Activity: Making Plans
This activity helps children think about the plans they already know about such as for the month or over the summer and then looks at the plans they don’t know about such as what they will be doing in high school or as an adult. I would say this is geared more for the older children but you could do it with the younger children as well. The attached PDF does a great job of laying the activity out.

Game: God’s Loving Plans
In this game children will follow the leaders’ plans and find missing envelopes. It is a lot like a scavenger hunt and could be a lot of fun for the children. If you have a smaller class you could hide some of the envelopes in other places in Children’s Ministry Area but I would try to keep the majority of it in your room. The attached PDF will give you all the details of the game and how to set it up.

Snack: Bundle of Sticks
This is a fun snack to go along with the story. Basically just pretzel sticks tied together with a Twizzlers Pull and Peel. You could make them ahead of time or in class. Please make an allergy sign if you do this.
