Review Game: Crown Toss
The website below shows how to construct this game but the basic premise of the game is the review questions will be in crowns and the children will try and toss the ball into a crown to answer a question. This would probably work better with a smaller class or if you break your kids up into groups.

Devotional: Oh the Places You’ll Go
This devotional pairs the Dr. Seuss book Oh the Places You’ll Go with Jeremiah 29:11. I think it does a good job of explaining the plan God has for our lives at a younger level. You will need to open the PDF to read the devotional part.

Craft: Oh the Places God Will Take Us
Print off balloon PDF below on colored sheets of paper. Have kids think about what God may have them do in the future and the plan God may have for their lives. You can suggest thinking about the talents God has already given them and what kind of job they would be best at or maybe where God may have them live someday. You then could hang them all together on the wall. You could pair this craft with the Dr. Seuss devotional above.

Craft: What’s in your heart?
With this activity students will cut out a heart shape from construction paper. On one side of the heart students will write words that describe a heart that does not please God (lying, stealing, disobedience, cheating, bullying, etc.). On the other side students will write words that describe a heart that pleases God (obedient, honest, faithful, kind, serves others, joyful, etc.). Have Scriptures available to direct them to Godly attitudes.
