- im! Decorate with stickers or sequins, etc for a wall hanging.
MUSTARD SEED NECKLACE:
Draw and cut out small circle about the size of a medallion. Have children draw a mustard seen on one side (or glue on a real mustard seed if available); and on the other side of the medallion necklace, children can write: WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
SHIELD OF FAITH:
Make a large shield out of poster board and have children draw a cross in the middle and write FAITH across the top and wear over their shoulders as a shield,with rope, string or yarn.
Teacher can have a picture of a mustard seed and a large bush with the Bible verse printed on the picture - cut into several pieces and give one puzzle in an envelope to each child to put together and quote the Bible verse together!!
Have children take turn decorating a class poster that will say in large letters: FAITH IS JUST BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAID HE WOULD DO!!
- Have child draw FAITH as large as possible on the chalkboard. Another child can draw a TINY mustard seed in the corner and another child can draw a very LARGE MUSTARD BUSH. Each child can write their names on part of the mustard bush if they choose to have FAITH in GOD. Discuss asking God for more faith to believe and to trust because GOD HAS ALL POWER!!!
