Floating, Flying, Exploding Seeds!
“Plant what is right. Then you will harvest good things.”
—HOSEA 10:12 ICB
We will talk about how God made plants able to spread across the world even though they can’t move! We will also discuss how God want us to spread kindness and how it is supposed to be explosive. Light up the world!
Dry Ice Explosions & Bottle Rockets
Kids will design kindness containers. Fill them up with
examples of kind actions strips food coloring soap and warm water.
Once finished they will take them to the explosion zone and retreat to
a safe distance while the catalyst is added and to see the explosion.
Kids will decorate and design their bottle rocket for launch.
Note: This nights experiment is not recommended for sound sensitive children.
Melting Rocks and Hearts
"The glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain." —EXODUS 24:17 NIV
We will discuss what lava is and how it shows the power of God. Kids will watch an under water explosion experiment and then create their own take home lava lamps.
This one is juuuust right!
"Who knows, you may have been chosen queen for just such a time as this." —ESTHER 4:14 ICB
We will discuss just how perfectly placed God put Earth so that life could exist. How precise he was in order to create a perfect planet. We will also talk about how he did the same with each of them. Creating them to exist now and for what purpose.
Experiment: Dominos Effect. Kids will work independently or in teams to perfectly place their dominos in order to create an awesome domino fall!
Even elephants hiccup!
"Do not do wrong to a person to pay him back for doing wrong to you. Or do not insult someone to pay him back for insulting you. But ask God to bless that person. Do this, because you yourselves were called to receive a blessing."
—1 PETER 3:9 ICB
Kids will learn about hiccups. What purpose do they serve. Did you know most hiccups last only a few minutes, but Charles Osborne had a case of the hiccups that lasted from 1922 to 1990. That’s 68 years of hiccups! He hiccupped between 20 and 40 times every minute. Doctors estimate he hiccupped more than 430 million times in his life!
We will talk about how like hiccups we can’t control we also can’t control the actions of others. We can control our own actions though.
Experiment: Elephant tooth paste. We will demonstrate an adult version before allowing the kids to do their own kid friendly one.
