapled that all around the board. Then I added some very large pumpkins at the bottom of the board and stapled those on.

 I stapled large leaves all over the board. Then I stapled the fruit and squash set at bottom and scatted the apples, and corn all around the board too.  I also bought a large scarecrow that you have to stuff yourself and stapled that to the center of the board.

  I added a small scarecrow in the upper right hand corner. I bought that from Walmart and then I added a small bible in it's hand. I made that by using an empty jello box. I just covered a small jello box with white paper and wrote the word "Bible" on the front.

I also hung Pumpkin tissue decorations all along the top above the bulletin board close to the ceiling. Most stuff was bought through Oriental Trading.

Acorn With Bible Snack For Kids

Acorn With Bible Snack For Kids In Sunday School
"Me And Jesus Are Nutty Buddies"

  • Peanut Butter
  • Butter Knife
  • Crushed Nuts- any kind
  • Black Gel Writing Frosting
  • Bell Cookie Cutter
  • Present Cookie Cutter
  • 1 Slice of Bread

Your going to take your bell cookie cutter and cut a bell shape out of 1 slice of bread. This will leave s very small tiny amount of bread all the way around. I used the leftover on this to cut the little Bible out. I used the corner of the bread and pressed the present cookie cutter into the side of the corner of the bread to get what you see above. It is almost square but not really. I just didn't want to waste bread.

Take your peanut butter and smear it all over the bell shaped bread cutout and square bread cutout. Turn your bell upside down and it will look like an acorn. You are going to take some crushed nuts of any kind and just sprinkle it on the bottom of the bell. But this will actually be the top... Add 2 large pieces of crushed nuts for the eyes and mouth.

Take a black frosting writer pen and write the word BIBLE on the small square you cut out. Use this fun little snack to go along with our Acorn Lesson Plan. These would make great fall snacks for the kids in Children's church.

This is a fun little activity for the kids to do in Sunday school class or children's Church. Just have them color the picture and then cut the tree and acorns out. Have them piece the tree together and glue down on colored paper. Then have them glue the acorns on the tree.
