Guiding Question: Why is it important to lean on God?
Materials: Internet access, catalogues, paper, pencils
Procedure: Review the story of the Birth of John the Baptist. Remind the students that even when John’s birth seemed impossible, God made it possible because it was part of His plan for John to do great things for God’s Kingdom. God wants us to have faith in Him when life is both easy and difficult. God always keeps His promises to love and care for us through everything we deal with. It is important to lean on God and pray about the difficult things going on in your life so you can have strength and wisdom from God.
Introduce the activity. Have the students go online to retail websites or give them catalogues and find everything they would need for a baby: clothes, toys, special items, furniture, etc. Have them create the “shopping list” with everything someone would need to buy. Review the words to make sure the students have found and understood them all.
Additional Questions: How can students learn the types of food babies need?
Supplemental Activity: Have students research and create a shopping list of the types of foods babies and toddlers need.
