Silhouettes for Mother's Day

Silhouettes for Mother’s Day

 Colossians 3:20  Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. 

  • Camera
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Colored paper
  • Glue Stick
  • Crayons or markers
  • Ink pad or finger paints

This is an old idea that will make the mothers of your students happy.  It takes a little work on your part, but the rewards are worth it. 
Have the child stand sideways next to a blank wall.  The more contrast, the better this works.  Snap a photo and print it out on plain paper.  Just a black and white copy is all you need.  Trim off the outer edges, leaving only the outline of the child and a little extra.  Tape the picture to a piece of colored construction paper or card stock.  (I used black and white to be traditional, but any color will work.)  Cut around the outline of the child’s head and neck.  Carefully place the cutout on a contrasting piece of paper and glue it down.  Those who are older can do these last steps, but you will need to assist younger students.
Now, to let the child get creative have him or her draw flower stems and top it off with finger print flowers as a border.  It can be as simple as using single finger prints for tulips or more involved such as a cluster of prints in a circle for a daisy. You could have the students work on this while you are busy cutting out those silhouettes.

Lot's Wife Turned Into A Pillar Of Salt KJV Printout Sheet Gen 19:14-29

 Genesis 19:14  And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

Genesis 19:15  And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

Genesis 19:16  And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

Genesis 19:17  And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

Genesis 19:18  And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:

Genesis 19:19  Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

Genesis 19:20  Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

Genesis 19:21  And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

Genesis 19:22  Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

Genesis 19:23  The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

Genesis 19:24  Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Genesis 19:25  And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

Genesis 19:26  But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Genesis 19:27  And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:

Genesis 19:28  And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

Genesis 19:29  And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

Bible Wheel Of Fortune Game and Cake

Bible Wheel Of Fortune Game

Bible Wheel Of Fortune Spinner-printable version
Bible Wheel of Fortune Template for front of box-printable version
Decorative Scissors
Small Cardboard Box
Brown Spray Paint
2 Pieces of Red Construction paper
Brad-for your spinner

Making the box is totally optional. You could always just skip that part and just print the template out and make a small spinner for the kids to use. I was actually going to do that until I got some remarks from my child that I need to make it better than that. Got to love your kids!!! So I went back to the drawing table and was trying to figure out what I could use. I decided to use a small cardboard box that we've had crammed next to the freezer forever because my lovely husband likes to cram things into every nook and cranny in this place. hee hee.
I went out to my husband's shop and rooted around for some spray paint. I began to notice that my children had gotten into all the spray paint and used it up. And even better, the spray nozzles were missing off of everyone of them. After some looking I finally found some brown spray paint. Out into the yard I went and sprayed the box. I just sprayed the front and top. I left the sides and back white. I let it dry for a little bit and then took it inside. I grabbed 2 pieces of red construction paper and taped it to the top and front of the box. I printed out the Bible Wheel of Fortune template for the front of the box and used decorative scissors to cut around it. I taped that on top of the red construction paper on the front of the box. Then I printed out the wheel spinner and cut it out. I laminated the wheel and the arrow. I put a brad through the arrow, wheel and box. I just used a push pin to make my hole first and then pushed the brad through it.
*If you are not able to laminate, then try gluing or taping the template to a round cutout piece of cardboard. You might want to make the spinner out of cardboard too if you go that route.
Pick out several scriptures from the Bible and write them on note cards so that way you have them. They will represent the different rounds.

If you have a large white marker board just write your dashes on the board for the scripture. 

Split the kids into two teams. Then pick who will go first. Have the child spin the spinner. If it lands on a number then let them guess a letter. If the letter is part of the puzzle then write it on board on top of the blank. Let's say the spinner landed on $500 and they guessed an M and there was 3 M's in the puzzle then they would get $15,000.
If they guess a vowel then it will cost them $100 every time they want to use it. The team will continue to spin the wheel and guess the letters until they have missed one or solved the puzzle. When they missed one then it is the other teams turn. The game will continue on until the puzzle is solved. This is really good for kids to learn Bible verses or to review on lessons that you have previously taught. 

You could make a Bible Wheel of Fortune cake too!

Bible Wheel of Fortune Cake 

Small Round Cake Pan
Bible Wheel of Fortune Template
White Frosting
Cake Mix

Just bake a cake in a small round pan and let it cool down. Ice the cake in white frosting. Print the Bible Wheel of Fortune template off. Cut it out and laminate it. Lay the wheel down on top of the cake. Then take some toothpicks or you could use pretzel sticks and stick down in the edge of cake all around for the metal spikes. This is just an easy way to make this cake. If you really want to get all out there then you could attempt the real deal by piping all that mess on there. hahahah I thought I would skip on that for today. I was not up for that. I seen some pretty cool cakes that people made of these and they actually iced all of the wheel on top. I even seen one that actually spun. Once again I was not up for all that. You might want to take the cake out of the cake pan and finish icing the cake. I just left mine in the cake pan because I felt like it... :)
(In case if you haven't noticed, I really like my laminator I got from Wal-mart. I use it a lot throughout this website. I like to laminate everything!)

Make this for a fun snack for the kids at church. Play the Bible Wheel of Fortune Game with them to help them get excited about learning scriptures.

Mother's Day Matching Game

Mother's Day Medallion Flowers

Mother’s Day Medallion Flowers
 Isa 66:13:  “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem."

  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayons or markers
  • Craft stick or bamboo skewers

You can use colored paper or if you have time use white paper and let the children color.  From one sheet of paper, cut as many 2 inch circles as you need.  It takes two circles for each medallion. Have the children draw a picture of the person that will receive the medallion on one circle.  On the other circle write the words, ‘Jesus and I love you.’
Take another sheet of paper and fold it in half the long way.  Fold it in half the long way again so you have four long sections.  Cut the paper apart along the folds.  One sheet makes four medallions.  For each medallion, make accordion folds in one strip.  Cut half inch slits along the edge in the crease of each fold.  Bring the short ends together and glue the edges.  Gently flatten the medallion.  This took some practice, but you will get it.  Using plenty of glue, stick one circle in the center of the medallion on one side.  Hold it down a few seconds to be sure it sticks well.  Turn the medallion over.  Depending on the age of the child, layer a craft stick or a bamboo skewer between the medallion and the other circle.  Once again use plenty of glue. 
Tell the children to give the medallion to their mother or a woman they love with a big hug.
Optional:  Fold the fringed edge back and forth to make it more three dimensional.  Use craft foam for the circles.  Add a little glitter to make it sparkle. Add a two inch circle punch to your wish list.
