Sunday, January 19 is Sanctity of Life Sunday. As believers we celebrate that God made us and He made us in His image. Before we were born, God had a plan for us. Help kids celebrate the value of life through this art activity.
green, yellow, and purple paint
white construction paper
paintbrushes (large and small)
*Option: You can substitute a large single-color stamp pad and a green marker for the paint.
Read Psalm 139:13-14. Point out that God has made each child remarkably and wondrously.
As you help each kid create their handprint flowers, remind them of these special Bible truths:
God made me, so I am special.
God loves me.
God will always love me.
God has plans for me.
Give each kid a piece of white construction paper. Help kids print I am remarkably and wondrously made on the bottom of their papers.
Pour some yellow or purple paint onto a plate and after it spreads out, allow a kid to place their hand palm down in the paint. Guide her to stamp a handprint in the middle of the construction paper. Use a baby wipe to clean off the hand and repeat the process with the other hand.
Allow kids to use a small paintbrush and green paint to add stems to their handprint flowers.
