Animals for God


Remember the growth capsules you used to get as a little kid? They looked like colored medicine, and when you put them in warm water, they grew into a sponge. You never knew exactly what you were getting. It was so fun to be surprised with a different shape. I don't remember doing anything with the sponges after they had grown; the whole point was watching them change.


Each year I look forward to the first week I get to teach in the new year. We get to be animals for God. The kids love it, and I love making it happen. I bring several of the growth capsules with me to my class. The kids choose a color, and the animal is a complete surprise. We soak them in warm water at the beginning of class, and by the end they have an animal that only they get to be. 

Each animal has a theme Bible verse for the year, and a couple characteristics that describe the animal. Every year the list of animals grows. The first year I did this, we started out with only 6 animals. Now we are up to 18 different animals to choose from. I love the excitement the kids get as they discover which animal they are, and what special things God has planned for them this upcoming year. 

Enjoy!
