It’s based on Romans 8:38-39. You’ll need: Bibles paper markers scissors plastic straws or pencils tape Elementary Children’s Message: From the Heart Form pairs, and have partners brainstorm ways to keep Jesus first in their lives during the coming year. After two minutes, ask pairs to share their ideas. Then say: Things like prayer, reading the Bible, worshipping God, and going to church all help keep our hearts turned toward Jesus. And when we turn our lives to Jesus, nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Have kids read aloud Romans 8:38-39. Then have them each follow these instructions to make a craft to remind them to keep Jesus first in their hearts. First, cut two 2-inch squares of paper. Then on one square, draw a big heart, and on the other, write “JESUS.” Tape the papers back to back with a plastic straw in the center. Say: Now twirl the straw and watch what happens. Jesus appears in the heart. Looking for more elementary crafts? Check out these posts! And for even more creative ideas and daily posts of inspiration, follow us on Facebook! © Group Publishing, Inc.
