Day 3 was all about spreading God's love! Sure is amazing that he trusts us with such big responsibilities such as spreading his love! We have a parent at our school that tells her baby every morning when she drops him off to "Show God's Love Today!" What a great reminder! Now I've started doing the same with Ava Greer and then we try to reflect at the end of the day on those times we were able to (me too) show God's Love! We tried to reflect on missed out opportunities as well. Another amazing responsibility he trusted many of us with is raising his precious children. What better way to show his love than through our children! I have to admit I can be short fused at times with these little ones. I so desire to be filled with the fruits of the spirit though, so I can share his Love with these sweet babies and all others I come in contact with! What a priviledge!
I cut coffee filters in the shape of hearts. We used food coloring to tint water and water droppers to watch how a little drop can spread and make a big change. Just like his love when we spread it! If you do this with your little ones I would just use straight up food coloring rather than mixing it with water. It makes it brighter. A little goes a long way! When the hearts dried we glued them to construction paper and attached a sticker that said, "Spread God's Love!"
Our special snack/craft were actually ideas from the VBS curriculum book. People Paws... Popcorn and Gummies in a plastic glove as a reminder that God uses his people to spread his love!
Hope you can do some of these fun things with your little ones!
