Season of Wonder: Treasure

17 Dec

bigstock-Open-treasure-chest-vector-i-174319581Go on a treasure hunt. Hide coins, a small wrapped toy, candy or other treasure and have the kids look for it. What makes something treasure? What makes something valuable?

Treasure

Read:  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19

Ask: The shepherds had just visited baby Jesus and told all the people about him. That is what Mary is thinking about. What does it mean to treasure up all these things? How is Jesus a treasure to you?

Pray: Thank you Lord for bringing Jesus, our treasure. Help us to think about him and to treasure his love for us in our hearts.

Others things to do:

*Make a treasure box. Write words on pieces of paper that describe Jesus and place in the treasure box.

*Put on some quiet music. Sit and silently think about Jesus. Coloring or drawing will help kids to stay focused.
