Paraphrase Matthew 7:24-27. Then *ask: What’s happening to our pictures? Which kind of house would you want to live in? How does God want us to treat our families?

Say: Nothing can hurt our families if we love each other.

Craft: Upon This Rock-Have children each cut out a rock shape from black construction paper. Have kids cut out magazine pictures to represent their family members and glue the pictures to their rocks.

Say: God is our solid rock. He wants to keep our families safe and together. God takes care of our families as we stick with him.

Snack: You’ll need: Fortune cookies, slips of paper, pencils and sandwich bags.

Directions: Have kids write each family member’s name and an encouraging note on a slip of paper. For example, kids may write, “Mom, thanks for making such good meals for me.” Help younger children write their notes. Insert each of the slips into a different fortune cookie-one to give to each family member. Then have kids put their cookies in a sandwich bag to take home. Let kids eat the leftover cookies.



Get families together for a Family Appreciation Dessert. Children can make and serve a simple dessert such as brownie sundaes or decorated cakes. Kids can present handmade awards and tell why they love each family member.
