Patience, Patience Before class, decorate a bag with hearts and write the word “patience” on it. Place a heart-shaped box of candy in the bag with the words “Love is patient and kind” written on it. When children arrive, show them the bag. Say: I have a special treat for you, but we’ll need to wait to share it. Throughout your time together, remind them of the special treat and that they’ll need to be patient. 2. Patient, Patient Form two groups. Ask one group to sit in a circle. Give the other group ambulance drivers’ hats. Use a strip of white paper stapled together to form a circle with a red cross colored on the front. Explain to the ambulance drivers that they’ll be caring for the children who fall down in a game. Ambulance drivers need to help kids up and give them a hug. Have the group in the circle play Ring Around the Rosie. When they “all fall down,” have children make ambulance sounds and pick up all the wounded. Have children switch places and play again. Afterward, ask: How did it feel when you fell and someone helped you up and hugged you? Did you need to be patient and wait for the ambulance team? What does it feel like when you fall and no one picks you up? Read aloud the first part of 1 Corinthians 13:4. Ask: Who are the people who show you God’s love by being patient with you? If someone is patient with you, does that make you feel loved? Why or why not? Is there anyone you need to be patient with? 3. Heart to Heart You’ll need: 2 construction paper hearts per child several white paper hearts per child yarn crayons a sticker of Jesus for each child Have children draw pictures of people who love them on separate white hearts. Encourage children to remember their parents, family, teachers, and pastor. Help children place their white hearts between their red hearts and punch two holes through the top of the hearts. Thread yarn through the holes and tie a bow. Have children put their Jesus stickers on the front cover to remind them that Jesus loves them too. 4. Worth Waiting Open the “patience” bag and pass out the candy. Ask: Was it hard to wait for this candy? Why or why not? What does it feel like to wait? How can we show love to others by being patient when they take a long time with something we want? when they don’t seem to learn as fast as we do? when they won’t give us what we want right now? 5. Snack You’ll need: a prepared cake mix powdered sugar frosting in a tube strawberry preserves Spoon cake batter into muffin cups, filling each half full. Spoon 1 teaspoon of preserves into the center of each cupcake. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 25 minutes. Dust each cupcake with powdered sugar. Makes 12. Have children each use frosting in a tube to put a cross on their cupcake. Remind children as they enjoy their snack that we can only love people the way God wants when Christ is hidden in our hearts—like the preserves are hidden in their cupcakes.
