Chemical Reactions | Week 2
Each week we are adding one of these elements to our formula so that we can be like God…
2 Peter 1:5-7 “…add this to your life: faith, and to your faith, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, patience; and to patience, service for God; and to service for God, kindness; and to kindness, love.
Our science experiment this week was making bubbles! We added “goodness” to our formula and what better way to remember goodness than with bubbles? They are squeaky clean and make everyone smile!
Here’s what your children learned about while they were with us:
Character Element: Goodness (we focused on making good choices)
Story: King Josiah (2 Kings 22:1-7)
Bible Verse: “…and to your faith, add GOODNESS” 2 Peter 1:5b
Prayer: Dear Jesus, everything about You is good. Help me to make good choices so that I can be like You. Guide me to see that Your way is the best way. Amen
And here are some ways you can reinforce at home what they learned at church:
Parents: Do a good deed with your child for someone else this week, then explain to your child why you took the time to help someone else. Explain what making good choices does for your heart!
Birth – Age 2: Choices help children develop independence and individuality; however, too many choices can be overwhelming for young children. A good rule of thumb is to offer your child the number of choices as is their age (two choices for a two year old = would you like to wear your blue shirt or green shirt). This sets your children up for success and helps them develop the skills to make good choices!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: The next time you read a story or watch a show, talk with your children about choices the characters made and what the results were of those choices. Ask them what choices they would have made in a similar situation.
