• We suggest you start and end
in small group so kids connect
relationally with one leader and
other similar-aged peers.
• If you have multiple small groups
meeting in one room, try using
circle area rugs to give each group
their own spot.
• Offer as many of the activities as
your time, space, and resources
allow.

What You Do:
Collect the offering from kids as they arrive. Ask them some questions to get
them thinking about the topic of the story today.
What You Say:
“Have you ever built something? What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever built?
How long did it take you to build it? What kind of materials do you like to build
with? How do you feel when something you build breaks, falls over, or gets
damaged?”

you were their age.)

What You Do:
Put the tarp down to catch sand or water spills. Put the tub of sand and cups in
the middle of the tarp and have the kids use the cups and their hands to build
a tiny sand castle in the tub. If the sand isn’t damp enough to build with, add a
little water from the pitcher. When you are finished building, clean up by having

wipes to finish cleaning. Then pour the pitcher of water over the sand castle to see what happens to it. The sand castle will
be destroyed. As you wrap up the activity, show some pictures of elaborate sand castles or sculptures.
What You Say:
“When you build with sand you can make something that looks pretty amazing, like these sand sculptures in the pictures.
But when they get wet, the same thing happens to them as happened to our little sand castle. They fall apart. Today we
are learning from a story about two builders. One builder built a house ON sand. And when a storm hit, what happened
was not pretty.
Let’s go to Large Group and learn more about what this story of the builders means for us.”

Make the connection of how today’s Bible story applies to real life experiences
through interactive activities and discussion questions.
* 1. LEARN A HANDSHAKE (application activity)
What You Need: No supplies
What You Do:
Divide your group in half. Tell the group that they are all going to learn a special
handshake for their group. Half of the kids will learn the handshake by listening
only. Half of the kids will learn the handshake by listening and doing it as they
hear what to do. Have the listen-only group turn away from you (so they can’t
see you) and sit on their hands (so they can’t follow along and practice). Then
teach the handshake to the other group, describing and showing each step
and having them practice it with a partner. Once the listen-and-do group has
learned the handshake, have both groups get up and try to do the handshake
with a partner from their same group: listen-only kids with listen-only kids and
listen-and-do kids with listen-and-do kids. The listen-and-do kids will make fewer
mistakes and be more confident doing the handshake. As you wrap up, have the
listen-and-do kids teach the handshake to the other kids so that they all know it
before moving on.
What You Say:
“Why did one group do better than the other? It’s because they practiced the
handshake and didn’t just hear about it.

2. HEAR IT! DO IT! (application activity / review the Bible story / great for active learners)
What You Need: “Suggested Action Sheet” Activity Page
What You Do:
This game is similar to the electronic game Simon, but it uses actions instead of lights and colors. You will say, “Hear
it,” and then read the first of the actions from the action sheet. (The four actions on the action sheet are actions that
should remind the children of moments in the Bible story. After you have called out those actions, you can make up your
own actions to continue the game.) After reading the description of the action, you will say, “Do it,” and let the kids do
the action. Repeat the process but read the first TWO actions. Then repeat again, reading the first THREE actions, and
then with all four actions. See how long a chain of actions the kids can hear and then do without making a mistake. By
practicing hearing and then doing, they will get better and better.
What You Say:
“The first four actions in our game reminded us of things that happened in our Bible story. By the end of this game,
you were doing a long list of actions! Very good job! Just like you learned the list of actions by hearing and then doing,
we can learn the actions that God wants us to do in our lives by hearing and doing what God wants.
We hear by
committing to a plan to read the Bible, God’s Word. That’s how we listen and learn what God wants us to do. Then
we follow through on that by doing what we have learned. The more we listen and do, listen and do, listen and do
what God wants, the easier hearing and following God will become. Practice hearing what God says.”
3. HEAR IT! SAY IT! (memory verse activity)
What You Need: “Memory Verse Card” Activity Page
What You Do:
Help the children look up the verse and read it together.
Finding verses with 2nd and 3rd graders: Guide kids to open their Bibles to the front and find the table of contents. (Hold up a
Bible opened to the table of contents to show the kids what the page looks like.) When the kids find the table of contents, lead
them to find 1 Timothy in the list under “New Testament.” When the kids find 1 Timothy, lead them to look at the page number
beside the word. Explain that the number tells them on what page they can find 1 Timothy. Help the kids find the page. When

they find 1 Timothy, explain that the big numbers on the page are the chapter numbers. Help them find chapter 4. Explain that
the small numbers are verse numbers. Help them find verse 8 in chapter 4. Explain that the “a” means to read only the first part
of the verse.
Give every child a “Memory Verse Card”. Read the verse with the kids. Then, starting with you, have each person read
one word of the verse, going around the group. When the last word of the verse is said, the next person starts over at

the beginning of the verse without stopping. Encourage the kids to keep saying it faster and faster with less space
between each word. If you have time, after they have a good rhythm down, have them try it without looking at the verse
on the card.
What You Say:
“We trained ourselves to say this verse pretty quickly! Good job. We train ourselves to do things by doing them over and
over. That is true for physical things like running or learning to hit a baseball. It is also true for spiritual things like reading
our Bibles and doing what we learn. Remember that our verse reminds us that spiritual training is of much greater value
than physical training.
Make a plan and commit to do your spiritual training of reading the Bible every day this
week, and after that, too! Put this Memory Verse Card somewhere you will see it and it can remind you of your
commitment. If you don’t know where to start reading the Bible, our GodTime cards have verses you can read and
other suggestions to help you in your spiritual training. Practice hearing what God says.”
PRAY AND DISMISS
What You Need: No supplies needed
What You Do:
Tell the kids to get into groups of two or three. Kids will tell each other their plans for reading the Bible this week and will
pray for each other to stick to their commitment. Have them share with each other the time they have planned to read
the Bible. If they haven’t already, have them think of a back-up time in case they miss their first time. For example: “I will
read the Bible right after breakfast. If I miss reading it then, I will read before I go to bed.” Then guide them to say a short
prayer for their partner or group.
What You Say:
“Today we have learned that commitment takes planning and practice.
We need to make a plan to read the Bible
and put that plan into practice. That takes commitment! When you make a commitment, a good idea is to tell
someone about it. When you tell someone else, it will make the commitment more real to you and make you more
likely to do it. Also, the person you tell can help you by praying for you and encouraging you if you mess up or miss
your commitment. Practice hearing what God says.
©2014 The reThink Group, Inc.
All rights reserved. www.ThinkOrange.com
(Guide the kids through this prayer for their partners or groups)
“Dear Jesus, I pray for my partner __________. Help my partner and me to keep our commitments and stick to our plans
this week to read the Bible so we can learn and do what You want us to! In Jesus’ name we pray, amen!”
Give each child a GodTime card. Pass out Parent Cue cards as adults arrive to pick up.
