Make "Give Thanks" Rocks - Short And Sweet

Verses: "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18 
Goal: Make a craft that helps to remind your child to give thanks to God.
 Parent preparation: 
  • Get supplies: flat rocks, sharpie, paper (it works easier if it is thin), modgepodge (or thin white glue with water), brush. 
  • Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Psalm 106:1, 1 Thessalonians 1:2, 1 Timothy 6:6-8

What to do:
  • Find flat rocks.
  • Wash the rocks. 
  • Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18 and talk with your child about always giving thanks to God. 
  • Make a list together of things that we can always give thanks to God for. 
  • Have your child pick which of these things to put on a rock. 
  •  Write on a piece of paper with a sharpie.
  •  Paint modgepodge on rock, put piece of paper on rock and paint over it (really soak the paper).
  • Let it dry. 
  • Display somewhere to remind you and your child about giving thanks to God.
"Short and Sweet" are short blog posts that share ideas of how to teach the sweetness of God's Word to your child.
