Ant-Less Picnic

Children's Ministry Magazine

Picnics are fun for everyone during the summer months, but sometimes it's just too hot to be outside. So why not have a picnic inside your room?

Spread a blanket on the floor for kids to sit on. Provide no-mess snacks such as crackers and paper plates.

Have kids bow their heads and pray, thanking God for the food and friends at church. As kids eat, tell them, "God loves you, and your friends at church love you." After kids enjoy their snacks, open the Bible to Psalm 66:19. Young children will sense that the Bible is important as you hold it and talk about the Scripture. Then sing this song to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It":

If you're happy and you know it, talk to God!
If you're happy and you know it, talk to God!
If you're happy and you know it, then your words will surely show it,
If you're happy and you know it, talk to God!

Oh, I really love to pray and talk to God!
Oh, I really love to pray and talk to God!
Oh, I love to talk to God, and I do it every day,
Oh, I really love to pray and talk to God!
