Suggested Story Book: God Made You Nose to Toes by Leslie Parrott
Scripture Reference: For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14
Lesson Time: Read the book to the children. After finishing the story, ask children questions such as:
- Who made you?
- Are you loved by God?
- What part(s) of you did God make?
You can ask as many questions as you like. Make sure you reiterate that God created each person and each body part they have. Tell them that God did this because He loves them very much.
- Jesus Loves Me
- God Made Me
- Measure a piece of butcher paper to fit each child and cut it.
- Have each one lie down on the paper so that you can trace them.
- Let them decorate their picture by coloring in their eyes, nose, ears, mouth, etc. If you have chosen pieces of fabric the children can use them to create clothes and glue them on in the proper places. If you choose wiggly eyes, they can put them on as well.
- Children can take the picture home or you can use them to decorate the walls of your classroom.
