Use this free download to create adorable monsters that help kids fight their fears.
You’ll need a crayons, scissors, tape, and one Scary Figure per child (download these here.)
Create a sample monster beforehand.
Say: Sometimes things in life can be scary. Invite children to share their fears. Distribute the Scary Figures. Show your premade monster.
Say: Let’s pretend these are our fears. Choose one thing you’re most afraid of and color your monster to show what you think it’d look like if it was a monster.
Have kids follow the directions on the page to assemble the monster. Let kids show off their monsters. Then have them each write Psalm 27:1 on a leftover scrap and cut it into a slip of paper they can tape around the monster. Say: Whenever you’re afraid, look at the verse around your monster. Remember that God’s always with you and always protects you. These monsters—wrapped in God’s Word—can help you fight your fear.
