Preteen Message and Bible Snack: Chips and “Salt”sa

This preteen message and snack combo teaches preteens about the importance of having honoring conversations.


For this fun and delicious lesson, you’ll need:

  • salted and unsalted tortilla chips,
  • a Bible,
  • napkins, and
  • salsa

Preteen Message and Bible Snack: Chips and “Salt”sa

Give each preteen unsalted chips in one hand and salted chips in the other. Have kids eat their chips, one hand at a time.

Ask:

  • How did your chips taste?
  • Was one tastier than the other? Why or why not?
  • How did you feel after you ate each handful?

Read aloud Colossians 4:6. Say, “Salt improved the taste of the chips. The salted chips left a good taste in our mouths. In the same way, our words and actions should leave a ‘good taste’ for others.

Ask:

  • What does a ‘salty’ conversation sound like?
  • What words describe a salty conversation?
  • How can we be intentional about leaving a ‘good taste’ for other people?”

Close in prayer, asking God to help us leave “good tastes” for all the people we encounter. Then serve the leftover chips with salsa as a snack.
