      Have an inexpensive kite for each child or a drawing for them to complete as the teacher discusses the 5 Christian aspects of a kite - concentrating on the Holy Spirit the most, to go along with this Bible lesson. Here are the 5 analogies for the Kite that we learn on KITE DAY each year. 1) The cross shape dowels are how you begin to build a kite and the CROSS is the beginning of the Christian life; 2) a kite needs a tail to keep the kite stable in the wind and Christians have the Word of God, to keep them stable; 3) a kite needs covering to catch the wind - Jesus covers all our sin and debt; 4) a kite has to be anchored to something that won't blow away and we, as Christians have Jesus Christ as our anchor; and 5) kites need the wind to fly. The HOLY SPIRIT is our helper to lift us up.

    lesson on empathy- In this activity, students volunteer to choose a shoebox to open and put the shoes on from the box. A written scenario inside each box tells about the person who wears the shoes. Based on the information given, the student has to "put themselves in that person's shoes," identifying how that person might feel. The class then suggests ways we might show compassion to the person in the shoes.

    Parable of the Sower Game Directions: Lay the felt pieces on the ground reminding the children of the different places seeds landed: black rocks, green weeds, brown good soil and a red bird. Take turns tossing the bean bag seeds, trying to land on the brown good soil. Prayer: God, Thank you for the stories Jesus told. Let our hearts be like the good soil. Let your love grow and grow and grow inside of us. Amen.
