Seasonal Elementary + Preteen Object Lesson: Corn Husking You’ll Need: Bible unhusked corn Place corn on a table and tell kids that they’ll have one minute to husk as many ears of corn as they can. Afterward, discuss how an unhusked ear of corn is like or unlike who we are on the outside. Read aloud 1 Samuel 16:7: “But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.'” Have kids discuss the person that God sees. Remind kids that we don’t need to hide from God because he knows our hearts. Conclude the activity by boiling the corn and eating it with salt and butter. Looking for even more games and ideas? Check out The Humongous Book of Games for Children’s Ministry.
