Children’s Activities

Activities:

Please read together the bible passage for this Sunday taken from Mark 4.26-34: Jesus is telling stories about planting seeds and helping them to grow to show people how he wants his people and the church to grow.  You could talk about this question: have you ever tried to grow something in your garden? What did you have to do? What do seeds need to grow into healthy full size plants?

To do:

      • Buy a pack of cress seeds and plant the seeds inside a hollow egg shell to make an egg head – see instructions on:  https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/crackin-cress-heads.
      • Draw an outline of a plant or flower – cover it in glue and sprinkle seeds you have at home onto the glue e.g. sunflower, poppy, sesame seeds, lentils… Shake off and you should have a lovely seedy picture!

As you do these activities, think how God can help you to grow and how you can help those around you.
