Today we learned about Gideon and the Midianites from Judges 6, 7:1 – 24, 8: 22-23. Help to reinforce the lesson to your child this week by talking to him or her about the lesson and helping him or her learn the memory verse.
Here are a few activity ideas…
Help your child memorize the verse.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Read this devotional from Kids Corner together with your child. http://www.kidscorner.net/bible/devotions/the-disoriented-express-part-2
Allow your child to do an online jigsaw puzzle of Gideon at Garden of Praise. http://gardenofpraise.com/bibl12s.htm
For family movie night, watch the video “Gideon: Tuba Warrior” by Veggie Tales.
Sing “Be Bold and Be Strong” and “I Will Give My All” and “I Will Arise and Go Forth” by the Donut Man. You can get them on itunes.
