Family Easter Activity: Faith Seedlings
Have your family members each place four seeds in a folded piece of paper towel, and then place the paper towel inside a baggie, leaving the baggie open. Moisten—but don’t swamp—the towels and place the seed baggies in a sunny area.
Have different family members care for the seedlings each day. Read aloud 1 Corinthians 3:6-9:
“I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.”
Talk about how your family’s seedlings are like or unlike each family member’s faith growth and development.
