Prep Time – Less than 10 minutes
Supplies – Construction Paper, Scissors, Crayons, Glue and Pen
Preparation for Craft Time:
Step 1 – On plain construction paper draw a pot and the scripture “Store Your Treasures in Heaven – Matthew 6:20”
Step 2: Cut small circles for the child to use as “gold”
Provide child with pot and crayons
Read scripture and have child repeat it
Discuss the idea of heaven as God’s home and where things do not break, etc.
Any time my child colors we talk about what color they are using
Once coloring is complete provide the child with glue and the coins
Allow the child to glue the coins to the pot
My child and I counted coins to reinforce another learning concept
If the weather were nice outside, I would take my child out to pick flowers and clovers to put on the craft
Discuss the idea of a pot of gold and a treasure
Ask child what they treasure, favorite toy, etc.
Repeat the scripture again
Always use craft time as an opportunity to intentionally engage in conversation with your child / children.
