Jesus Cares About Me

I can't believe it's already been 4 years since I last taught this lesson! Eventually all my lessons get used again with a new class and new children at church. This week we were discussing how Jesus cares about all our problems. Nothing is too big for Him to fix. There is nothing He can't do. 

To help the kids better understand this lesson, I put together this collection of doctor tools. I did not draw any of these tools. I found them all in Google images and I added spiritual truth to each tool.

Jesus cares about all of our problems, and He gives us ....

Love - When nobody seems to care

Joy - When we are sad

Peace - When we are worried or afraid

Hope - When things are going badly

Purpose - When we don't know what to do

Healing - When we have been hurt by others

Friends & Family - When we need someone to be there for us

I printed both the doctor's tools and the doctor's bag on white cardstock paper. This gives them a little stiffness which will help the tools survive through an entire lesson of play. 

I always try to do some kind of application to our lesson. This time I wrote a prayer on the back of the doctor's bag with some blanks that the kids can fill in. It helps personalize it a little more, and gets the kids thinking about the good things that God has given them.

To make the doctor's bag, you cut around the large rectangle. You fold on the dotted line. I gave the kids a couple pieces of tape to close the edges of the bag. You could use a glue stick. And to make a handle, I had the kids use their scraps of paper from cutting out the rectangle. I gave the kids more tape to add the handle to the inside of their doctor's bag. Some kids wanted two handles, some kids were happy with one handle.

This was a very simple craft, but gave us the chance for a lot of discussion on how Jesus cares about every single problem we have!

Alphabet Photography

free alphabet photography photos to download

For several years I've been capturing letters in nature. It's a favorite thing for me to do with my children when we visit a new place. We roam around downtown hunting for letters of the alphabet. My kids have a good eye. I have a lot more of these letters than I have posted here. 

It makes a walk more exciting when you have letters you are searching for. This letter collection is from all over. Not very many are actually from the city we live in. That makes them even more special. Each letter has a story and place behind it.

It's so fun to put the letters together to spell out words! I once made a wooden sign as a gift. I printed each 4x6 inch photo and I glued them with mod podge onto a large wooden sign. I added a hanger to the back of the wood, and I had a one of a kind work of art. So neat to see hanging on a wall!

You can feel free to use the photos for your own PERSONAL use.  But please be kind and do not claim these pictures as your own or offer them for downloads. I unfortunately have had that happen to my work and each time it's hurtful.  Please feel free instead to post a link to right back here.

You can see from the letters that I have posted, some are very easy to find, and some are EXTREMELY difficult. There are a couple letters that we only have found one of and there are some letters that we have found as many as 10!! In the future I hope to add more alphabet letters to our collection. It would be fun to add numbers as well!
