Kids learn how bees spread pollen–and how we can spread God’s love to others.
Stuff: Talc-free baby powder, a plastic tub, and an activity area.
What to do: Empty containers of talc-free baby powder into a shallow tub. Tell kids when bees spread pollen, they gather it from one flower and then leave pollen prints everywhere they go after that.
Kids can practice spreading pollen by taking off their shoes and socks and stepping into the tub of baby powder.
When their feet are covered with powder, kids can run around so they see how their powder footprints spread. (Baby powder vacuums and sweeps up easily.)
Tell kids that just like a bee spreads pollen everywhere it goes, we can spread God’s love everywhere we go, too.
