Scripture Lesson Snack Ideas

Use these when you teach with our Scripture Story Bible Felts!

Away in a Manger

Collect: Marshmallow creme, fat pretzel rods, graham crackers, frosted shredded wheat cereal, and
paper plates.

Here's what to do: Set all the materials in the middle of the table and give each child a paper plate. Have kids begin by breaking up several pieces of frosted shredded wheat cereal and putting it on their plates. Give children each four pretzel sticks (halved rods) and instruct them to put their pretzels into pairs. Thenshow kids how to stick each pair together with marshmallow creme. Show them how to lean one-fourth of a graham cracker on each of the pretzel pairs to form mangers. Have kids glue the crackers to the pretzel pairs, using the marshmallow creme. Then allow students to fill the manger with the shredded-cereal "hay". Before kids enjoy their manger treats, have everyone sing "Away In A Manger" to remember the lowly place where Jesus -a king- was born.

Theme: God uses difficult situations for good.

Scripture Spotlight 1: "The angel said, 'Paul, do not be afraid. You must stand before Caesar. And God has promised that he will save the lives of everyone sailing with you.' So men, have courage" (Act 27:24-25a).

Scripture Spotlight 2: "We went through fire and flood, but you brought us to a place with good things" (Psalm 66:12b)

Collect: One banana per student, paper plates, plastic knives, and peanut butter (optional: roasted peanuts and chocolate syrup)

Have kids wash their hands, then form groups of three. Instruct each child to choose one of the following roles: Boat peeler, boat splitter, or boat filler. Explain that the boat peeler will peel the bananas and set each one on a paper plate, the boat splitter will cut each banana down the middle, and the boat filler will spread peanut butter on one half each banana and place the halves back together. You may have kids "storm" their banana boats with chocolate syrup and roasted peanuts as a finishing touch. Then have each trio serve its banana boats to another trio.

For Further Fun:
Have kids write on slips of paper things they're thankful for, then spear the slips of paper with toothpick. Kids can stick the toothpicks in the banana boats as masts and sails. As kids eat their boats, have them talk about how God has helped them through hard times.

Graham Cracker Stars (Epiphany idea)

Materials Needed: graham crackers squares, canned frosting, yellow food coloring, plastic knives, candy sprinkles, spice gumdrops, spoon

Directions: Use food coloring to tint the frosting yellow. Give each child two graham cracker squares. Have each child frost one graham cracker square with frosting. Help the child place a second cracker on top of it diagonally (to form a star). Tell the children to frost the top and sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Then can then place a gumdrop in the center and enjoy. The spice gumdrops are a reminder of one of the gifts that the wise men brought to Jesus. Ask the children if they know which gift.
