Sermon Title: "What to Do with the Leftovers"
Scripture Reading: John 6:1-14
BASKET RELAY: Divide the class into two teams and each team may have one basket to collect small items in a short time limit. The team that collects the most within the time frame is the winner. Items to collect could be tiny wrapped candies, small plastic balls, pine cones, spoons, etc, that have been scattered all over the designated floor space. Children can work together as a team, or one child from each team can take their turns as well.
BREAD BIBLE VERSE: The teacher can trace many loaves of bread and put one of the Bible verse words on each loaf. Scatter the loaves of bread around the circle or on the classroom table and let children put the bread in the correct order. Tape the loaves of bread to a classroom wall or the door, as desired.
LEFT OVERS ACROSTIC: Write LEFT OVERS along the left side of a poster board or chalk board. Encourage children to think of words for each letter that would be things that children could share with others when they have much to share.
BASKET ART: Provide children with construction paper and markers, to decorate their baskets for fish. The paper can be cut into a square. Then cut slanted slits in each corner of the paper. The corners will fold over each other and tape in place and will form a basket... add a piece of construction paper for the handle. Write words from today's lesson and give children a bagel, muffin or another type of bread, as well as some gold fish crackers.
SHARE A SNACK: Provide children with pieces of bread to dip into various choices of dips such as chocolate sauce or cheese sauce. Or let children each have a piece of bread to spread with their favorite topping such as peanut butter, jam, cheese, etc
