Preschool and Elementary Message: Turning Our Trash Into Treasure

treasure

Use this preschool + elementary message: Trash to Treasure with kids ages 3 to 7 to teach them that God is always renewing our spirits.

What You’ll Need:

  • a Bible
  • paper towel tubes
  • markers
  • duct tape
  • bottle caps or soda can tabs

Preschool + Elementary Message: Turning Our Trash Into Treasure

Read aloud 2 Corinthians 5:15-17.

Give each child a paper towel tube and a few bottle caps or soda can tabs.

Say: Your supplies are things that normally get thrown away. But we’re going to make something out of them to remember how God turns bad to good in us.


First, have kids use markers to decorate their tubes. Seal one end with duct tape, and then have kids put their bottle caps and soda can tabs inside. Tape the other end securely.

Have kids shake their instruments as you say: When we feel all used up, like garbage, we can remember that God renews our spirits. This year, when you’re in a bad mood, shake your instrument and remember that God is renewing you into a treasure.
