February Memory Verse School Age Activity

February Memory Verse

This our our second of our three part memory verse activites. We hope you will tune in tomorrow for an activity you can do with your tween!

2 Corinthians 5:21
New International Version (NIV)
21 God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

School Age Activity
Use this activity to help your child understand that Jesus is the one who makes us righteous (clean).

Gather a old t-shirt or cloth towel, washable marker, scissors, tub of warm water with soap. With your child cut out a heart shape from the cloth. Using the marker draw spots all over the heart.

Talk to your child about our sin, how this makes our hearts dirty before God. Name some ways that you and your child sin. Place the heart in the warm, soapy water and swish it around.

Tell them that Jesus was perfect he had not sin just like the clean water but he makes us righteous (clean). Pull out the heart. Take time to thank God that he can do want we cannot. It is Jesus who makes us righteous.
