What are Memorials?

Did you know that memorials are not a human concept.  Nope!  God started this and we have many memorials we learn about in the bible.  Do our children understand what a memorial is?  Do they know that they have biblical memorials still today?  Are they being taught in a manner so they don’t fall on the same path as the Israelite’s who so many times were found worshiping the memorial instead of using it only as a reminder to worship God?

Teaching kids about God’s memorials

Downloadable Memorial Day Lesson & Activity is available for you to use as it is or modify to best fit your kiddo’s.  It teaches kids what a memorial is and the most important memorial Christians have today.  Then, there’s a suggestion for an activity allowing kids to think about what reminds them of God and then mold their very own memorial out of clay.  (You can use Play-Doh for the younger kids.)

If you haven’t subscribed and would enjoy more bible activities like this one, subscribe here so you don’t miss a thing!  You’ll receive an email every Friday with posts from the week.

 

 

Need clay?  

Need modeling clay?  Here are a few options to make it easy on you, but look around.  There are a ton of choices!  I am purchasing a colorful one today for my class.  Remember, clay is hard so kids will need to use their muscles and soften if to mold something amazing.
