GRADES 1 AND 2
Bible Activity: A Helping Hand-Give kids three bedsheets,
chairs and clothespins. Have them create a house with a hole in it
to lower something in to. Afterward, have the children use a
blanket to lower an object into the house.

Emphasize that it took cooperation to accomplish their task. Read
aloud Mark 2:1-5. Discuss the cooperation in the
scripture and how it compares to kids’ cooperation in this
activity.

Craft: Cooperative Mural-Tape several sheets of newsprint
to a wall from the floor up to the ceiling. Have children draw the
Bible story using finger paints. As they work, point out instances
of cooperation.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
You’ll need: sandwich ingredients, blunt knives, plates and
napkins.

Directions: Line up ingredients on a table at the
children’s level. Assign a child or two to each ingredient. Or
assign more than one ingredient to a child. Have children work
together in this assembly line to make sandwiches. Cut sandwiches
into fourths, and let kids enjoy their cooperative efforts.

FOR ALL AGES
Plan a special visit to a nursing home. Have kids work together to
plan a program that includes singing, prayer, a Bible story and a
simple craft. Prepare refreshments together. As kids cooperate,
compliment them on how well they’re working together.
