April 2009 Sharing Time:
Following His Way – by Shauna Gibby
This sharing time will help children understand that by following Jesus they can return to live with Heavenly Father.
Preparation: Obtain a ball of yarn and the pictures of Jesus Christ mentioned in the presentation. Before sharing time, post the pictures around the room. Tie one end of the yarn to a chair near the back of the room.
Presentation: Ask the children to look around the room and raise their hand if they can see a picture of Christ. Choose a child. Have them take the ball of yarn and string a line from the chair to the picture they found. Place a chair near the picture and tie the yarn to it. Discuss what Jesus is doing in the picture and how the children can follow His example. Sing a song that reinforces the principle, if desired.
Choose additional children and repeat choosing pictures, stringing yarn, discussing principles, and singing until all the pictures have been used.
