Using butcher paper, have kids each make a giant footprint and write their name on it. In the center of their footprint, have them each write the biggest giant they’re facing. Then have kids write on each others’ footprints words of encouragement or drawings of how God can help them overcome their giant. Encourage kids to hang these footprints in their room at home.

Give kids the candy as a reminder of the rock that David threw to kill Goliath. Close in prayer with children taking turns to ask God to help him or her overcome a personal giant or problem.
