KidZone Activities: Week of July 5, 2020

 

THE BIG IDEA:

I can spend time with God anywhere.
 

READ THE BIBLE TOGETHER:

Exodus 35: 4-35
 

ASK THIS:

Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation-starter that isn’t, “So . . . how was church?”
 
  1. What did the Israelites build?
  2. Why do you think the Israelites built the tabernacle?
  3. What are some ways you can spend time with God?
 

REMEMBER THIS:

This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verse: 1 Samuel 12:24 (NIV), in case you want to work on it together.

TIP OF THE MONTH:

As much as we love our kids, sometimes they step out of line — way out of line. And while discipline is necessary, it isn’t always so simple. It can be easy to discipline from a place of anger or frustration rather than love. Ask yourself these things before you discipline your child: Am I calm? Have I explained why they’re being disciplined? Have I listened to their perspective? Am I showing them I still love them? Am I holding a grudge or giving them the silent treatment?
 

RESOURCE OF THE MONTH:

Being optimistic is a valuable tool for kids to develop early on. Watch this little video on how everyday people are finding ways to remain optimistic.
 

QUESTION OF THE MONTH:

We consider intentional family time essential in the development of our kids, and we know in the past few months you may have had an increase of unexpected time together.
 
So here’s a question:
What is something your family does to intentionally build your relationships as a family unit? Send us an email and let us know!
