Messengers of the Good News
Thought I’d share an idea my 13-year old son and I had that I'll be developing into a cooking lesson in December. In reading through the Christmas story in Luke 2, we came up with this idea to go with our theme of “Messengers of the Good News” …
Giving the kids each an empty bowl and setting all the ingredients in the middle of the table, kids will read the story in Luke 2. We’ll pause at each key person or concept and match a food ingredient with the person/idea. Foods will be …
Shepherds … candy cane (small ones individually wrapped that they’ll crush, then put in their bowl)
Flocks … whipped cream
Night … star sprinkles or white dot sprinkles
Angel of the Lord … Angel food cake
Glory … yellow sprinkles
Jesus … still thinking about this – “life saver” candy? "Treasure" candy? Or manger idea?
Heavenly host … mini marshmallows
Spread the word … stir up the ingredients and then spread it out
As they eat we’ll get their ideas of how they will be messengers of the Good News this Christmas – real ways kids their age can tell others about Jesus. May follow up with the “story of the candy cane” and have them make/decorate cards with the story and attach canes to give to those they want to share the message with.
