Halloween Kids Sunday School Lesson: Jesus cares when we feel afraid.

1. Care Call

Bring in several items that represent caring professionals, such as a stuffed animal for a veterinarian. Ask kids to match the item with the profession. Discuss how each person cares for something or someone.

2. Bible Activity: Balloon Bash

Say: Jesus cares for us when we feel afraid.

You’ll need:

  • 1 inflated and tied-off balloon for each child except 1
  • music player

Play music.

Say: Keep your balloons in the air until the music stops. When the music stops, grab one balloon. Whoever’s left without a balloon sits out for one round.

Turn off the lights and play several times. After the game, say: Sometimes dark places are scary. Who can tell about a time you’ve felt scared? Who did you turn to for help?

Read aloud Mark 4:35-41. Ask:

  • Why do you think Jesus’ friends turned to him when they were scared?
  • Why do you think Jesus helped them?

Say: Jesus’ friends felt afraid. But they were safe because Jesus was with them. Jesus is always with us, too.

3. Halloween Craft: No Fear Faces

Say: Sometimes we hide our true feelings when we’re afraid. That’s like wearing a mask. Let’s make masks to show how we feel when we’re afraid.

Cut an egg carton into six sections with pairs of cups attached. Give each child a section. Have children cut large holes in the bottoms of their cups. Then have children decorate the outside of their cups with yarn, glitter, and feathers. After their masks are finished, help children staple an elastic band to the edges of the mask so they can wear it.

Have children put on their masks and talk about things that are scary for them, such as giving an oral report or being home alone. Then have children take off their masks as you read aloud Psalm 56:3. Reinforce the idea that we don’t need to be afraid because Jesus is always with us.

4. Prayer

Form a circle and close in prayer thanking Jesus for caring for us when we’re afraid and for always being with us.

5. Snack

You’ll need:

  • apple slices
  • peanut butter
  • mini marshmallows
  • blunt knives

Allergy Alert: Some children have food allergies that can be dangerous. Know your children, and consult with parents about allergies their children may have.

Have children spread peanut butter on their apple slices. Then have them stick four mini marshmallows to the peanut butter to make “smiles.”

Say: We feel happy when God protects us and keeps us safe. When we feel happy, we smile. Turn and give each other a big smile.

Then enjoy eating your apple smile.
