Use this children’s message: Washed Clean with children ages 6 to 8.

You’ll need a Bible, 1 large sponge per child, markers, scissors

Set out the supplies. Instruct your kids to draw a shape such as a heart or star on the sponge with a marker. Then have kids cut along the line to end up with a fun-shaped sponge.

Read aloud 1 John 1:7-9. Ask kids what they think it means that God cleans us from wickedness. Then lead kids in singing a song to the tune of “The Mulberry Bush” while pretending to wash all over with their sponges.

This is the way God cleans our sins, cleans our sins, cleans our sins.

This is the way God cleans our sins and makes our hearts brand new.

Encourage your kids to take their sponges home and sing the song in the shower or bath to remind them to seek God’s forgiveness whenever they need it this year.
