Family ACTIVITIES

 

Helping Hands

This week, we’re talking about hands so here are some ideas for conversation starters with the children.

How many different things can you think of that you can do with your hands?

Think about different ways your hands can become “helping hands”…

  • around your house

  • in your garden

  • around your neighbourhood

  • around your country

  • around the world.

How can you encourage others to use their helping hands?

How do we know that God has us in his hands?

 

SONG: GOD’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

 

GOD’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

GOD’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

GOD’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

 

GOD’S GOT PARENTS & THEIR CHILDREN IN HIS HANDS

GOD’S GOT PARENTS & THEIR CHILDREN IN HIS HANDS

GOD’S GOT PARENTS & THEIR CHILDREN IN HIS HANDS

HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

 

GOD’S GOT THE BUGS AND THE ANIMALS IN HIS HANDS…

 

GOD’S GOT THE BIRDS & THE FLOWERS IN HIS HANDS…

 

(Keep going…how many more verses can you think of?)
