Family Time is a ministry all about offering parents object lessons and activities they can do with their kids to teach biblical lessons. Gold mine. If you go to their website and sign up to get their emails, once a month, you’ll get a free activity to try out in your own home. Here’s a past activity they’ve given me permission to repost. (There’s also one affiliate link.)
In this activity, you’ll use water and food coloring for a powerful demonstration on how the few can make a great impact on the many.
For a second visual straight from the passage, you’ll show a mustard seed. It’s a visual Jesus uses to teach how something small can become something truly great in God’s hands. You may already have mustard seeds in your spice cabinet, but if not, they are cheap at the grocery store (or here: mustard seeds).
To really make the point, check out this picture of full-grown mustard plants!
(Fun fact: This post makes mention of Donald Trump before he was President!)
This is a pretty simple activity that really works for all ages. Do you have other illustrations for how one person or one act can make a big impact for God’s kingdom? Tell me about it in the comments!
