“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity to sin; but through love serve one another.” – Galatians 5:13
help·ful [help-fuhl]– adj.giving or renderingaidorassistance;ofservice
Reason Chosen: It’s important to teach kids how to be thoughtful and serve others. Teaching them to show kindness through helpfulness helps them feel better about themselves as they make other people around them happy. We want to raise kids with a helpful spirit.
Word Ring At the beginning of each week, the craft will be exactly the same because we will simply be adding a new word to our already established word ring. Materials Needed * Stock Card Paper (I had a whole stack like this – found at any craft store) * Assorted Sticker Letters (I just bought a bunch on clearance at Michael’s) * Binder Clips (Craft Store) * Paper Cutter or Scissors * Hole Punch The girls chose a paper style they thought would look good with the letters they chose. We then helped them sound out “helpful.” They took turns finding the letters we needed and sticking them on the paper…they’re kids – the letters will not be stuck on perfect. I then cut the paper to the same size as the paper from last week. We punched a hole in the corner and stuck it on our binding clip. Each week, a new word will be added to the clip in similar fashion. I then wrote the Bible verse on the back. If your kids are older, have them do it themselves. We’ll spend this week learning the word, meaning and memorizing the scripture.
