Play with Purpose
Draw four pictures – food, family, friends and the earth. Tape the pictures up on different walls of the room. Explain that when you say the name of one of these things they are to walk as fast as they can to that picture and then say all together “God is good!”
Say during the activity: “We can thank God for ___________!” and randomly call out the different categories – food, family, friends, the world. Let everyone have a turn being the caller.
Say after the activity: “That was fun! God gives us food, family, friends, and a world full of good things because God is good! Who is good? God is good!”
Pray something like this:
“Dear God, We praise you because you are good! You provide us with family, friends, food and the world full of good things. We especially thank you for providing us with Jesus who can be our special friend forever. We love you, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
