Scripture Reading, March 22nd, 2020
John 9: 1-41 Jesus Heals The Man Born Blind
Read the scripture lesson with your children and talk about what it might be like to be blind. How would you do things differently? Talk about how we see people who might be different from ourselves. While we may do things in different ways, hear things in different ways or see things in different ways, we are all God’s children.
1. Try having your children do some of the following activities blindfolded to see what it’s like:
- Draw a picture…a heart, a cross, the church etc.
- Eat a snack…see if the children can figure out what they’re eating by feeling and tasting
2. Put a variety of objects into a bag. With their eyes closed, have the children feel inside the bag to identify the different objects.
3. The Memory Game: Place a variety of objects on a tray and let the children study it for a few minutes. Then cover the tray and see how many items they can remember.
GENERAL ACTIVITIES for during the week
SPRING SCAVENGER HUNT
Spring is here and wonderful things are happening in God’s world. Look around and see how many signs of Spring you can find (blossoms, new flowers etc). Then draw a picture! If you can’t go outside, look out your window and see what you can spy! Maybe use a telescope or binoculars!
Send us your Spring drawings by using the MESSAGE US BUTTON on the top menu of every page and we’ll post them on this page to share with everyone!
Stories are a great way for children to find laughter and comfort when times are difficult. Below are a few videos of some of our favourite stories at Knox. I'll be adding more each week so stay tuned!
