Let us set you free from uninspired ideas with these five cool activities that will go over with a bang! 5 Independence Day Activities to Make Your 4th of July a Blast 1. Free at Last Here’s an interactive object lesson that is super simple in terms of supplies. All you need is some kind of box (like a shoebox) and some kind of weight (like a brick or two). Challenge kids to hold the box for as long as possible. Once kids experience what it’s like to have something dragging them down, take the weight away and read Romans 6:18. This opens the door for a discussion on what it means to be free from sin. 2. Fireworks in a Jar Not able to shoot fireworks? Here’s a neat alternative for little kids that we found at icanteachmychild.com. Jenae, the blog’s owner, created this fun activity for kids to see a colorful, firework-free show inside a bottle. 3. Set Free Here’s another super-simple activity that teaches freedom in Christ and is perfect for kids ages 6 to 9 years old. Using a yarn and referring to Romans 6:20-23, kids learn what it’s like to be tangled up in sin and how Jesus can set us free from that entanglement. 4. Patriotic Headband This craft by Kinder-craze’s Maria Manore was originally designed for Constitution Day, but it could work for your Independence Day festivities as well. Kids will love designing their very own patriotic headwear and they can keep these as a memento of what they discovered in your ministry that day. 5. The Whole Shebang Need something bigger?
