Ice lollies as a rod or a staff?
Your rod and staff comfort me... Being guided by God is not always as clear, easy or obvious as we would like. With this craft activity and creative form of prayer you can help children to think about the guidance that God gives us.
This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on Psalm 23 and the Bible passage in John 10: 11-18 on Jesus being the Good Shepherd.
This creative activity will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, VBS, kidmin, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd, the church as a flock
What do you need:
- ice lolly sticks
- labels with string
What do you do:
Ice lolly sticks aren't really comparable to the rod and staff of the Shepherd. But still...
In this prayer idea/craft idea you can decorate an ice lolly stick with stickers, markers and. When you have decorated your stick, take a label and write on it in what way you want God to guide you in the future. Tie this label to the stick and take it home with you.
