God made me!

Over at All join in I have been posting a series on "God made me" with a play activity for each sense/ body part


For God made me activities, there were several, starting with play dough to make people
We then decorated gingerbread men, and boy did some get decorated! This is the poem sheet the gingerbread men were iced on, making it easier to transport and creating a great context for talking about how wonderful God made us, even if we made the best thing in the entire world we couldn't compare. If you would like a pdf version of this, email me or comment.
If you would like a pdf version of this, email or comment with your email address and I'll send you one.

This dressing doll provides a great context for talking about lots of things children may want to be, and how God has lots of plans for our lives and we could be anything He wants us to be. Lastly I drew their attention to the superhero costume said "What sort of things do super heros do?", answers: super powers, flies, help people etc. "Well God is more amazing than any super hero and even though we won't fly He can help us to do amazing things and help lots of people, can you think of ways God may help you to help people"
I then gave them the opportunity to draw/ decorate/ colour this made, which is exactly the same shape as the doll (After hours of tracing and the transferring to digital image). The poem (adapted from dltk-bible) provide an opportunity to remind us about God's plans for us- and continue the discussion at home? Again if you would like a pdf copy let me know.

I am NOT usually one for utilising colouring sheets in this context but I think that they do provide and optional format for some children who really need/ want this. If it is the context of other more open activities and it is truly considered WHY? do I want to use this and what purpose doe it serve then I think these can have their place. As it was a few children- boys (I think) did use them to make police/ fire men etc.
