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.
