Our preschool co-op finished up a fruit of the Spirit series we did with the kids. If I can manage to find my notes, I’ll post on what we did for those lessons! It was fun.
Now we’re doing a bunch of Jesus stories with the kids. Is there anything better than that anyway? Nope.
Water Into Wine and Walking on Water
The first lesson was about turning the water into wine. The activity was fun. One of the moms took two pitchers – one clear and one opaque. There was water in the clear one and purple koolaid in the opaque one.
As she told the story she poured water into the opaque pitcher and wowed the kids as she poured it back into the clear one. Wine! OK… Koolaid. But the kids loved it and it illustrated the point well. If you try it, be aware you will be asked several times for the next few days whether the glass in your hand is wine. 🙂
Next we did Jesus walking on water. We read the story from a Children’s bible and had them do this craft, where they glued water and a boat onto a paper that had a slit in it for a Jesus puppet that could walk on the water.
The Jesus cutout was taped to a spoon (couldn’t find the popsicle sticks, but it worked out well) and stuck into a cup of blue jello (water) as a snack. We also gave them a little boat made of hard boiled eggs, toothpicks, and cheese, and scattered the plate with goldfish crackers.
