You will need . . .
- Your Bible.
- Bags - paper lunch bags work very well for this.
- Crayons or markers.
- Strips of paper - 11 inches long by about 1/2 inch wide.
Talk with your grandchildren about what it means to be wise, give examples of choices they may make which are wise - be sure to let them share. Go on to talk about how when they make the choice to be wise - and especially when they share Jesus with others, they will "shine" like the stars!
Then let them open their "Mystery Bags" and color their strips of paper - either color them or make designs . . . whatever they like. When they finish this, show them how to make little origami stars. (Follow the instructions at this link.)
Talk about what it might mean for them to "shine like the stars" and encourage them to make another star each time they have been able to make a wise choice or share Jesus with someone - they could write on their paper strip the specifics motivating the star - and then fill their paper bag with stars. You could tell them you will do this as well.
Handing down the faith to our grandchildren does not have to be difficult - and it absolutely is able to be a lot of fun!
