During the month of January, celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech” with children. Kids will create a classroom mural portraying their hope for the future.
- a roll of butcher paper,
- markers, and
- a Bible.
Elementary + Preteen Bible Activity: Hope for the Future
Talk with kids about the main points of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Read aloud Jeremiah 29:11 and ask kids to talk about what plans they think God has for their futures.
Then have kids write or draw their hopes and dreams on the butcher paper. Print Jeremiah 29:11 at the top of the mural, and display it in your children’s ministry area for families to enjoy throughout the month.
