Measuring God’s Love Activities

measuring rice kids activity for sunday school
We started about by giving each of the kids a ruler, a pen, and this card (printable included below). On it were several things for them to measure. We explained that these were ways for the kids to measure distance, time, height etc. in preparation for our lesson today when we were going to measure God’s love for us.

We had several stations with stop watches to measure time, tape measures to measure height, measuring cups to measure rice, and more.

At the end the kids looked up Ephesians 3:18 which tells us: “…grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ”

When we came back together as a group, we talked about how we can measure things, but can’t measure God’s love; it is infinite! And it will NEVER run out!


John 3:16 Craft for Kids

John 3 16 printable craft for kids

This is such a cute, simple craft for kids! Just print the John 3:16 Valentine Heart below on cardstock. Then, the kids will use a hole punch to make holes around the heart. Next they will color in the hearts in the center that spell “valentine”. Finally, they will use about 2 feet of red yarn to sew the heart. around the outside.

The kids really enjoyed this craft and it was perfect to make right around Valentines Day. We encouraged the kids to think if there was someone they knew they could give the heart to, to share God’ love with others!
