1. Create snow.
Live where it doesn’t snow? No problem. Try instasnow.
2. Teach an object lesson on forgiveness based on snow.
Bible verse: Though your sins are scarlet, I will make them white as snow.” Isaiah 1:18
How would you describe snow? (Make some snow or bring some in from outside. Let kids play with it as they describe it.)
There is an old hymn that has a line in it that says, “Wash me and I will be whiter than snow.” When Jesus washes our sins away, we are left pure and clean like snow.
How does Jesus wash our sins away? We repent. That means that we are sorry for what we have done. We tell Him we are sorry and we make the decision to go “the other way.” In other words, we decide to do things different next time.
Jesus forgives our sin and makes us pure as snow.
