Bible Lesson: John the Baptist played a role in God's plan by telling the people to get ready for Jesus, the coming Messiah.
Bible Verse: Luke 1: 57-80
Age Range: Kindergarten - 4th grade
John the Baptist Prepares the Way for JesusJohn came to tell others about the light in darkness. To begin our Sunday School class we did some really fun glow in the dark games to help kids remember "light in the darkness".
Note: We had several small lamps throughout the room to not be "pitch dark" and had one small group room that had light and a coloring sheet in case any of the kids were uncomfortable - they weren't. They LOVED it!
1. Glow in the Dark Hopscotch
In our dark room (with only a couple small lamps) we had 3 black lights spread throughout our large room to make the neon duct tape glow. (as seen above).
It really looked super cool!
We used bean bags with this classic game.
2. Glow in the Dark Tic Tac Toe
We used neon yellow duct tape to set up several tic tact toe grids. we made the circle and "x" pieces out of glow sticks we got at the Target dollar section.
3. Glow in the Dark Bowling
We made the bowling lane using more glow sticks. The pins were water bottles with glow sticks inside them. We had a glow in the dark ball (size L or XL) the kids used.
4. Books of the Bible Sort
We also had the books of the bible listed on neon paper. The kids had to stick it on the Old or New Testament wall.
John the Baptist Craft for Kids
God had a special purpose for Zechariah and Elizabeth’s baby. John the Baptist told people to get ready for Jesus, the coming Messiah. God knew John’s name long before Zechariah and Elizabeth did. God knows each of our names too, and He has a plan for each of us.
It was such a fun, memorable Sunday school lesson!
