Twinkie Snacks For Kids




  Twinkie Snacks For Kids

TWINKIE
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
