Fruit of the Spirit Summer - Week 4 - Self Control

Bible Story/verse

Adam and Eve - Genesis 3

2 Timothy 1:7 God didn’t give us a spirit that makes us weak and fearful. He gave us a spirit that gives us power and love. It helps us control ourselves.

Fruit Association - Apple
Why we always depict Eve with an apple is beyond me since the Bible only mentions fruit but we do so here are a bunch of apple crafts. Since I haven't made fruit prints with the kids yet I will probably do that. I also like the simple paper plate apple.

Physical
Play Red Light Green Light

Have the kids ride their bikes/trikes/scooters, set up a "track" and you be the stop light

I have a particular Kindermusik song that I will sing with the kids - we march and we march and we march and we STOP, we jump and we jump and we jump and we STOP.....etc

You could also play the game "Freeze" or Simon Says (listening and then controlling what they do or not do)
