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.)

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.
