WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Explain to the children that God rewards us when we show His goodness and kindness to others. Tell students that during today’s play time you are going to watch for children who treat others nicely and then allow those children to choose a reward from “The Goodness Bag.” Help the class understand that rewards from God come in many forms. The small prizes will remind them that God is good to us, and we can be good to others.
