Bible Connect: Hebrews 12:2

Materials: Liquid tempera paint, bubble solution, shallow baking pan, drinking straws, and white construction paper

What to Do: Mix liquid tempera paint and bubble solution to desired color, then pour the colored solution into the bottom of a shallow baking pan. Have kids use straws to blow into the bubble solution and create large, colored bubbles. Then have kids quickly place a piece of construction paper over the top of the bubbles to create a bubble picture.

Dry-Off Debrief: Say: Divers can get confused when they’re in deep water because it can be difficult to tell which way is up toward the surface. The bubbles from their oxygen tank may seem to be going sideways, but the bubbles can give the right direction. Bubbles generally rise to the surface.

Read aloud the Scripture.

Ask: What things can distract you from keeping your eyes on Jesus? How can we know what Jesus wants us to do? Why is it important to keep our eyes on Jesus?

  1. Great project and application. Two quick SCUBA corrections: Bubbles generally go up. There are some unique situations where downward currents can be strong enough to draw exhaled bubbles down. The better way to judge up is where water inside your mask sits. It always sits on the down side. Second, although technical divers my carry cylinders of oxygen for off gassing at shallow depths for decompression purposes, recreational divers dive with compressed air or nitrox (specialty training required). Not trying to be too picky but as a SCUBA instructor and the safety of new divers, these details are important.

      Mike, thanks for that insight. We’ve made a few changes–instead of saying “always,” it now says “generally.” Do you think that works better?
