Tell kids to:
*Cut long 1/2-inch-wide strips from the assorted materials.
*Begin at one end and weave your strips through the slits.
*Be creative with your textures. You may want to leave some of the
ends of the materials hanging loose.
Bible Activity: Read Exodus 35:35.
Say: God gave the people great weaving skills. God
gives people skills. What are skills you’re good at? (Have kids
each tell several things they’re good at.) Let’s thank God for
giving us so many wonderful skills.
