WCC Kids at Home: April 18th

Online video and curriculum for you to do as a family at home!

Check here Thursdays to see the new curriculum and videos, discussion questions, and downloadable crafts for you to do at home!

1. Watch the Worship & Bible Story Video!


WHAT YOU DO: Fold a piece of paper in half and show your child how to cut it into the shape of a heart (when its unfolded). Have them cut their own, then color and decorate it. Attach a ribbon or string for a tail. If you're feeling very adventurous, have your kids experiment with putting paint on one half of the heart and then folding the heart in half to create symmetrical designs. Remind your kids that Jesus showed His love by sharing, and that’s what His friends did, too. If your child wants to make another heart, encourage them to make one to give away to a friend!

Read Romans 12:18

When you’re mad, like really mad, peace is hard. When someone says something mean, it’s hard to walk away. That’s when what you focus on becomes really important. Instead of thinking about what’s been said or what’s been done, what if you shifted your focus to peace, instead? There are actually lots of things you can do.

You can stop. You can ask God to help you. You can walk away. You can talk to an adult. You can choose kind words instead of unkind words.

This week, when you find yourself getting really mad about something, instead of focusing on what’s been done to you, try to focus on what you can do. Ask God to help you live in peace with everyone, as much as you can.

Peace Out

Today, create a visual reminder of peace. Find three pipe cleaners and some yarn. Make a circle with the first pipe cleaner. Make a vertical line with the second pipe cleaner down the center of the circle. Then, make an upside-down “V” with the third pipe cleaner. Attach it to the middle of the vertical line. Then attach the two ends of the “V” to the circle. Attach the peace sign to it to make a necklace.

Dear God,
Thank you for helping me understand how important it is to be at peace with everyone.
