A fun snack based on the story from the book of Genesis on the
life of Esau and the importance of being honest.
Verses to Devour: Genesis 27:21-23
Supplies: a kiwi fruit, half a banana, a grape, two
raisins, a plastic knife, and a paper plate.
What to Do: Rinse the fruit, and peel the banana half.
Using the plastic knife, quarter the kiwi lengthwise-leaving the
skin on the kiwi-so you have four canoe-shaped pieces. Place the
banana half on the paper plate as Esau’s body, and place the kiwi
sections as Esau’s fuzzy arms and legs. Use the grape for Esau’s
head and the two raisins for his feet. Admire your fruit sculpture,
and then eat it.
What to say: As the kids are enjoying their Fuzzy Arms
sculptures, read aloud Genesis 27:21-23.
Ask: How do you think Esau felt when he found out that
his brother stole his blessing? How can dishonesty hurt someone?
hurt God? Why do you think God wants us to be honest?
Pray: Dear God, we know that you value honesty. Please
help us work hard to be fair and honest. Amen.
Allergy Alert: Some children have food
allergies that can be dangerous. Know your children, and consult
with parents about allergies their children may have.
