Psalm 139:14 says, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I know that full well!” How amazing it is to know that God carefully made each one of us. We are incredibly unique at the very core of our beings. This is a truth that our little ones need to embrace as soon as possible, before the world leaves its critical and judgmental imprint on their hearts and minds. Here are two Scripture activities to help get your preschoolers to see that God made each one of them very special.
How Did God Make You?
For this activity, you will need to find out 3 to 5 special or interesting things about each child from their families. For example, one child’s family might tell you that their child was named after his grandfather, or that they were born in a foreign country. Write each of these comments on one side of separate index cards. On the other side, either place a picture of the child or write his name. Now decorate a bag or a box that says, “How Did God Make You?” Place all the cards inside the box. You are now ready to play the game.
Read Psalm 139:14 to your children. Explain that God made each person very special. We all have things that are very wonderful and interesting to learn about. Show the children the bag or box and say that inside the box are cards that describe or tell an interesting point about each child in the class. Say that you will pick out a card and read what is on the card. Then say that you want the children to guess whom the card is talking about. After the children make a guess, turn the card over and reveal the picture or name of the child. Play until all the cards have been read.
