Remind kids how fun it is to praise God.
Bible Connect: Psalm 149:3-4
Best for: Ages 6 to 12
Stuff Per Group: Raisins, clear plastic cups, and
The Experiment: Ask: Can raisins dance?
Fill a cup with carbonated water and drop in several raisins. Ask
kids to hypothesize about what'll happen. Watch for a few minutes
to see what the raisins do. Then enjoy a raisin snack.
Scientific Facts: Carbonated beverages are
pressurized by carbon dioxide gas.
Carbon dioxide bubbles attach to the wrinkled raisins and cause
them to float and bounce. They'll continue to "dance" up and down
until they get soggy or the carbonated water goes flat.
Talk About It: Ask: Was your guess correct? Why
did the raisins dance? Read the Scripture. Are the bubbles like or
unlike how God wants us to praise him? How can we praise God with
enthusiasm every day?
