But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
To easily explain fruits of the spirit to a child, try using this one:
Fruits of the spirit can be looked at as seeds that God grows inside of us so that others can see what God's love really looks like.
If you have been following along with our weekly messages and songs/activities for kids, your family may be familiar with the Fruit of the Spirit song! It's a great time to listen to it all week long and discuss those different fruits of the spirit together.
This week, I wanted to share TWO activities with you. The first is to cut out different colors and shapes, write the different fruits of the spirit on each shape, and hide them around the house for a scavenger hunt. Kids at this age LOVE scavenger hunts so don't be surprised if they ask you to repeat the hiding multiple times! At the end, tape or glue them to a piece of paper in order and hang it up for review.
The second is to find 9 DIFFERENT fruits to label with each fruit of the spirit, and to have a family cooking time in preparing a fruit salad with those fruits in review. Yes, kids make huge messes in the kitchen, but we just have to remind ourselves that they are learning and most kids learn best when the teaching is done hands-on!
Hope you guys all have a great week!
