Supplies: Peeps, Toothpicks
This is an object lesson that will work well on its own. However, it would be an amazing way to add an application to the Small Group Peep Tower Challenge.
“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” - 1 Corinthians 12:12
“Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'” Matthew 28:18-20
Objective: In this object lesson, kids will learn that we can all play a part in sharing the the love of Jesus and Gospel with the world around us.
For this object lesson, you’ll need to build a small structure out of Peeps and toothpicks. You can do this beforehand, but with some practice you can build this structure while you share.
Check out this Very Helpful Visual© for some visual reinforcement:
As you demonstrate the Peep Tower, you’ll make note of how each of the individual Peeps play a part in the structure. And that with the Peeps working together, the structure can stand.
And that we can all play a part in sharing the love of Jesus with the world around us. You can note that each Peep is different and has a different point in the tower but each one is just as important to hold it altogether.
The best thing about this object lesson is that it can fit within your Easter kids church service OR you could use it the following week when all the Easter candy is on sale!
