Elementary Bible Activity: Grain Painting and Sharing With Each Other

Use this elementary Bible activity to help teach kids the importance of sharing with each other. Children will also learn about Boaz and his generosity towards Ruth. 

You’ll need:

  • A bag of unpopped popcorn,
  • paper cups,
  • plastic spoons,
  • construction paper,
  • tempera paint,
  • large shallow boxes, and
  • paper towels.

Text: Ruth 1-2

Preschool Bible Activity: Grain Painting and Sharing With Each Other

Form four groups. Say: One group is in charge of all the popcorn, one of all the paper, one of all the boxes, and one of all the paint. Use your supplies to make grain paintings. Popcorn is a grain. You’ll need to share your supplies to do this.


Give each kid a cup and spoon. Fill each cup 1/4 full of unpopped popcorn. Add one spoonful of paint to each cup and stir until the kernels are coated.

Place one sheet of paper in each box. Pour the paint-coated kernels onto the paper and shake the box gently to create a design.

Remove the paper and pour the used kernels into a trash can. Continue this process until everyone has made a grain painting.

Ask:

  • How did it feel to work with other groups to accomplish your goal?
  • Could you have made your picture if the other groups hadn’t shared with you? Explain.
  • How can you show the same kind of generosity at home or at school?

Say: In Ruth 1-2, Boaz was generous to leave grain for Ruth. God blessed Boaz for his generosity. Whenever you see or eat grain, think of Boaz and remember to be generous.
