This week, we’re talking about hands so here are some ideas for conversation starters with the children.
How many different things can you think of that you can do with your hands?
Think about different ways your hands can become “helping hands”…
- around your house
- in your garden
- around your neighbourhood
- around your country
- around the world.
How can you encourage others to use their helping hands?
How do we know that God has us in his hands?

Almost all crafts are made with our hands. What can you make this week? Try finger painting, knitting, or folding some origami animals.
Try painting flowers using your fingerprints for petals. Or maybe paint bugs or animals using your fingerprints for their heads & bodies. Use your imagination and see what you can create!
