Grades K-6

Objective: Children will learn that Christ sets
them free from selfishness so they can serve others.
Stuff you’ll need: Poster board, cardboard, or
construction paper; red, white, and blue liquid tempera paint; wash
basins filled with water; and towels.
Get ready: Have girls wear pants or shorts for
this activity. Pour different-colored paint into aluminum pie pans.
Cover kids’ work area with newspapers.
Text: Galatians 5:1, 13-14

Tell kids to:

*Take off your shoes and sit by a sheet of paper. (Older
children may enjoy creating murals together, while younger children
may enjoy making individual paintings.)

Kids love our Sunday School resources!

*Let’s celebrate freedom by painting an Independence Day picture
with our toes. Place your toes in the pans of paint and paint a
picture on your paper.

*Once you’re finished with your picture, wash your feet and set
your picture aside to dry.

Talk teasers: Tell about your picture. You were
all free to create whatever you wanted to-with some guidelines,
such as colors to use and a topic to focus on. Let’s look at
another kind of freedom we Christians enjoy.

Read the Scripture.

What freedoms do we have in our country? What does the Bible say
Christians are free from? What does the Bible mean when it talks
about using our freedom to serve others? (For older children only:
How is our freedom in Christ similar to the freedom we have in our
country?) How can we use our freedom in Christ to serve others this
