Potpourri Ornaments

Reader Submitted

Teach kids to how to reach those around them, including their families, by living the faith that is presented in this craft-based Bible lesson.

Objective: Kids will learn that God uses them to reach others.

Stuff you'll need: Frozen-juice can lids, wooden craft sticks, small boxes with lids, card stock and scissors, large buttons, potpourri, white glue, 8-inch lengths of narrow ribbon, and small doilies or paper coasters.

Text: Read aloud 2 Corinthians 2:15.

Tell kids to:

  1. Choose an object to create an ornament.
  2. Spread glue all over one side of your object.
  3. Press both ends of a piece of ribbon into the glue to form a loop.
  4. Cover the glue-covered side of your object with potpourri. Allow this to dry
  5. Optional: Glue a doily to the back or bottom of your object.

Talk teasers

Ask: How does your potpourri ornament smell? What does it mean that we are a "fragrance of Christ"? How do you think your faith in Christ smells to the people around you-very fragrant, a little fragrant, or not fragrant at all? How can we be very fragrant for Christ at school? at home? at play?

Say: Use your ornament to remind you that Jesus wants us to be like him.

Close in prayer for the areas children mention, and ask God to work a miracle in those areas.
