You are not invisible- Bright Idea poster

A Child of God- Finish the faces (a boy and a girl)

Heavenly Father Loves Me- Scroll down and cut these snowflakes out before class then decorate them in class

Know Who You Are- Make stick puppets with these faces and do some fun small skits or sayings as each child holds one

I am a Child of God- Picture frame with the tag "I am a child of God." The kids can draw themselves inside or make this crown frame instead

I am a Child of God- Frame with pictures to cut out and glue around it. I like the concept but think it would be annoying to cut out all the pictures- stickers would be great though!

We Are All Children of God- Find the matching pictures and talk about even though we are all different, we are all still children of God

I am a Child of God- This is supposed to be a yearly advent but it would be fun to do just like a puzzle- read the scriptures with it or pull things from the lesson to put it together.

I am a Child of God- A box to put together- I'd skip the scripture part for this age but I'm sure you could have fun with the box still- roll it like a dice and talk about each scene.
